New FashionManager Updates Streamline Sales, Order Management and Analytics

Lyndhurst, NJ, May 28, 2014 --(PR.com)-- RLM Apparel Software Systems Inc. (www.ronlynn.com), solutions provider to the fashion industry’s biggest and brightest brands, has added important new wholesale order management, sales reporting and other time- and cost-saving capabilities to its industry-leading FashionManager™ enterprise software solution. A result of the company’s commitment to continuous improvement, these new and extended capabilities promise to streamline and improve the showroom, production and financial processes of apparel, footwear, accessories and related brands and retailers.

“We are excited to bring this advanced set of features to our FashionManager clients,” explained RLM Partner Andy Lynn. “These new and expanded capabilities will enable our clients to simplify the showroom sales process, tie production orders closer to demand, and gain greater visibility and insight into the entire process. This release is a perfect example of our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of our industry.”

Examples of the new and extended sales, order management and analytics features built into the latest edition of FashionManager include:

Automatic Credit Card Authorization and Capture for Wholesale Orders:
To streamline the wholesale order process, FashionManager is now fully integrated with the Authorize.Net® credit card payment gateway. This partnership ensures retail buyers secure, fast and reliable goods and shipping payment transactions.

iPad® and Tablet Ready Showroom Tools:
To empower more efficient showroom management, FashionManager delivers new and enhanced order management capabilities that include tools for downloading order selection and uploading sales orders to Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets.

Sales Reporting and Analytics:
A wide range of new reports have been added to FashionManager to improve the visibility and insight into sales performance and analyze operational response. Time Phased Cut and Sold reporting helps forecast potential oversold positions. The new Monthly Sales Analysis reports year to date sales by customer compared to the same period in the prior year. Reporting of Season vs. Season results by category and product type has also been improved.

Automated, Demand Driven Production Orders:
To better align production orders with demand, a new Cut to Demand capability streamlines the issue of finished goods orders to production based on sales order bookings. After selecting relevant styles and colors, users can easily adjust for any open production or current stock levels and generate a production order to meet actual demand.

Customizable Columns and Rows within Financial Statements (coming soon):
RLM is also readying the release of a new Financial Report Writer that will empower clients to customize financial statements for their unique needs through user-defined column headings, selection of values from a variety of system financial views, custom calculations of data, and other flexible and advanced capabilities.

ACH Wire Payments (coming soon):
FashionManager will also streamline the wire payment process by storing bank instructions and directly communicating payment from the Accounts Payable application; eliminating the need to recreate the payment on the bank website.

FashionManager clients are encouraged to contact their RLM customer service representative with any questions regarding the new release and features.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
