STYLEman365 represents the fifth generation of our well-regarded STYLEman application software for apparel and footwear businesses. STYLEman365 is available both as an on premise application (hosted on a server at your offices) or as a fully cloud-based solution. In either case it can be accessed from anywhere, naturally subject to appropriate security, a key requirement for today’s “work anywhere” culture.
STYLEman365 retains the business logic and database of the latest version of STYLEman, but changes the user interface to be fully browser-based, to allow cloud implementations. By retaining the business logic, the robustness and proven capability of STYLEman is retained, whilst simplifying the upgrade and training required.
STYLEman365 is a multi-lingual application, and supplied with translation tools for you to translate it into the target languages you need. This facility also allows you to adapt the system’s terminology to match your business, should that terminology vary from industry norms.

At the heart of our product set is STYLEman365 ERP, which manages the sourcing, stock and sales of styles (the blue tiles in the diagram). Around this we have the other members of the STYLEman365 family (the purple tiles) , and around these core modules we have integrated a number of third party products in order to offer a complete, integrated, best-of-breed solution.
STYLEman365 PLM covers the typical functionality required for product development, including Costing, Quotations, Bills of Material and Labour, Lab Testing, Grading and Fit Sessions. At the heart of the collaborative system are Critical Paths to manage the whole process. Once styles are approved, all the details are passed seamlessly to STYLEman365 ERP to manage the commercial activities.
STYLEman365 ERP acts as a PIM (Product Information Master) for all the style information, which can be shared across wholesale, retail and e-commerce systems. The style repository can include:
- Style Master details
- Multiple Style images
- Bill of Materials
- Bill of Labour (operations)
- Purchase Prices
- Selling Prices
- Customer Product references
- Supplier Product references
- Marketing Information

Perpetual Inventory counting is also supported to avoid warehouse downtime for periodic stock counting in the warehouse. All despatches can have a carton-level contents note printed, and the increased accuracy of picking and documented carton contents dramatically reduce reported shortages.

STYLEman365 ERP has a full Raw Materials management module, covering MRP, Purchasing, Stock Control, Issues and Consumption.

Sales Ledger (Accounts Receivable)
STYLEman365 ERP has its own Sales Ledger (Accounts Receivable) to manage customer accounts.

The system is fully multi-currency and has the sophistication to manage both independents and major High Street chains.
