CARDIFF, United Kingdom, December 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

DeSL announces that elope Inc, a Colorado based wholesale company specializing
in high quality whimsical wearables, has gone live with DeSL's PLM solution
and is already realizing significant benefits from its recent implementation.

elope was established in 1993 by founders Kevin and Keith Johnson. The company
has always been on the cutting edge of innovation and in 2001 expanded into
new factory facility in China with a key focus on socially responsible
business practices and dedication to fair trade. In 2012, elope embarked on a
PLM project to help support the continued growth of the company and selected
DeSL following a comprehensive vendor evaluation process.

Carolye Asfahl, COO, elope commented, "elope is already seeing major
improvements from our DeSL implementation. We wanted one system visible to all
departments, including our production team overseas, to increase our work
efficiency and information consistency. A positive outcome I did not expect
was how quickly our overseas teams are adopting the system." Carolye
continued, "PLM is especially helping with our sample management process which
previously required many people and different spreadsheets. There were many
opportunities to miscommunicate and confuse the situation on samples. Now,
with DeSL's PLM module, we are seeing huge improvements, no confusing
spreadsheets, and our overseas team is even driving us to be better users of
the system."

Marc Friedman, VP North America commented, "Following their competitive vendor
selection process, we were absolutely delighted that elope selected DeSL .
Since then we've been able to develop a real partnership with the elope team,
which has resulted in a highly successful 'go-live'. As Carolye herself
stated, the DeSL PLM solution has already delivered immediate benefits and
improvements for the company and they are now in the process of implementing
our SRM solution which will cover their entire purchase order management
processes, including capacity management and product tracking down to
individual SKU level. Another key deliverable from the SRM project will be
vendor compliance management."

Fashion, Apparel, Textile and Footwear sectors. The company can already count
leading global brands as customers including Calvin Klein, VF Corporation,
Men's Wearhouse, Bravissimo, Nautica, GRI Group plus many more.
