Genesco speaks at PI Apparel NYC about a PLIM!?!

Johnston & Murphy is just one of the Genesco brands that uses a DeSL PIM + PLM for footwear and apparel development

Genesco really just wanted correct data – one point of entry for a validated single version of the truth to manage their ever increasing number of products, SKU’s, vendors and sales channels. With growing multi-brand requirements for both footwear and apparel, managing and validating their sales and marketing assets became one of the company’s largest hurdles. Excel spreadsheets weren’t cutting it anymore, but a hefty system with all the bells and whistles was overkill. The answer? Start with DeSL’s PIM and slowly add in key aspects of the DeSL PLM, creating a right-sized new hybrid known fondly as a PLIM.

Will you be at PI NYC this year? Be sure to catch the full story.

Hear  ”Start Small & Scale Up” at PI NYC – June 22 @ 1:35 in The Library (2F)

In a DeSL sponsored session at PI Apparel NYC, Alex Carpenter, Senior Business Analyst at Genesco, will present how the company adopted a single system for footwear and apparel that not only prepared product information and sales assets to seamlessly integrate with third parties and provide a one stop multi-channel hub, but also enabled users to deploy key PLM processes to gain even more value.

Discussion includes:

  • Challenges and successes in launching multiple wholesale/retail footwear/apparel brands in a “PLM Lite” environment
  • Empowering designers to move from idea to sketch to bill of materials in a seamless workflow
  • Leveraging custom reporting to replace manual and legacy line sheets and product data sheets
  • Using PIM and modern tools to simplify data collection and create “one version of the truth”

Genesco sells footwear, headwear, and sports apparel through more than 2,775 shoe and cap stores globally. Their operations include Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, Lids Sports division and Schuh, as well as sales of licensed brands such as Dockers and G.H. Bass footwear.
