Formation Systems Helps Yves Rocher Increase Global Collaboration Between Research and Development and Production Teams

Formation Systems' Award-Winning Technology Optiva Enables Better Workflow and Integration with SAP

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 13, 2003-- Formation Systems, a leader in product lifecycle management (PLM) today announced the successful deployment of its Optiva solution at Yves Rocher, a global fragrance and beauty supply manufacturer. With Optiva, Yves Rocher has streamlined the process of developing award-winning products by strengthening interaction between all aspects of product development, from scientific research to manufacturing industrialization.

Yves Rocher turned to Formation Systems because it needed a solution that would enable company-wide collaboration across global business units. Yves Rocher's new product development rests on the unique contribution from specialists in the Marketing, Research, Development, Regulation and Manufacturing Departments. Yves Rocher wanted to improve the quantity, quality and fluid exchange of information. To do this, Yves Rocher needed a user-friendly solution that worked across these groups, and turned to Formation Systems' Optiva for the answer. Optiva not only enables greater collaboration within the company but also provides integration with Yves Rocher's existing SAP database, enabling Yves Rocher developers to pull the necessary information from SAP manufacturing systems into Optiva.

Yves Rocher is benefiting from Formation Systems' depth of experience in delivering high quality PLM solutions to the process manufacturing industries including chemicals and consumer packaged goods.

"Our mission is to automate the idea-to-cash cycle for our customers," said Dan Keelan, president and CEO of Formation Systems. "Companies like Yves Rocher realize immediate benefits after deploying Optiva because our solution streamlines the entire product development process ensuring products get to market faster and more cost efficiently."
