Ed Hardy Australia, a high end, vintage tattoo clothing line, has selected Island Pacific Planning along with the QQQ Systems retail software solution for its Australian and United Kingdom stores.

QQQ Systems' retail management and point of sale (POS) solution will support Ed Hardy Australia by offering greater detail on stock accuracy, availability and replenishment. It will also provide efficient communication between the warehouse and stores.

The software will also manage stock movement, performance monitoring, cost control, point of sale operations and improved CRM.

In parallel with the installation, Ed Hardy Australia will also implement the Island Pacific Planning solution, which will help the retailer to manage its operations and fulfil consumer demand.

These operations include point-of-sale, customer relationship management, vendor relationship management, merchandising, demand forecasting, planning, replenishment, allocation, and event planning.

The total system will be rolled out to all company stores over the balance of 2009 and into 2010.

Ed Hardy currently has 14 stores in Australia, with a further 4 stores opening in late 2009, including a flagship store in the United Kingdom.
