(LONDON , October 11, 2012) Global fashion and apparel software specialist, Momentis, has appointed Dominic Potter as UK Managing Director to drive growth in the UK market. Potter will be responsible for developing and executing Momentis’ go-to-market strategy in the UK for wholesale ERP and fashion PLM software, which will target fashion and apparel self-sourcing retailers, franchisees and wholesalers. Momentis is already working with a number of major retail brands in the UK including Oasis, Coast, Karen Millen , EWM, George at Asda and Lipsy.
Commenting on his appointment as UK MD of Momentis, Potter says, “I believe there are some great opportunities to improve business performance and profitability in the UK fashion and apparel software sector. The Momentis wholesale ERP and fashion PLM software solutions are one of the best-kept secrets in the UK market and I look forward to bringing the software to a wider audience of fashion and apparel businesses. Early adopters in the UK such as Oasis, Coast and Karen Millen have already seen how Momentis can streamline sourcing processes and improve supply chain management, helping them bring products to market quicker. More recently George at Asda has launched its international franchisee business with Momentis’ software solution.”
