Lisa Elston, Fashion Instructor at Saddleback College (Irvine, CA) invited AIMS360 Managing Partner, Henry Cherner and Marketing Director, Chris Walia to their campus on Wednesday to discuss apparel e-commerce during their current class session. More specifically, the two spoke to students about building a successful shopping cart, branding, marketing, and AIMS EasyShop. “The class was eager to learn, very engaged and asked many questions about building a successful online presence” said Chris Walia.
Saddleback College is one of the first colleges to teach a course on building and maintaining a retail e-commerce website called “Apparel Cart: Fashion Retailing Online with AIMS EasyShop Cart”. The class allows students to create and manage the full process of an online store for their fashion business using EasyShop (AIMS B2C retail e-commerce shopping cart). Shahrooz Kohan, COO of AIMS360 and Lead Developer of EasyShop, developed and donated fully functional e-commerce back-end systems for each student in the class.
ABOUT AIMS EDUCATION
AIMS (now known as AIMS360) was first taught to students at Los Angeles Trade Technical College in 1998. Knowing the ins and outs of the fashion industry and what fashion students were being taught at various trade schools and colleges, Henry Cherner saw that there was a void that still needed to be filled between designing, merchandising, etc. and business concepts. Henry and his co-founding partner of AIMS, Scott Chaban, had built a successful automated tool for inventory management, order taking, shipping, accounting, EDI , etc. and saw that there was a strong tie between classroom education, technology and an evolving business world and that students within this industry needed more than just a fashion sense to be successful. So, Henry created a Fashion Merchandising Math/Costing syllabus and instituted it into various fashion curriculums. As time went on and the AIMS software itself started to evolve, and there was a need of more people to better understand how manage an apparel ERP Software, so Henry created an AIMS Certification program. The program itself teaches how to use an inventory management software (on the AIMS platform) and how to automate the many facets of the apparel industry using the system.
AIMS is dedicated to educating and training of future “garmentos” in the apparel industry. AIMS is currently being taught at universities, colleges, and trade schools such as Los Angeles Trade Technical College, Art Institute of CA San Diego, Cal Poly Pomona AMM, UCLA Extension, Saddleback College Irvine, CA, and in its second quarter at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising).
