Xperia Solutions Partners with Row One Brands July 25 2013

Company to provide ERP services via its Comprehensiv™ solution

EMMAUS, PA – July 25, 2013 – Xperia Solutions announced recently that it will provide a complete ERP solution for startup company Row One Brands, Inc. of Needham, Mass. The company’s Comprehensiv SaaS solution will be used and features a full suite of products including warehouse and inventory management, procurement and production, CRM, financials, and more.

“Comprehensiv is the perfect fit for a new company like Row One since it will enable them to track goods from inception (production) through the sales process as well as shipment and final payment,” said Gina Bauer, Xperia’s Director of Marketing.

Founded in 2013, Row One produces customized footwear for the collegiate market. Their canvas sneaker silhouette can be branded with a college’s colors and logos allowing students, faculty, and alumni to display their school pride via their footwear the same way they already do through their apparel. Row One is currently working with several colleges and expects the product to be picked up by many more in the near future thanks in part to its agreement with the Collegiate Licensing Company. The company also plans to expand its product line to include other footwear silhouettes.

Row One’s Chief Operating Officer Joe Smith, Jr. and CEO Jim Sabitus have worked with Xperia at previous footwear companies and had already been familiar with the ERP’s extensive capabilities. “When it came to choosing an ERP system, we knew exactly who we wanted as the partner for Row One”.

“We had absolutely no hesitation about working with Xperia Solutions once again,” said Smith. “They have always been a quality vendor and a proven partner. The fact that they specialize in the footwear and apparel industries, use the IBM platform and offer a system that is scalable and easy to use was ideal for us. Allowing our company to now run the Comprehensiv™ system as a SaaS solution was just what we were looking for in our ERP platform. In addition, the Xperia staff regularly goes above and beyond with their customer service. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Xperia.”

Founded in 1984, Xperia is an industry leader in enterprise management solutions for the apparel and footwear industries that run exclusively on the IBM platform. Xperia’s Executiv™ Suite helps businesses of all sizes manage the full spectrum of manufacturers’ requirements including warehouse inventory, procurement, production, financials, e-commerce and more.
