Apparel and footwear is a demanding business. Companies must contend with the "usual suspects" in the global business environment: relentless pressureon price, cost, and lead time. They also face special challenges in this distinct marketplace: seasonal fluctuation, proliferation of design variations and product characteristics, multiple distribution channels and customer-service requirements, and heavy reliance on outsource manufacturing.
SAP Apparel and Footwear, a component of SAP Consumer Products, is uniquely designed to address these industry-specific requirements and overall business drivers. SAP AFS provides functionality targeted directly at apparel, footwear, and home furnishings, including style, color, size, and width, product allocation, and contract manufacturing. It integrates this functionality within a comprehensive, best-practices solution that accommodates the entire scope of corporate business processes – from order through cash settlement – to enable a more effective operation.
