Bill Levkoff Selects CGS BlueCherry® ERP to Support its Unique Bridesmaid Dress Business Requirements

BlueCherry ERP and B2B will streamline and automate operations 

New York, NY – September 8, 2016 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced that Bill Levkoff, a distributor of bridesmaid and formal dresses, selected BlueCherry® Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and BlueCherry B2B eCommerce. Bill Levkoff will benefit from the front-end order entry option to help simplify customer product choices and provide visibility while tracking its sample distribution to various store types.

Bill Levkoff offers its bridesmaids dresses to over 1,500 retailers in the United States and Canada; and offers these dresses in multiple styles, in addition to fabrics, lengths and colors within each style. Providing the customer with customizable choices differentiates Bill Levkoff from its competition, providing a strategic advantage.    

To improve its visibility and distribution operations, Bill Levkoff was seeking a solution that provides real-time enterprise-wide visibility to replace its homegrown, in-house application, enabling easy order entry for its retail partners. Bill Levkoff selected BlueCherry ERP because of its capability to connect core business functions through an integrated supported platform and provide real-time visibility into the product lifecycle throughout the supply chain.

“Although our legacy system got us to where we are today, it was apparent that we needed to have a fully supported software solution that could be perpetually upgraded to allow for streamlined, automated processes to grow the business,” said Joe Pezzola, Information Systems Director at Bill Levkoff. “CGS understands our business needs, as well as our customers’ expectations. They showed us what they do for others in the apparel industry and we knew they were the perfect partner to go with.”

“We understand the unique challenge Bill Levkoff faces in providing customized dresses in a range of styles to a long list of retailers,” said Paul Magel, president, Business Applications and Technology Outsourcing Division, CGS. “One of the most important elements of a successful distributor is fulfilling orders to the retailer in a timely manner. We are excited to welcome Bill Levkoff to our BlueCherry community and help the company streamline processes by providing a single source of critical data, arming its team with a clear view of sample and customer order status while enabling easy order entry for retailers through BlueCherry B2B.”
