Lawson Software has announced a new software deal with fashion manufacturer Alternative Apparel.

The two parties signed a contract to implement Lawson QuickStep Fashion, including Lawson e-Sales and Lawson Business Intelligence.

A statement said Alternative Apparel's current software could no longer support new value-adding business processes, such as flexible inventory allocation.

"We needed to find a standard, industry-tailored solution along with people with fashion industry expertise to implement it," said Evan Toporek, president and COO for Alternative Apparel.
