DeSL’s comprehensive PLM offering expands to include NEW Visual Merchandising Planning Solution

Cardiff, United Kingdom  (September, 30th 2015) Discover e-Solutions Ltd (DeSL), a leading provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions for retail, apparel, footwear and luxury consumer goods is pleased to announce the availability of their Visual Merchandising Planning module, a new solution specifically designed for range planning, merchandising and buying roles.

Realistic range planning for a particular market or product has become a difficult task in today’s consumer led environment. Market competition has increased, consumers want more product variety, and their needs from a product have become complex and various.

Range planning, from setting the concept, purpose and direction through to selecting the products and finalising the price, distribution and sales forecast, is a truly iterative process that typically involves buying and merchandising working hand in hand, often with somewhat opposing objectives.

DeSL’s Visual Merchandising planning solution makes fact-based product-driven business planning a reality. Dynamically linked to the line and production planning, this new module provides the ability to visually display the product range, slicing and dicing your product to spot gaps instantly from early product planning to the final development of the product.

Speaking about the announcement, DeSL’s Managing Director, Colin Marks, says, “We’re the first company to deliver this type of planning and execution software for the fashion sector and are leading the way in real time, web based, collaborative 360 degree merchandising and assortment management. Being able to take a design directly from Adobe Illustrator, nominate it as a candidate for a slot, allocate any required actions, check its projected and actual costs, assign to a supplier and check capacity for delivery is a totally new paradigm which is unmatched.

End user power is essential for this concept and decisions like ‘is my colour mix correct’, ‘what’s my fabric commitment by composition and mill’, ‘are my deliveries balanced’, ‘have I got my price points correct by silhouette’ and ‘are my margins to plan’ are all available at a touch of a button – and all end user defined!”
