With 100 stores worldwide, REISS is a unique concept fashion retailer which focuses on producing directional design-led menswear, womenswear and accessories.
REISS prides itself on an uncompromising commitment to delivering innovative and original products and combining exceptional design with quality and value.
REISS was established in 1971 selling quality men’s tailoring before introducing womenswear in 2000. REISS’s truly iconic flagship store and headquarters opened in London in 2007; the site that once housed the London College of Fashion.
As a successful and growing business, REISS needed to improve in the following areas:
- difficulties coordinating new style development critical path for multiple departments and product categories
- tracking purchase orders across a wide range of suppliers to ensure effective availability of product to store
- managing reduced lead times, as the pressure for faster product availability and replenishment increases
- a lack of management level visibility
The VisionPLM critical path management solution was implemented quickly and effectively, albeit further developments were then made over the following year to meet the specific needs of the REISS business.
Steven Downes, Finance Director at REISS commented, “Fast React Systems (now Coats Digital) has been a strategic partner since 2007. We began by implementing VisionPLM to support our new style development and purchase order tracking requirements.”
“With a strong background in fashion, they (FRS) have clearly understood our business needs and delivered a highly effective solution to meet those needs.”
Following the successful implementation of the VisionPLM solution for critical path management, REISS is now in the process of implementing the very latest version, which includes full ‘Range Planning’. This will provide a single, highly visual and centralised system to streamline the entire range selection and buying process, in addition to the existing new style development and purchase order tracking.
“Based on the success of the initial project, Fast React (now Coats Digital) are the natural partner to now help REISS improve our range selection and buying processes, all vital activities in our plans for moving the REISS business forward. With a strong background in fashion, Fast React were the natural partner to help REISS.Steven Downes, Finance Director
