  • Supports Popular 3PL's that serve the fashion industry such as Blechman, Port Logistics, etc.

Helping fashion work

Vantage Point addresses these scenarios and thereby removes the burden from the ERP and supporting systems to handle the nuances of different partners including suppliers, customers, aggregators and third party public warehouses.

Vantage Point understands the ERP’s view of the world and helps resolve partner requirements and limitations without ERP customization. It streamlines advanced challenges such as resolution of Bill of Material (BOM) data in the ERP to implode/explode assortment relationships to internal sku’s and vice-a-versa.

Scalability is critical as fashion product variants can generate thousands and even millions of unique color, style, size combinations that can cripple systems that do not scale well.

Best of all, Vantage Point comes with implementation support by industry experts that understand fashion, ERP solutions and the logistical challenges of sourcing, transporting, warehousing and distribution of goods in complex omni-channel environments.
