1 August 2014 | News | Source: Katie Smith

Southeastern Performance Apparel (SEP) is implementing Simparel's all-in-one fashion business software to help streamline processes and drive growth.

The company manufactures formal wear for performing groups such as school choirs, bands and orchestras across the US and 15 other countries.

The software includes enterprise resource planning (ERP), product lifecycle management (PLM), manufacturing resource planning (MRP), supply chain management (SCM), and warehouse management (WMS).

By replacing its 17-year old system with the new one, SEP aims to make more-timely and better informed decisions, streamline business processes, and accelerate growth.

Once implemented, around 50 SEP employees at the group's Alabama headquarters will use the software to gain visibility and control over production workflow, order processing, inventory control, shipping and logistics, and other critical processes.
