Gerber Technology Supports, Sponsors, Participates in PI Apparel, Hong Kong with Cloud Migration Customer Case Study
HONG KONG, April. 5, 2016 – Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, today announced they will be highlighting their integrated Digital Solutions, including AccuMark®, AccuMark 3D, AccuPlan™ and YuniquePLM®, at PI Apparel in Hong Kong. They are also proud to be supporting their long-time customer, Helly Hansen, as they discuss their upgrade from webPDM™ to YuniquePLM In The Cloud.
Every year, the fashion and apparel industry spends billions of dollars on sampling. The shipping of these samples back and forth around the globe is not friendly to the planet either. Gerber’s team will be demonstrating how their AccuMark 2D & 3D software simulates virtual garment samples so realistic that there’s no need for designers to spend the time and money cutting and sewing “real” ones. They’ll highlight how combining AccuMark with the company’s YuniquePLM In The Cloud platform enables fashion companies to collaborate and save 30 – 50 percent on their sample costs.
Loyal AccuMark and YuniquePLM customer, Helly Hansen will present the key business challenges of upgrading from webPDM to YuniquePLM In The Cloud. For more than 10 years, Helly Hansen has used webPDM as the central database for all product information and AccuMark for its technical design and pattern making. Key factors in upgrading to YuniquePLM In The Cloud were to solve communication and inefficiencies across their value chain.
“We are excited to have our long time customer, Helly Hansen, discuss their experience with upgrading to our industry-leading YuniquePLM In The Cloud,” said Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager, enterprise software solutions. “Utilizing their understanding of webPDM and transferring it to capitalize on the capabilities of YuniquePLM in the future, will allow them to leverage cost savings and realize efficiencies that will increase their speed to market and ultimately help drive profitability.”
