DeSL Launch Latest iPad & Android Apps for Product Management & Supplier Inspections


(Cardiff, March 23, 2012)DeSL a global company delivering integrated web based solutions for the Fashion, Apparel, Textile and Footwear sectors – announces the release of their latest iPad and Android app innovations.

With over 3 million of the new Apple iPad’s sold across the globe in March of this year alone and in-line with the increasing demand for enterprise use, DeSL’s iPad applications designed specifically for the clothing industry have been developed to enable companies to:

a. Better manage their sales order process.

b. Ensure social and ethical compliance.

c.  Enable inspection teams to perform product quality audits at factories.

In a fast moving industry where image and attention to detail is everything, the wow factor of the ipad app for sales personnel cannot be underestimated and enables users to:

a. Store entire seasonal product images in one easy off line access area.

b.  Visualise and access any detail such as product style, colour, description, price, delivery, theme and season by touching or scrolling the screen all in high resolution graphics.

Once an order is placed this is merely uploaded into the system for instant order management.

“This app allows for global sales control and ease of managing product changes and amendments leaving behind the current issues associated with physical sales books and paper,” says Colin Marks, CEO at DeSL.

“With full security, centralised sales data, access to historic seasonal information, efficiency in selling the right product at the right time, at the right price, sizes and quantities, it’s the must have fashion industry app.”

Over the last few years, competition and the discerning consumer have forced clothing companies to boost the number of suppliers they work with, naturally increasing their exposure to a range of social and ethical issues in the supply chain.

With social compliance at the top of everyone’s agenda, DeSL’s app enables clothing companies and fashion brands to fulfil this due diligence in the most thorough yet simple way, preventing the likelihood of negative publicity as a result of potential negligence in social and ethical management and working practices.

“We are seeing many companies appreciating the benefits of using our iPad apps to meet and exceed their requirements for Fair Trade, ethical trading, corporate responsibility and product quality. Companies can now ensure all quality and inspection steps are being followed stringently and consistently across all businesses and divisions, with the ability to build and use a database of all inspections performed, over a range of user defined criteria, to enable tracking and traceability in all levels of the supply chain, ” explains Colin Marks.
