Men's wear clothing brand John Varvatos Enterprises (JVE) has implemented the FashionManager solution from RLM Apparel Software Systems to increase visibility and efficiency across its demand to delivery processes.

The cloud-based ERP solution has been rolled out across its retail, wholesale and e-commerce operations at its New York headquarters. As a result, JVE has witnessed significant improvements in financial and operational management efficiency.

Vice president and chief information officer Lee Goldenberg said: "With the rapid growth we are experiencing, we needed greater performance, capabilities, and usability than our old legacy systems could deliver. Because it consolidates all of our operations into a single business system that runs in the cloud, FashionManager enables us to provide a ‘rock star' IT experience for the entire John Varvatos team.

"With everything available through the web, we can all be more productive even when using mobile devices from any location. As a result, we are now making faster and better informed business decisions throughout the organisation."

Looking forward, JVE said it plans to implement the FashionManager PLM solution to streamline design and development processes. It also intends to roll out production and shipment collaboration tools to more than 50 vendors across Asia, Europe and Latin America during the second half of 2013.
