Alternative Apparel selects Lawson QuickStep Fashion

Jul '09
Lawson Software announced that Alternative Apparel, a U.S.-based manufacturer of apparel and accessories, has signed a contract to implement Lawson QuickStep Fashion, including Lawson e-Sales and Lawson Business Intelligence. The Lawson system will help Alternative Apparel meet its growth objectives by helping to consolidate many business processes into a single, integrated system. The contract was signed during Lawson's fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, which ended May 31, 2009.

Alternative Apparel is a lifestyle apparel brand for men, women and babies/toddlers across the U.S. as well as Canada, Italy, Germany, Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom.

The current business software in use at Alternative Apparel could no longer support new value-adding business processes, such as flexible inventory allocation and improved collaboration with customers and suppliers. The company needed more timely and accurate information for improved decision making.

"We needed to find a standard, industry-tailored solution along with people with fashion industry expertise to implement it," said Evan Toporek, president and COO for Alternative Apparel. "We chose Lawson because we felt a great cultural fit between our organizations and have appreciated the Lawson team's dedication. Lawson QuickStep Fashion will help bring support and transparency throughout our supply chain, from product concept to market."

"Lawson QuickStep Fashion combines industry-specific content with built-in business tools based on Lawson's experience and knowledge of the fashion industry," said Andrew Dalziel, global marketing director for Fashion at Lawson. "With more than 350 fashion customers globally, Lawson can offer businesses industry knowledge and industry-specific functionality that help fashion companies with a complex supply chain and pressured time-to-market achieve their goals."
