Lyndhurst, NJ (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
RLM Apparel Software Systems (http://www.ronlynn.com) announces that Brand Science dba LeSportsac (http://www.lesportsac.com), a leading American brand of stylish yet functional rip-stop nylon bags has begun implementation of the Fashion Manager™ enterprise resource planning (ERP) software at its New York headquarters. When in full production late this summer, the system will be used by approximately 40 users and replace the company's legacy business system. FashionManager promises to streamline LeSportsac's supply chain and demand fulfillment processes by adding powerful new seasonality, foreign currency, open stock management, and pre-configured third-party warehouse integration capabilities.
Despite challenging economic times, LeSportsac is making the investment in the new business solution as part of a strategic business plan to advance competitiveness. "Implementing FashionManager will provide important system functionality guaranteed to modernize our production and order fulfillment processes. Now more than ever, it is critical for businesses to pursue every strategic advantage", said President and Chief Operating Officer Steven Jacaruso.
LeSportsac chose RLM's FM On-Premise™ platform that will run on the company's in-house network and deliver a lower total cost of ownership than the company's previous system. The fashion industry-specific ERP solution will also provide the company with financial management and reporting, sales order management, product lifecycle management (PLM), production and inbound shipment tracking, electronic data interchange (EDI), and factor interface.
"We are pleased to be selected by LeSportsac", stated Andy Lynn, vice president of business development at RLM. "The global nature of their business and their need for a fully integrated fashion business solution makes for a great match."
At Since its founding in 1974, the LeSportsac bag has become an American icon, revolutionizing the Accessories industry with the introduction of its Classic Collection: fold in pouch, rip-stop parachute nylon travel bags and accessories. Thirty-five years later LeSportsac is sold in over 20 countries worldwide and is available at company-owned retail stores, http://www.lesportsac.com, department stores, duty free shops and other specialty stores.
