TradeStone’s MLM software suite serves as a global platform that simplifies and manages all aspects of design, development and delivery for the retailer’s 3,000+ supplier community and estimated 800 internal users.
The enhanced visibility, communication and collaboration that TradeStone has provided Urban Outfitters has enabled them to be more agile, increase productivity and deliver more innovative and on-trend items to stores.
Urban Outfitters is utilizing TradeStone’s PLM solution to manage color, material and artwork libraries, define color palettes, specify product construction details and packaging, develop Bills of Materials, track samples and build technical specifications.
TradeStone PLM is replacing the retailer’s Web PDM solution, bridging the gap that previously existed between the design team and the other teams using TradeStone to develop the retailer’s novel and distinctive fashion, footwear and accessories.
Urban Outfitters has now deployed the full TradeStone Merchandise Lifecycle Management suite including PLM, Collaborative Sourcing, Order Management, Global Trade Management, Supplier Community Management and Business Intelligence.
“TradeStone is one of our more strategic technologies in helping us to deliver value to our company, customers and Wall Street,” said Mike Sparks, Director, Supply Chain Systems, Urban Outfitters.
“In terms of the PLM roll-out, our users are enthusiastic about its fun, easy and intuitive approach which has driven adoption to high levels across our design community. Among our standard users – TradeStone is simply known as THE global platform that enables them to do their jobs more efficiently and focus on what matters most – being creative and delivering designs that are setting the trends for tomorrow.”
“We’re very proud of the partnership with Urban Outfitters and the benefits that are being seen as the system continues to gain wider adoption among their thousands of users worldwide,” said Sue Welch, CEO, TradeStone Software. “Urban Outfitters stands out as a key example of the importance of a single platform that brings together global users for one common goal – delivering the most innovative products to market, at record speeds.”
