ApparelX Product Development Management (PDM) 

ApparelX Product Development Management (PDM) is a web based software application that allows textile, apparel and footwear companies to manage the development process from concept through to design, minimising development time and allowing the delivery of goods at the right cost and the right time, every time.

With an easy to use menu system and intuitive user interface, this flexible application assists with design management and pre-production using, for example, work flow tools, costing templates and trim libraries.

ApparelX PDM allows design teams and product suppliers to access up-to-date information at any time and anywhere, enhancing collaboration and reducing the potential for errors.

Key differentiators include:

  • Instant / enhanced access to product information – collaborate with product teams and suppliers word-wide without the need for emails and spreadsheets. Your team can access vital information from one centralised, web based database.

  • Controlled development costs – use the 'what if' analysis function to calculate how choice of materials and suppliers will affect the cost of a garment/item being engineered to a certain price point and 'where used' reports to show the impact a discontinued or late supply of a material will have on the cost of producing an item.

  • Reduced time to market – assign tasks efficiently and monitor potential bottlenecks with critical path functionality to reduce delays.

  • Development and supply chain visibility – track multiple revisions with automatic audit trails of changes to style records and use flexible reporting tools for supply chain visibility.

  • Informed / ethical sourcing – meet the challenges of responsible sourcing using preferred supplier lists to select suitable suppliers and products during the design stage.

ApparelX Web Wardrobe service to win more contracts

Syscom PLC has announced the release of their latest web-based order management module, Web Wardrobe, designed to help, workwear, corporate wear and personal protective equipment (PPE) companies win business. The module is a web hosted service that will enable suppliers in these markets to create a web portal in minutes, offering their customers a dedicated website where employees can place orders for garments, check stock availability, track orders, make returns and amend their details online.

Enable corporate wear suppliers to:

  • Offer enhanced customer service

  • Differentiate themselves from the competition during the tendering process to win more contracts

  • Set up dedicated branded customer websites quickly and easily

  • Streamline the sales order process and reduce administrative costs

  • Maximise sales opportunities with a 24/7 presence

A web portal in minutes

Of course creating a dedicated customer website can be a time-consuming and costly process. However, with Web Wardrobe it only takes suppliers a few minutes to set up customer websites, with no need to hire a web developer. The application is template driven, allowing users to define website characteristics, such as text font and size, background colour, images etc quickly and easily. 

The competitive edge

As well as allowing corporate wear suppliers to compete for contracts that require this facility, the module will help companies to distinguish themselves from the competition.

Web Wardrobe offers corporate wear customers control over employee uniform ordering from a full kit of garments to single items and provides detailed order tracking and reporting on orders, returns and employee use. 

Leaner operations

As well as taking the headache out of uniform purchasing for customers, Web Wardrobe can help suppliers streamline the sales order process. The integration of Web Wardrobe with ApparelX facilitates the automatic generation of picking lists and stock allocation each time a customer places an order, with different replenishment rules catered for according to company practices.
