TradeStone helps retailers, brand manufacturers, and their suppliers turn inspiration into great merchandise. TradeStone provides the technology platform to connect people as they design, source, and deliver merchandise. We call this Merchandise Lifecycle Management. TradeStone MLM is now enabled on PureSystems.
For retailers who want to expand their private label and global sourcing initiatives, TradeStone’s Merchandise Lifecycle Management solutions support the design, coordination and delivery of highly profitable and innovative merchandise to the sales floor. Unlike software solutions that offer siloed stand-alone capabilities, TradeStone is the only company that unifies the PLM for retail, collaborative sourcing, order management, global trade management and supplier community management pieces to reduce cycle times and deliver merchandise that sells through at full price.
