One of Albertina Bay’s core products is a business software solution focused on clothing, footwear, sportswear, safety wear, and school wear. It is marketed under the brand Softwear for Fashion
The solution is distinct because colour, size, prepack, variable packs, brands, gender and multiple user defined classifications are imbedded within the application – within a relational structure and not a bolt-on matrix structure.
Softwear for Fashion focuses on manufacturing, wholesale and distribution, and retail and chain distribution. The application is seamless across wholesale, retail and manufacturing and can be configured in any combination.
Wholesale includes every aspect of managing agents, their customers and the current and forward order books, and optimizing purchasing to match these.
The application embraces MRP and ERP with warehouse stock and distribution management. Manufacturing includes all the functionality found in wholesale plus a comprehensive bill of materials (style file) with production control and tracking, with performance metrics.
Retail provides integrated, multifunctional point of sale (POS) software with automated synchronization, between head office and store and between stores. Automated of-site point-of-sale backup in standard.
Head office software is scalable to manage Retail Chains. The Retail Chain solution includes budgeting, purchasing, merchandising, distribution, loyalty, campaign management, store KPI’s, store and staff management, chain inventory control and management, laybuy management, chain distribution and stock-in- transit management.
