Lawson Software adds Lawson Supplier Portal to their fashion-specific software applications.
Lawson M3 Supplier Portal is a new web-based application that helps fashion companies collaborate better with their suppliers when purchasing goods.
Created for fashion sourcing companies as well as fashion manufacturers, Lawson M3 Supplier Portal was designed to provide rapid deployment, simpler use and rapid return on investment.
Getting started on the new fashion software application is easy since it is web-based and does not require onsite installation.
Based on Lawson’s ‘simpler is better’ concept, the new software solution contains the key functionality that supplying companies need, managed through an intuitive user interface.
Key features of Lawson M3 Supplier Portal
- Offers online access to key information including order tracking and delivery data
- Helps improve collaboration between a fashion company and its suppliers because both sides of a transaction can view and update the same data
- Collaboration feature helps eliminate time lags, duplicate work and risk of errors
- Helps reduce manual activities and streamline processes by creating automatic confirmation of order quantities, dates and prices
- Creates delivery notes to help reduce manual processes such as faxing, emailing and managing multiple spreadsheets
Lawson M3 Supplier Portal offers a cost-effective alternative to other electronic data interchange (EDI) offerings for fashion companies.
The application can be deployed in a matter of days and individual suppliers can be brought online with relative ease at a low cost. This also helps keep costs down for smaller suppliers using the system.
Since fashion companies use a large number of suppliers, Lawson Supplier Portal can help improve efficiency by promoting greater collaboration between the fashion company and its network of suppliers.
Frédéric Champalbert, General Manager, Fashion for Lawson says that Lawson Supplier Portal offers exciting new possibilities for meaningful improvements in efficiency and data accuracy.
He adds that Supplier Portal works directly with the full Lawson for Fashion business software system, helping to reduce the cost of deployment and long-term cost of ownership.
Lawson M3 Supplier Portal is available on cost-per-user license with no additional charge for individual transactions.
