Sun City Chooses YuniquePLM® In The Cloud – Displaces Competitive PLM System


TOLLAND, CONN., USA, May 3, 2017 – Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, today announced that Sun City, Fashion for Humanity chose YuniquePLM In The Cloud to increase flexibility and productivity.  Sun City is the fashion under license source for Europe.

Sun City sought a platform to manage its large, diverse licensed collections to give them visibility of a garment’s status in the supply chain at any given time during its transformation through connected systems – from concept to the consumer.

“The implementation of YuniquePLM In The Cloud will save us on infrastructure and implementation costs,” said Sally Barget, operations and purchase director at Sun City. “Our team will be able to increase productivity by having all the data of a collection at their fingertips and, with this new system, we will always have the latest functionality since upgrades are simple.”

Sun City is starting the implementation of YuniquePLM In The Cloud with the iconic New Man Division. This division was previously utilizing a different solution. They are also implementing the YuSnap mobile app to help with images during fitting sessions, helping to further collaboration and data integration with their teams. “We made the change because of a more intuitive and flexible interface with additional functionality,” continued Barget.

Sun City is a partner to the largest European brands in all sectors of the market including: multi-brand stores, e-commerce, specialists, department stores and mail order. They serve major European brands like Tesco, Carrefour, Primark, Disney and Amazon.com, with their licensed collections.
