Lawson Software Introduces Cloud-Based Fashion PLM Solution


Lawson Fashion PLM now available via Amazon EC2 infrastructure, offering greater choice in software deployment and flexible capacity
 
 
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN - News) today announced the general availability of Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud, which offers fashion companies a lower entry cost to product lifecycle management software. Lawson Fashion PLM is a collaborative, web-based solution that helps support the design and development of fashion products from concept to sourcing. Specific software modules include Line Optimizer, Storyboard, Fabric & Trim, Product Manager, Workflow and Source.

Because it is deployed via the Amazon EC2 cloud infrastructure, Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud helps make it easier for fashion companies to extend or reduce their use of the application and computer processing power as their business and requirements change. Deployment on Amazon’s EC2 global infrastructure helps reduce an organization’s own technology infrastructure needs and helps deliver business benefits more rapidly because cloud deployment helps support faster implementation.

Lawson is offering Fashion PLM customers greater choice in deployment options, including traditional on-premise deployment or the new cloud-based delivery option. Customers also have greater choice in how they pay for the software, with subscription-based pricing or traditional perpetual licensing available. Subscription based licensing offers a lower upfront investment, which can help companies allocate working capital to other projects. In addition, Lawson customers that choose subscription-based pricing can have the option to convert to a perpetual license at a later date.

“Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud helps simplify software ownership because customers do not need to worry about the hardware and system management – Lawson takes care of that for them through the Amazon infrastructure,” said Frédéric Champalbert, general manager of Fashion for Lawson. “Customers deploying Fashion PLM on the Cloud also benefit because they access their applications via a stable and secure Amazon platform with flexible computing power and 99.95% uptime.”

The Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud subscription-based service includes license, maintenance, support and managed services. As part of the Fashion PLM on the Cloud subscription package, Lawson Cloud Services deploys fix packs, service packs and upgrades, helping fashion companies focus their time and energy on developing new apparel products and accessories.

"Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud demonstrates we are listening to the market and delivering innovative solution to help fashion companies,” added Champalbert. “Lawson Fashion PLM on the Cloud offers advantages over a traditional SaaS or hosted solution and is simpler to own, implement and use.”
