Pendleton Woolen Mills to Discuss Real World Experience and Benefits
of Implementing YuniquePLM at the Upcoming Apparel Tech Conference West
(New York, NY, 03/13/2013) Attendees of this year’s Apparel Tech Conference in Los Angeles, California will hear how Pendleton Woolen Mills, an American heritage brand, has streamlined and optimized their business processes with the implementation of YuniquePLM™. The conference will be held on March 19th at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
During the one-day event, attendees will hear from Catherine Dessellier, Pendleton Woolen Mills’ PLM project manager, as she discusses how YuniquePLM has helped simplify Pendleton’s business processes and enabled them to break away from long-established methodologies and traditional toolsets, to eliminate data discrepancies and development errors by relying on a single version of the truth. Dessellier will also discuss the importance of working with a trusted and committed supplier with deep domain knowledge.
Bill Brewster, vice president of Global Sales and Marketing for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business, said, “For retailers, brand owners and manufacturers, large and small, PLM can be a considerable investment in terms of time and resources. However, those that adopt PLM benefit greatly from the system’s ability to centralize data from various parts of the business into one homogenous platform that makes good on its promise to deliver the right products to market, on time and at a lower cost.”
YuniquePLM system is a user-friendly, collaborative system that connects creative teams with supply chain teams through robust integration with Adobe® Illustrator®, pattern design CAD software, sourcing and ERP solutions. It enables users to track responsibilities and workflows with powerful calendar management and business intelligence capabilities, generate “what if” costing scenarios and to collaborate effortlessly with global partners and suppliers.
