CARDIFF, January 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Following on from their successful implementation of DeSL's PLM solution,
Men's Wearhouse are now embarking on a Phase 2 project to implement DeSL's
full supply chain solution.

Men's Wearhouse was founded in 1973 and has grown to have 1,239 stores
offering a full selection of designer, brand name and private label suits,
sport coats, furnishing and accessories. Additionally, the company operates a
global corporate apparel and workwear group consisting of TwinHill in USA and
Dimensions and Alexandra in UK. Group annual sales revenues are in the region
of $2.3 Billion

Will Silveria, Executive Vice President , Men's Wearhouse states, "Now that we
have implemented DeSL's PLM solution we have full control of our product
development, are sharing on-line tech packs with our vendors along with time
and action calendars and collaborative costing, the natural extension was to
go to full supply chain management. This will involve creating and tracking
purchase orders for fabrics, trims and finished products to deliver real time,
global WIP tracking. Our vendors (factories and mills) will be receiving
on-line purchase orders andupdating progress in real time. Factories will
receive fabric from the mills and issue materials to production. At any time
we will know exactly what has been cut, what's in progress and what
fabrics/trims are still in inventory - all at colour and size level. This will
enable us to make more informed decisions and react faster to consumer
demand."

Colin Marks, DeSL CEO states, "We've successfully implemented our PLM solution
into one of the USA's largest retailers and it is a sign of their confidence
in us that we have now moved to Phase 2. The PLM project has delivered the
platform to enable Men's Wearhouse to essentially implement a global, real
time, web based collaborative network. This incorporates internal teams,
factories and mills covering all processes from initial product design right
through to quality management and delivery of the finished products into their
distribution centres. There are few solutions available today which can
deliver this level of functionality and the degree of control required by
Men's Wearhouse."
