Bamboo Rose has made its entire product suite available for mobile devices including Marketplace, PLM, Sourcing, Order Management and Global Trade Management.

The new mobile platform has already been rolled out to several customers, including Kohl's and Urban Outfitters, helping them to move seamlessly from inspiration to wish lists to PLM, shopping trips to showrooms within the same application.

They can approve samples, capture ideas, collaborate during fitting sessions and evaluate trade scenarios in real time from the field using any iOS or Android tablet, the company says.

"By allowing our customers to go mobile as they design, develop and deliver products, retailers, brands and suppliers will be able to be in constant communication using one platform – even when members are in the field," explains CEO Sue Welch.

In contrast to other 'mobile' offerings, which she says are "just a series of standalone, disconnected apps, all of which need to be manually downloaded and periodically updated," the new platform offers "all of the power and functionality you'd get in the desktop version – no compromises."

Welch adds: "Retailers today need to shop, communicate and collaborate at consumer speed, and that means functioning the same way their customers do. How do customers shop? On mobile. We're powering the tech revolution for brands with the first fully mobile solution."

With the launch of its mobile solution, Bamboo Rose is making its entire platform – including all future updates – automatically available to customers, without any manual app downloads required.
