RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc has enhanced its FashionManager solution with a number of new PLM/ERP tools aimed at increasing productivity and streamlining the fashion product lifecycle.

The new capabilities are available in both on-premise and cloud-based platforms, and are designed to help apparel and footwear companies achieve faster, more competitive operations across processes such as product development, sourcing, warehousing and distribution and customer service. 

Improvements include a new Sample Management tool that lets product development teams track the complete history of sample fit specifications, submissions, changes, and vendor compliance. 

New Import Cost Management capabilities allow companies to allocate freight and duty costs according to the volume required for each carton within a container to provide accurate import cost management.

And for styles that repeat from one season to the next, Rollover Inventory Management automatically moves inventory levels to the new season while maintaining the current season inventory to fulfil open bookings. Sales and customer service teams can also manage oversold styles and orders using the Oversold Order Management tool.
