LTD (BM Group) will replace its legacy business system and other generic software tools with the all-in-one Simparel® Enterprise solution.

“With our rapid growth, we recognized the need for a more capable and integrated business system,” explained Beili Liu, Vice President of Royal Blue Apparel. “After a three month evaluation, Simparel was our clear choice.

The knowledgeable Simparel team was able to effectively demonstrate how every step of our product lifecycle can be managed in a single, easy to navigate system.”

BM Group is planning to implement Simparel across its entire design and development, sourcing and production, sales and marketing, warehousing and distribution teams and processes. The Simparel vendor portal solution will enable both owned and partnered manufacturing facilities to collaborate directly in the system to ensure all relevant information is always up to date and accessible and all processes are transparent and compliant.

“Simparel will provide us with much more robust capabilities and performance than our previous systems,” continued Liu. “Based on what we now know about the Simparel system and experienced team, we expect to quickly benefit from having a single source of truth for our business that will help eliminate redundancies, improve inventory accuracy, reduce order error rates, and give us the ability to better report and analyze all aspects of our operational and financial performance.”
