A Powerful, Rapid Implementation Configuration of its YuniquePLM Solution
Enables companies to get up and running in as little as three weeks
(TOLLAND, USA, DECEMBER 20, 2010) Gerber Technology, a business unit of Gerber Scientific, Inc., introduces YuniquePLM FS edition, an out-of-the-box, rapid implementation configuration of its industry-leading YuniquePLM™ product suitable for businesses of any size seeking to more effectively manage their product lifecycles.
Bill Brewster, president of Gerber Technology’s Software Solutions business, explains, “Gerber configured this out-of-the-box offering according to industry best practices amassed over decades of implementing PLM systems for leading apparel companies. Now, by leveraging the power of our experience, companies of any size can quickly reap the benefits of PLM. In fact, most companies can begin using it extensively in as little as three weeks. And because YuniquePLM is founded on an architecture that provides the scalability and extensibility to fully integrate into the enterprise, even large companies can quickly take advantage of it.”
“YuniquePLM FS edition provides one-stop shopping for smaller companies and is the first step in PLM implementation for larger ones,” explains Elizabeth King, executive director of Software Product Management at Gerber Technology. “It is an ideal way for companies looking to get up and running quickly with an affordable yet scalable PLM solution. Considering the abundance of information circulating among merchandisers, designers, pattern makers, sourcing professionals and supply chain partners at any given time, errors and inefficiencies are bound to occur with manual processes. YuniquePLM helps minimize errors and always delivers the most current information – critical for making informed business decisions.”
The system is pre-populated with critical templates and industry standard data including PANTONE® TPC and TCX color palettes, measurement tables, care symbols and instructions. Auto-generated fit comments are also a popular, time-saving feature. “This out-of-the-box solution requires only minimal training and is easy to install,” added King. “We’ve configured it to help accelerate time to market, reduce development costs, ensure quality and respond to demands for more seasons and styles. Implementing such an intuitive and fashion-focused solution enables companies to very quickly realize a return on their investment.”
