Make to Order
Can your field reps entertain new designs and customize styles? ApparelAD’s Make to Order (MTO) capability allows for new designs to be easily created and accurately costed. ApparelAD MTO is intended for brands to manage the creative process; supporting customized sample orders and standardized manufacturing software processes.
Creating New Sample Designs
New samples items are easily designed, costed and produced by leveraging PDM constructions in the system. The ability for field sales reps to articulate and estimate an order is critical to managing seasonal demands. Design templates promote new ideas that maintain the qualities of known styles and the capabilities of production lines.
Processing Sample Orders
Sample orders are a great way for brands to connect with their clients and boost sales with boutiques. Not only does a systematized process make this possible, but it also captures new ideas to entertain changing retail trends. Managers can easily review and approve samples with specific raw material selection and itemized costing. No longer are sample order opportunities limited to only a few senior sales and design employees, but the easy-to-use templates can be edited by the whole sales organization. While customers are having a customized experience, your brand is processing invaluable feedback that defines future collections.
Generating New Collections
Successful sample orders are known to become new brand collections. ApparelAD MTO easily creates SKUs batched by size run and color grids. In this way new collections are managed to optimize raw material purchases, reuse proven production processes and can be further marketed to new sales channels. Our design creation approach allows new styles to originate in the showroom and maintain a sample ID to revisit for future development. Not only can your brand entertain new ideas, but it can easily resurface them in future seasons.
Integrated Production Processes
Bill of materials (BoMs) and production orders are generated once a sample is approved for full sales orders. The solution understands your factory’s production processes and automates a tech pack and work orders for shop floor distribution.
