Linked In PLM Group Launches 2009 PLM Webinar Series with focus on how to Afford and Implement PLM in the Current Economy.

Love your PLM Software, Love your PLM Implementation: January 29th at 4PM EST.

(South Orange, NJ, January 19, 2009) Zweave, Inc., the leader in On Demand PLM software for retailers and manufacturers of apparel and equipment is pleased to announce the launch of a PLM Webinar Series in January 2009 sponsored by the Linked In PLM group.

“Linked in supports the creation of groups and in late 2008 the PLM group was created. This group now includes over 200 professionals and continues to grow. As the founders of the group we believe PLM education is lacking and have decided to step up and formally launch a webinar series open to our members and industry” says Leah Poller, V.P Marketing at Zweave, Inc. “Our desire is to create a platform for the sharing and exchange of ideas. Our Webinar series demonstrates our interest in educating the market and raising PLM awareness. Our aim is to invite the small and medium size companies to the PLM conversation, as well as constituents of the organizations, making PLM investments and educate them on their options, market trends and provide a platform for dialogue” says Poller.
The Zweave Webinar Series begins January 29 at 4PM EST with a webinar: Love your PLM Software, Love your PLM Implementation. This one hour session will focus on asking and answering questions on: PLM configuration versus customization; On demand PLM versus License purchasing options, Open source PLM and Post Java technical approaches. Executive decision makers with a PLM budget should attend to learn how they can afford PLM in this economy. Announced Guest Speakers today include Rick Ludolph of Productive Solutions, David Buck, CIO, Zweave and will be moderated by Laura McCann, CEO, Zweave.
“With our PLM webinar Series we want to cut through the clutter of PLM messaging to the industry which typically has a sales focus” said David Buck, Zweave’s CIO. “We believe education, information and sharing are key to helping the industry understand PLM from the benefits but also the implementation perspective.

Free $5 gift card when you join!

“No one has to be left behind because of the markets and the economy. PLM can be democratic and available to anyone with the desire to improve their business processes”, states Poller. “We are offering our guests a $5 gift card if they join one or more webinar as a token of our appreciation. People are extremely busy and we hope that if they stop for an hour and are receptive to new ideas they should be rewarded”.

“Our Webinars will be the last Thursday of each month at 4PM EST. We hope by creating a standard time and place we will attract a diverse audience wishing to engage in a rich dialogue on PLM. We welcome guest speakers to submit their interest and join us on future panels with focus on design, sourcing, fit, Color, ERP integration to PLM and more.
