Wilkinson, a UK-based high street retailer, has selected merchandise lifecycle management software provider TradeStone to reduce time to market and enhance the company’s private label brands.
Wilkinson purchased the complete Merchandise Lifecycle Management suite, and plans to triple imports and customer choice. The system will provide the retailer with a supplier management capability, ensuring quality, compliance and delivery requirements are monitored using a single source of data.
Phil Barnes, commercial planning manager of Wilkinson, said: TradeStone was the only company that offered a full suite that brought together PLM for Retail, Global Sourcing, Global Order Management, Quality Management and Supplier Management, to enable us to give our customers a wider selection of products at the great value they have to come to expect.
Sue Welch, CEO of TradeStone Software, said: We are impressed with Wilkinson’s drive to capitalize on current market conditions and reinvent themselves as a retail leader that uses technology as a strategy to support innovation and growth. They are expecting radical results and that is what we will deliver.
