Three brands, informed by expertise


2014 has already proven to be a busy year for WhichPLM – the de facto destination for news, opinion, supplier listings and insight for apparel Product Lifecycle Management – and it’s also likely to be remembered as one of the biggest and best for our brands as a whole.

At the beginning of the year we launched the first of our new initiatives, WhichPLM Academy, which was followed in April by the second: WhichERP.  WhichPLM Academy delivers fashion-focused PLM education in both self-directed e-learning and live online classroom environments; WhichERP is a counterpart to WhichPLM, bringing our ethics, expertise, and editorial voice to bear on the Enterprise Resource Planning market for retail, footwear and apparel.

This teaser video explains a little more about each of our brands, and I would encourage visitors to one to take the time to explore the others.

As always, we welcome reader (and now student) feedback.  This year and beyond will see us begin to explore the full potential of each brand – WhichPLM, WhichERP, and WhichPLM Academy.  And I know I speak for the entire team when I say that we are thrilled to have the chance to build something multifaceted and enduring, and something that responds to the real challenges that retailers, brands and manufacturers face in 2014 and over the coming years.
