Designed from the ground up to meet the unique needs of the fashion industry, STEALTH 3000 balances brand autonomy within a common framework and adapts to the changing needs of a business. Unlike point solutions or industry adaptations of general purpose ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) packages, the flexibility of STEALTH allows customers to avoid compromising how they operate by meeting the unique and varied needs of the fashion enterprise, CSC reports.
In the current U.S. consumer spending environment, the U.S. fashion industry is placing a priority on inventory efficiency, reflected by their information-technology investment plans. According to a recent Apparel magazine thought-leadership report on IT and software trends, 44 percent of readers said that "merchandising, planning and allocation" ranked at the top of their IT priorities for 2009-10. Success in the current consumer spending environment requires optimal planning and allocation of fashion merchandising lines.
Building on specific fashion industry business processes harnessed from working with 120 active STEALTH clients, CSC reports, fashion companies using STEALTH will benefit from:
*Complete integration among processes -- from customer order management to production and shipment
