Share Article

Billy Reid’s expansion plans include replacing its legacy non-cloud environment with end-to-end implementation of RLM Apparel Software’s cloud-based suite-- from design to development, sourcing to delivery, production to warehousing, sales to financials, and everything in between.

“We are building processes and compiling data that has not existed in our company's highly-segmented systems before. Having RLM’s full suite of tools to power our backend, merchandising and wholesale efforts is going to make all of this possible.”

RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces that Billy Reid, a leading worldwide designer and seller of luxury men’s and women’s clothing, footwear and accessories, will begin implementation of RLM’s cloud-based solutions suite. Approximately 25-30 users will use the system’s full range of capabilities across their Design, Production, Sales, Customer Service, Logistics and Finance departments, including an out-of-the-box integration to Joor.

Billy Reid’s Development and Production Teams will utilize the sourcing and raw materials portion of the RLM PLM package to manage their fabric purchases, bills of materials, contractors, and costs. In addition, Billy Reid plans to implement RLM’s Warehousing module for efficiency and accuracy for their warehouse operations. The foreign currency functionality of RLM’s Financials package will facilitate invoicing and customer transactions in various countries. Billy Reid will also utilize RLM’s EDI translation software to communicate with their network of large department store retailers like Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

According to Phil Henson, Vice President of Information Technology at Billy Reid, “We are building processes and compiling data that has not existed in our company's highly-segmented systems before. Having RLM’s full suite of tools to power our backend, merchandising and wholesale efforts is going to make all of this possible.”

“In addition, RLM’s robust ERP solutions will allow us to extend our cloud-based systems into our brick-and-mortar locations and website, giving us the foundation to completely rework our systems to enhance our customer experience.” Dr. Henson added.
