New Solution For Retail Apparel And Accessories Companies Released
Apr 03, 2018

Apparel and accessory retailers can now accelerate time to value, streamline their operations and meet the ever-changing expectations of shoppers with an omnichannel customer experience. NetSuite Inc., a provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, has released NetSuite Retail Apparel Edition– created to address the growing challenges of apparel and accessory retailers. The new solution adds features and functionality designed specifically for retailers and is further enhanced by complimentary partner technologies.


Luxury accessories brand Hammitt replaced several on-premise systems with NetSuite to get a unified, operational foundation for its business. Hammitt currently relies on NetSuite for financials, inventory management, manufacturing, fulfillment, reporting, demand planning and reverse logistics. Unlike other companies that rely on legacy systems and commit to an entire season's order four to six months in advance, NetSuite's order management and forecasting capabilities enable Hammitt to replenish inventory with as little as three weeks lead time. Hammitt experiences more inventory turns per year than competitors, making more efficient use of capital and reducing its amount of unsold product.


NetSuite’s end-to-end solution provides the real-time visibility, reporting and planning capabilities needed to redefine our business and our industry,” Hammitt CEO, Tony Drockton said. “With NetSuite’s Retail Apparel Edition we can accelerate innovation, expand our footprint and better serve our customers.”


The NetSuite Retail Apparel Edition builds on the functionality already in NetSuite’s core platform with industry-specific features, including:
