Behind every piece of apparel that fascinates the end customer, a massive web of raw material providers, fabric designers, cloth manufacturers, warehouses, e-commerce solution providers, retailers, and logistics providers works relentlessly to put that piece of cloth in the shop. To simplify this process and transform the way a fashion business is managed in the present day digital landscape, AIMS360, which was founded in 1985, has been effectively addressing the disparate processes and ever-growing requirements of manufacturers, distributors, and importers in the fashion space.
“We recognize inventory management as one of the most important aspects of the industry and our ERP solution imparts complete visibility into the clients’ entire inventory tracking, order management, and associated activities,” states Shahrooz Kohan, COO of AIMS360. The company’s ERP software not only places all incoming orders from multiple sources together but also assists in inventory control from shipping to final delivery, saving both time and cost. Once orders are accepted, customers are able to monitor their inventory, get real-time information on in-production items, easily confirm how much more needs to be produced, and track the shipping timelines to determine the exact delivery date.
Kohan, upon joining the team, realized that to drive efficiency in the process, the ERP software needs to be constantly updated to streamline the different operational processes and requirements of different business types within the industry. This was of extreme importance since modern consumers needed faster order deliveries.

The industry required a solution that could work with the likes of both fashion designers and retailers. Hence, the platform was opened with many extra features that facilitated multiple integrations such as those with third party software of e-commerce providers, department stores, warehouses, and even sourced factors that provide loans to clients. “We wanted to ensure that we perfectly understand each client’s different processes perfectly and have it streamlined in our software to show their business' progression,” explains Kohan.
AIMS360’s unique selling proposition not only lies in its break-through solution and its team of industry experts, but also in its off-beat approach towards addressing prospective customers’ requirements. The company offers its software package at three levels— beginner’s level for start-ups who are expanding, mid-size companies who need to integrate with third party solutions, and the luxury level for the larger enterprises. The AIMS360 team then drafts a Customer Success Plan (CSP) for the clients, which is followed during the software’s implementation; in order for clients to achieve “control, time efficiency, and confidence while being organized.” This has been highly beneficial to its client base, which is comprised of reputable companies like Nike, ALO Yoga, Revolve, Three Dots, Boys + Arrows, and John Varvatos. Citing the company’s association with one such customer, Kohan talks about a swim wear company, backed by a large brand, which needed a system and support of experienced professionals that would aid them in scaling up operations faster and efficiently. AIMS360’s ERP platform assisted the customer through centrally organizing orders, inventory, and shipping, and automated the operations by integrating with retailers, and warehouses. It also helped in tracking all information along the whole process from the time orders are received from retailers to final delivery.
AIMS360 builds on its three decade long industry experience to craft an ambitious future course. The company has different teams of programmers working on individual roadmaps to roll out continual software updates with increased integration features for customers through the cloud. With such a comprehensive future plan, AIMS360 remains committed to delivering the best customer experience with quality offerings for the fashion industry.
