Collection Planning made easier with the release of ax|is fashion V3
K3 Software Solutions is pleased to announce the new release of ax|is fashion V3, the seamless solution that has been fully embedded in Microsoft Dynamics, offering fashion and apparel enterprises the benefits of a concept-to-consumer solution that is literally made to measure, ready to wear.
This flexible and scalable solution offers fashion and apparel enterprises a tailored environment in which to gain insight and control over all processes and channels to market. The customized tools, pre-configured to align to specific fashion tasks and processes, drive agility and productivity. The out-of-the-box fashion functionality means little to no need for extensive back-end configuration, resulting in a shorter implementation cycle and quicker ROI.
In 2013, building on their extensive fashion experience, K3 took the first steps to build a solution able to meet the often unique and exacting needs of the enterprise fashion and apparel market. Since then, thanks to a clear vision on development, a robust partner network and input from customers such as Jeanswest, Charles Tyrwhitt, Ted Baker, Roberto Verino and Seasalt, K3 have now further enhanced ax|is fashion V3 to offer the possibility to:
Manage your collection planning: to create a collection, define the price ranges for that collection and the amount of products which need to form part of it. It also allows the user to keep track of the realization of the collection plan, through time.
Maintain inventory balancing: this functionality provides the possibility to quickly create the inventory transfer orders and intercompany sales and purchase orders for multiple stores at the same time, based on what the on hand stock is in the stores and how much you wish to leave there.
Create the inventory recall: it provides the possibility to quickly create the inventory recall transfer orders and intercompany sales and purchase orders for multiple stores at the same time, based on what the on hand stock is in the stores.
Use replenishment plans: the user can easily create item coverage records for a series of stores and products at the same time, based on product categories. This makes the time consuming way of creating records by variant and by warehouse obsolete.
Implement consignment: to automatically import XML sales and transfer request files from consignment partners, and convert them into sales orders and transfer orders.
“Input for the further development of ax|is fashion comes from various sources including the industry experts we have working at K3, our bigger customers and prospects, as well as our partners,” explains Gerdien Cammeraat, Product Manager ax|is fashion, K3 Software Solutions. “With ax|is fashion V3, customers will benefit from Microsoft Dynamics for Retail being further optimized for a seasonal business, something that is at the core of most fashion and apparel companies.
“We are very excited about this new release and the additional functionality it brings to the market,” said Sander Schoneveld, Managing Director, K3 Software Solutions. “In addition to adding new functionality to ax|is fashion, we are looking forward to building on the new features and functionality in Microsoft Dynamics AX7.”
