(TOLLAND, Conn., September 5, 2012) B&H Company, a Southern Calif.-based, vertically-integrated apparel manufacturer, has selected Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM™ FS (Fast Start) edition product lifecycle management software to help manage the company’s newest high-end women’s clothing line scheduled to be launched later this year. The YuniquePLM solution will help B&H improve data organization, minimize errors and streamline production processes, all while supporting the company’s plans for domestic and international growth. Founded in 1988, B&H has established itself as a key manufacturer and supplier of knit tops to retailers worldwide.
“We are excited to begin working with Gerber’s YuniquePLM system,” said Waleed Mansour, CFO of B&H Company. “We expect it to help us improve the way we manage our information and our business processes. YuniquePLM will also enable us to shorten product development times by providing the members of our production team access to information through a single, integrated system.”
Because YuniquePLM is a solution designed specifically for the apparel, accessories and footwear industries, it delivers the highest value in the shortest time frame. The software’s highly collaborative functionality will allow B&H’s technical design, pattern making, product development and production teams to communicate more effectively on tech-pack details. In the future, B&H plans to integrate YuniquePLM with other enterprise systems to strengthen communication across the organization.
Bill Brewster, vice president Global Sales and Marketing for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business, said, “Companies of all sizes can benefit from the process control that YuniquePLM offers. Because it centralizes data, tracks workflows, improves communication with colleagues and suppliers and detailed visibility into all aspects of the product lifecycle, it minimizes errors and enables managers to make better informed decisions.”
YuniquePLM is the recipient of the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Fashion Product Lifecycle Management Product Leadership Award which recognizes the PLM system that scores highest on product features and functionality, innovation, product acceptance in the marketplace and customer value enhancements.
