TOLLAND, Conn., USA , Dec. 22, 2011 – On Jan. 24 at the London College of Fashion, Gerber Technology will host a seminar entitled Realising the Business Benefits of PLM. The event will profile several leading global retail and fashion companies demonstrating how they have implemented and are using the YuniquePLM™ product lifecycle management system to eliminate major pain points and achieve an advantage over competitors.
Attendees will witness how YuniquePLM uses line plans to simplify range planning and makes use of templates, libraries and calendars to standardise business processes. Demonstrations will include virtual sampling using 3D visualisation as well as creative ways to manage today’s increasingly complex tech packs. The event will be informative for individuals involved in design, merchandising, product development, sourcing and IT system management.
“Gerber Technology is much more than simply a supplier of PLM systems,” explains Bill Brewster, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Gerber Technology’s Software Solutions business. “Because we have amassed decades of experience designing and implementing PDM and PLM systems for the retail and fashion sector, we know what works and what doesn’t – what designers and other users want and what they don’t. We partner closely with our clients sharing industry best practices with them so they can achieve the fastest return on their investment in the YuniquePLM system.”
YuniquePLM is the recipient of the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Fashion Product Lifecycle Management Product Leadership Award. An independent team of analysts evaluated several PLM suppliers based on product features and functionality, product innovation, product acceptance in the marketplace and customer value enhancements. Analysts from Frost & Sullivan said, “YuniquePLM is a well-drawn solution created by a team of people from the industry who have hands-on expertise in addressing the needs of the fashion PLM industry across the globe.”
