TradeStone Software, delivering Merchandise Lifecycle Management (MLM) solutions that unify the design, sourcing, ordering and delivery of retail goods, announced that Urban Outfitters has gone live with TradeStone’s PLM solution.

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.
