Fashion management software: itSuitsFashion ERP

itSuitsFashion ERP is a solution specifically for wholesalers in the fashion industry, based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Below we provide an overview of the standard features and add-ons available for itSuitsFashion ERP.

3PL is the 3rd Party Logistics module. This module enables communication of the receipts and pick tickets with logistic service providers. The entire communication flow can be registered and monitored.

Boxes logistics
Improve the efficiency in your logistic processes by defining carton contents as early as possible and moving boxes from that moment on, instead of individual items.

The Commission Module makes it possible to define different commission agreement on season, brand, item category, product group and order type. One can also define where the calculation of the commission should be based on, like e.g. the invoice, after the first payment, ratio payment or completely paid. After calculation of the commission, an invoice will be created and the sales person or agent can be paid.

Communication Centre
The communication center is the tool in itSuitsFashion that handles large data exchanges and is used to communicate with external applications, like e-commerce, EDI or 3rd Party Logistics solutions.

Extended Calculation
Very complicated calculations can be defined with the Extended Calculation module. One can define calculation templates which can be used as a base for your calculation. With the Extended Calculation module you can post multiple cost coverage. You can define to which G/L account the item charges of a style need to be posted. You have the option of defining default item charges on vendors and customers (item charges for customers is used in the private label industry). The item charges are posted when the PO received is posted. The view of the calculation template and the end-user view is different. In the end-user view, some columns will not be visible and lines will act as dropdown lines. The user will not see all lines to keep the solution simple.

Factoring is a method used by soma firms to obtain cash. The Factoring Module supports the outsourcing of receivables in order to finance outstanding sales invoices.

itSuitsFashion Standard
itSuitsFashion standard is the wholesale module. Styles (with color and sizes in a matrix), Customers and Vendors can be defined. Register Sales order (after this abbreviated to SO’s) and Purchase orders (after this abbreviated to PO’s). ISF can calculate the required style quantity based on the sales order, including a forecast %, taking into account inventory, minimum order qty and -for NOOS Styles- reorder points. Inbound warehouse planning to receive PO’s, Outbound warehouse planning to ship SO’s. This module includes extra fashion functionalities like replacements of styles in sales orders, collect PO’s in a transport to monitor the ETD and ETA, link PO’s and SO’s in transport dashboard to monitor if shipments are in time to deliver and to handle under and over delivery in the warehouse.

itSuitsFashion Private Label
itSuitsFashion Private Label is used for special custom made collections for retailers or brand owners. The way a private label company works is significantly different than a wholesale company, because everything is based on the style or contract with the customers of the private label company. Based on this style or contract, the sales- and purchase order are made, the production is done and the delivery to the customer takes place. The dashboard keeps all documents and entities which are linked to the contract together and ensures that no unnecessary delays occur in the process.

In the PDM/CMT module, additional product information like washing instructions can be defined. It is also possible to define a Bill of Material (BOM) and size specifications. Optionally, one can define trimming packages in the BOM, to make BOM entry easier. Based on the Ready Made Garment (RMG) quantity in the sales order or purchase order, the required raw materials can be calculated. When the raw materials are receive in the own warehouse, a transfer order can be generated based on a PO of the RMG to be send to the production side. When the RMG is received back in the warehouse you are able to deduct the inventory of the raw material in the usage journal base on the usage in the BOM and the quantity received of the RMG.
