Anyone who works in the apparel industry with clothing, shoes, uniforms, sporting goods and similar products knows the inherent complication of dealing with apparel inventory and large numbers of products that are similar yet need to be tracked separately.
One style, in 5 colors and 8 sizes, generates 40 discrete products for inventory tracking purposes. The ability to manage this inventory effectively saves time, cuts cost and increases opportunities to generate more sales.
Blue Link’s unique, purpose-built apparel matrix and inventory software automates and streamlines the management of products and orders by providing tools that allow you to enter orders and quotes the way your customers give them to you, using the matrix. Our easy-to-use product matrix simplifies the creation of product SKUs and provides ultimate flexibility for entering orders and quotes. With Blue Link, you also always have the option of switching back and forth between the grid and traditional order entry modes.
Blue Link’s software also includes functionality to track dye lots.
