BOM & Purchasing /

Collaborative product development tools from Quote to Order

Well-made products are documented with well-made bill of materials (BOM).


Apparel Connect 'Intelli BOM' improves your accuracy and efficiency by integrating Purchasing, Stores and Cut Room modules.

Cut plans from your order markers will automatically update your fabric BOM giving you extremely accurate consumptions

Merchandisers can automatically allocate open stock from stores, generate material requisitions and raise purchase to order POs. Both FIFO and Smallest Roll First allocation strategies are supported. Where an order requires more material than is available, Apparel Connect will automatically generate appropriate purchase orders while maintaining the flexibility to adjust quantities, pricing, suppliers, and terms prior to approval and issue.

Apparel Connect BOM supports unlimited units and currencies for costing and for purchasing with automatic conversions including between fabric weight and length.

Multiple PO layouts including colour-grouped for fabrics, multi-order, size-grouped and even colour and size matrix

Multi-Shipment POs allow you to purchase for multiple factories and delivery locations and dates simultaneously.

Automatically generates purchase orders and stock requisitions for single or multiple orders
