(Lyndhurst, NJ, October 17, 2010) RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. announces that New York-based fashion brand Alexander Wang Inc. has successfully implemented the RLM FashionManager On-Demand enterprise software solution. The premier American designer has gone-live with the cloud-based FM On-Demand software in its product development, manufacturing, distribution, and financial management operations. Founded by celebrated designer Alexander Wang, the company has quickly become one of the most prominent names in women’s apparel, footwear, handbags and accessories. By replacing its in-house systems with RLM’s integrated, web-based software, Alexander Wang is among the many creative companies that are also innovating in the management of their business infrastructure.
“We wanted a system that covered all of our business needs,” stated CEO Aimie Wang. “It did not make sense for us to license and build costly interfaces for separate PLM, ERP, and financial packages. We considered best-of-breed systems, but none offered distinct advantages over the RLM’s fully integrated cloud computing solution.”
RLM FashionManager provides Alexander Wang with the integrated financial, manufacturing, and distribution tools it needs to keep everyone in the organization as well as outside vendors working from the same page. It also improves the company’s competitiveness and flexibility by improving its ability to capture sample room costs, maintain accurate fabric and trim inventory levels, project demand, and deliver its products on time.
“Since June, RLM has already implemented our merchandising, product development, trim, sample room, sales, and credit management teams into the system,” continued Ms. Wang. “RLM’s Management Console concept and system standards have also made it easy for everyone including new hires to quickly learn the system and meet our rapid growth requirements.”
The cloud-based FM On-Demand provides access to Alexander Wang locations in New York and across the globe through the internet; enabling Alexander Wang to leverage the benefits of the software without the need for capital investments in computer hardware and a large IT staff. Alexander Wang expects to add more system capabilities from RLM’s menu of more than 40 different application modules to meet future growth.
