Truly innovative content

– More user intuitive: The user interface has been completely overhauled and is presented as an extension of MS Outlook, thereby benefiting the user, both in daily operations and while learning, a process that is now shorter.

– Fabric Management: Concerning the creation of new fabric types, apparel companies pay increasingly more attention to the choice of fabrics to use and their features. That is why it is crucial to have the option to use the same datasheet tool for apparel as for developing new cloths. This feature benefits both vertical companies that produce fabrics internally as well as those that must provide their suppliers with precise technical details.

Porini PLM - Product Specification page– Sampling Management: In practice, the process of developing a new fabric is treated like manufacturing an item of clothing, from the earliest stages of creation when there is talk of weft and warp yarns. Different combinations of these components are made even simpler by a new feature like Sampling Management. The operator selects the design to use, chooses the warp and weft yarns, and with just one click the system quickly reckons the exact cost, weight and composition!
