BERKHAMSTED, England, June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- CIMS V7.6 Delivers 80 New Enhancements to Prologic's Integrated System for the Fashion & Lifestyle Sector

Fashion business systems provider, Prologic, has announced the latest release of CIMS, the integrated-channel software for fashion & lifestyle companies. CIMS V7.6 includes over 80 new enhancements to the core CIMS system. Examples of important new capabilities include:

- Major extensions to CIMS channel capabilities with new sub-channel structures - Channel calculations and prioritisation down to warehouse bin level - New SOA/XML infrastructure to deliver modular business services - Transparent stock visibility at unit, pack, carton and pallet level - Extensions to CIMS Cube reporting to deliver world class data aggregation

Early adopters of CIMS V7.6 include Ted Baker, Paul Smith and Turner Bianca.

Sam Jackson, Chief Executive of Prologic, says, "CIMS is specifically designed to help fashion & lifestyle companies adapt quickly and cost effectively to new business opportunities, whilst maintaining strong control over processes and operations. With CIMS V7.6 we are releasing over 80 new enhancements, all of which are relevant to the fashion sector."

Commenting on the benefits of using a single version, single database product such as Prologic CIMS, Jackson explains, "The implementation of centralised information systems and integrated business processes has helped many of our customers to be more successful and to leap ahead of their peers. Whether you retail through your own stores, franchise, wholesale, or sell through mail order or the web, CIMS can manage every aspect of your business operation, from merchandise planning, through supply chain management to the point of sale and the consumer website. All delivered as a single integrated whole."

The Prologic CIMS model is based on responsive and continuous improvement to a single version, single database product. Because all Prologic customers operate within the fashion & lifestyle sector, functional improvements are of value to most customers. This means that the rate of functionality enhancement is far greater than could be achieved by each customer making their own bespoke improvements. The model also means that customers benefit from the stability, low cost and robustness associated with a single version software product.
