SLG implements RLM FashionManager On-Demand ERP

RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc announces that Schottenstein Luxury Group (SLG) has begun implementation of its FashionManager On-Demand enterprise (ERP) solution at two of its prominent business units. Premier American glass manufacturer and retailer Steuben Glass LLC, based in Corning, NY, will leverage RLM's software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to replace its legacy financial system.

Manhattan-based handbag and jewelry retailer Judith Leiber LLC, a RLM client for more than 25 years, will move from its traditional on-premise implementation and upgrade to the FashionManager SaaS platform option to streamline operations and take advantage of the latest system developments.

“We wanted a system that could manage the needs of all of our companies,” stated SLG Vice President and CIO Jerry Kerr. “RLM has the integrated financial, manufacturing, and distribution tools we need to keep everyone in the organization on the same page. Also key to our decision was RLM's proven integrity and ability to provide the comfortable business relationship we need now and as we grow the business into the future.”

With 35 years of retail, senior IT management, and consulting experience including a 7 year stint at IBM, Kerr also sees financial and operational benefits for SLG in choosing RLM's hosted system option. “SLG will be able to leverage all that FashionManager has to offer without the need for large IT staffs and at a minimal operational expense. We also like the fact that RLM is managing the application and hardware for us. In our view, who else better to service the product than the manufacturer?”

In addition to handling multiple companies in a common system, FM On-Demand will accommodate access from a large number of company locations. SLG will also benefit from a common chart of accounts that will provide a consolidated view of financials. The system upgrade and move to on-demand service at Judith Leiber is scheduled to complete by mid-October. The implementation at Steuben Glass is expected to go-live prior to the end of December.

“We look forward to providing SLG with the integrated solutions they need to support their business model and growth”, stated Andy Lynn, vice president of business development at RLM. “We are pleased that they have chosen to maintain and build on an already highly productive business relationship.”

Formed in July 2008, Schottenstein Luxury Group (SLG) is the luxury division of privately-held Schottenstein Stores Corporation. SLG acquired iconic brands Judith Leiber, Steuben Glass and Adrienne Vittadini as well as the Italian luxury leather goods company Shiro in 2008.

Schottenstein Stores Corporation owns furniture merchants American Signature Inc. and Value City Furniture, and holds stakes in public companies American Eagle Outfitters Inc., Retail Ventures Inc., and DSW Inc.
