New York, New York (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Simparel, Inc. (http://www.simparel.com), a leading developer and marketer of next-generation business solutions for fashion and consumer goods brands, manufacturers and vertical retailers, announces that Southeastern Performance Apparel has begun implementation of the Simparel® enterprise software solution at its Dothan, Alabama (USA) headquarters. By replacing its legacy system with the advanced, all-in-one business solution, the global leader in choral, band, orchestra, and other group apparel will leverage the tools and information available in the new system to empower management and other teams to make more-timely and better informed business decisions, streamline business processes, and accelerate growth.

According to SEP Apparel President and CEO Marshall Crim, “When we decided to replace our 17-year old homegrown system, we conducted a lengthy evaluation focused on finding an effective and affordable solution with a value-added vendor partnership. After looking at both broad and industry-specific options, we concluded that Simparel provided our best fit for product capabilities, industry knowledge and best practices, and return-on-investment. In Simparel, we believe that we have found a system that will enable us to streamline processes and improve operations as well as a partner that can bring fresh ideas to help us improve and grow.”

Once implemented, about 50 SEP Apparel staff members will utilize the natively-integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), and Warehouse Management (WMS) toolset in Simparel to gain visibility and control over production workflow, order processing, inventory control, shipping and logistics, and other critical business processes.

“We are pleased with the opportunity to partner with Southeastern Performance Apparel,” noted John Robinson, Simparel SVP Sales and Marketing. “While serving them well over the years, their legacy system was simply unable to provide the flexibility and innovation they needed to take their business to the next level. Just as Simparel has done for many others, we will provide the organization with a greater return on investment, lower total cost of ownership, and reduced overhead costs while also facilitating revenue growth."
