It’s all about fashion.
Fashion is not one-size-fits-all and neither is product lifecycle management. That's why we've created a fully web-based system that fits your unique needs.
We've developed a solution strong enough and sophisticated enough to work your global supply chain.
Although you could, we don't expect you to build cars or airplanes with it. But you will love working with it for your next fashion collection.
Packed with power.
We've packed ChainReaction with rich features that can carry the product from collection planning and product development to the sales floor.
Fashion specific merchandise planning, flexible techpacks to manage your article details, interactive development version management – it’s all there in the standard solution.
We truly cover your complete concept to consumer lifecycle.
ChainReaction is a truly web-based, multi-browser and cross-platform system.
It even runs great on iPad, so you always have the right data at your fingertips, no matter where you are. That’s what we call true mobility.
With global partners in distributed locations, maintaining your collection data can be very complicated. ChainReaction PLM+ is there to support you wherever you are - working at head office or from home, on-site at your offshore sourcing facility or at the factory.
Always in sync.
With one integrated system, your supply chain is always in sync. Everybody can access the same system.
This leads to only one version of the truth. And not only that, all you need is already built in.
We are proud that ChainReaction PLM+ is developed in close collaboration with our customers from the fashion world. We only develop what is needed for fashion.
ChainReaction gathers all your collection data from Illustrator, Excel and local databases into one visually structured central database.
Create techpack forms
- Measurement grading
- Multi-level Bill Of Materials (BOMs)
- Artwork details
- Wash & care details
- Costing simulations.
Your techpacks can be easily fed by the extensive libraries for color cards, fabric and trims. The system automatically tracks changes made during the design process.
Developing your collection always starts with making the right merchandise planning. How do you balance your collection and make sure your themes end up matching in stores? With our fully integrated merchandise and assortment planning functionality you make sure you develop what you need.
Interactions between the planning and development departments are guaranteed. Based on your budget and collection size, the system automatically generates dummy styles for the design and development department. This gives your design team clear guidance in what to develop.
The progress of the collection development can be visually monitored and you are able to compare planned versus actual output. With the standard integration between ChainReaction and our Mockshop software, you can virtually plan your assortment in 3D, based on your collection and available space grades.
With ChainReaction PLM+ you can eliminate misunderstandings by speaking visually and making details count.
Reducing the barriers of communication means opening up to enhanced collaboration.
Every button and every stitch can be captured and shared in the system, to get right to the point of product testing.
The fully equipped Approvals section streamlines your color- and size set approvals process and proto comments are instantly shared with your remote offices and suppliers.
Fully integrated workflow capabilities help you manage and control your complete supply chain. Simply input your collection information and the workflow monitoring does the rest, aligning everything and monitoring each development step. Achieve professional-grade results every time.
At many fashion companies the software landscape is a mix of different platforms and browsers, often causing headaches in the IT department. Creative departments often work on Macs, while the rest run Windows.
ChainReaction is multi-browser and cross-platform by design. Let your design and development department access ChainReaction via Safari or Chrome, while your sourcing and purchasing department uses Internet Explorer.
And if they want to access data when not at their desk, it works great on tablets too. Let the users decide and relieve yourself from a painful infrastructural headache.
Easy IT integration.
ChainReaction PLM+ implementations are typically swift, with an emphasis on XML interfacing. Make sure your valuable enterprise data is available and up-to-date.
By using our integration tools existing customers exchange data between ChainReaction and systems like SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Navision, ProFashionAll, Ritra forwarders systems and many others.

ChainReaction PLM+ is cross platform and runs on touch screen handhelds, but that’s not all.
Depending on your IT strategy, the central database can be placed within your own hardware infrastructure, or be hosted externally.
