Some of the solutions Lawson will be presenting at the two events include:

• Lawson Fashion Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) – a comprehensive application designed for retailers and manufacturers of apparel and accessories. This flexible, collaborative, web-based suite of applications facilitates the management of products, from design all the way through to production and helps enable you to innovate faster, but with more accuracy and with greater input from both your internal and external partners.

• Lawson QuickStep Fashion –  a solution that is preconfigured to provide features and functions mid-sized fashion companies need, and can address the different requirements of both brand owners that design, source, and distribute, and of manufacturing companies. QuickStep can reduce and streamline the steps required for a customized system implementation, saving you time and money, and taking the complexity out of deploying the Lawson M3 Enterprise Management solution for fashion companies. QuickStep offers the functionality you need to get up and running quickly, without it being a ‘lite’ version of the Lawson M3 solution.

• Lawson M3 Analytics – provides fast, easy-to-use business intelligence. It supplies your company with integrated information that helps you manage your business more strategically. It helps direct you to the critical areas of your business that need improvement, and provides measures which are focused on your organizational performance. It does so by collecting data from your M3 enterprise applications and providing you with key measures for analysis or reports.
