Competitive Advantages to Simparel's ERP Software

For businesses in the fashion industry, the ability to respond quickly to shifting consumer preferences and marketplace conditions is a key competitive advantage.

Simparel's leading fashion ERP software enables that important agility. And the benefits of our dedicated industry solution don't stop there. In addition to built-in specialized functionality that is tailored to your industry requirements (e.g., variable SKU length and style grid), our ERP solution incorporates critical technology advantages that allow you to gain control of your fashion-related business operations and data, respond to opportunities, and realize significant results:

A Unified Model

While legacy and best-of-breed solutions typically offer powerful specialized functionality, they often are standalone systems that isolate business processes and data. Simparel fashion ERP software is purpose-built for the specific needs of the fashion industry – and unites all processes on a single, unified platform. The result is a centralized flow of information that enables organization-wide collaboration and essential real-time visibility into inventories, orders, and production processes.

No Hard-Coding

In a hard-coded legacy solution, a change at the programming level – for example, adding a button – can be time-consuming and prone to error because the change must be coded, compiled, and implemented manually – in every place the system will call on that change. The Simparel ERP fashion solution, in contrast, is metadata-driven. A change is made – one time – to a table, then permeated automatically throughout the system. The Simparel metadata-driven model accelerates solution development and enables customization and changes to be implemented quickly, with fewer errors and less cost, increasing your return on investment.

Designed as an Open System

Legacy and best-of-breed solutions with distinct capabilities often operate as separate, unconnected systems. As a result, their processes and data are isolated, making access and interaction cumbersome. Simparel is an open system, strategically designed to interact with its environment. Simparel's interoperability enables you to import information easily from external sources, and export – from almost anywhere in the system – to tools such as Microsoft Excel for further analysis, reporting, decision-making, and other uses.

Simplified Collaboration

Finding ways for legacy systems to collaborate with newer technology is not easy. The Simparel ERP fashion solution not only unites all fashion-related processes and data to provide an important, singular view of critical information such as inventories, orders, customer data, and production. Simparel also provides the tools you need to communicate – online and in real-time – with other departments, with your customers, and with vendors.

Enabling Opportunity – From Concept to Consumer

The technology innovations that we've built into the Simparel ERP fashion software solution empower you to anticipate and react to rapidly changing market conditions and consumer demands. The bottom line? Simparel enables you to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves – from design to distribution
