Blog: Leonie BarrieSoftware Scorecard

Leonie Barrie | 2 May 2006

Here’s something that should be of immense use to anyone tasked with the unenviable challenge of buying apparel software: a ranking that provides a head-to-head comparison of today’s top software vendors. Anything that not only does a lot of the legwork for you, but also includes feedback from existing users, has to be worth a look. The Software Scorecard is based on votes from apparel professionals responsible for IT decisions, so the companies that feature in the results are those that also have a happy and engaged customer base. Vendors were rated on a combination of customer satisfaction and breadth and scope of apparel solutions and business
As for the results, the No 1 software vendor is AS/AP Apparel Software, which received the highest total overall Scorecard points, as well as the highest customer satisfaction score. Rounding out the top 10 on the Scorecard, in order, are: SAP America; CommercialWare; Blue Fox Porini/NedGraphics; Celerant Technology; New Generation Computing Inc; GCS Software LLC; TukaTech Inc; Oracle; and Apparel Business Systems LLC.

To see who rated highest in other categories such as Apparel Knowledge, ROI, Ease of Installation and Quality of Service, you’ll have to download the free report, which is published by US-based Apparel Magazine. It only takes a couple of seconds to register, and I’m sure you’ll find it’s worth it.
