Allows Seamless Move to Single System that Enables Retailers to Manage all Aspects of their Creative Design Process
(GLOUCESTER, MA, FEBRUARY 19, 2010) TradeStone Software, recognized by analysts for delivering top-rated Merchandise Lifecycle Management solutions that unify the design, sourcing, ordering and delivery of private label and branded goods, today announced the immediate availability of “Fashion Forward™,” a FREE migration tool for retailers and brand manufacturers who have outgrown Gerber webPDM and other legacy PLM systems and are interested in migrating to TradeStone’s PLM solution.
TradeStone’s new offering is providing retailers with a safe, trusted alternative to Gerber’s acquisition of Yunique. With TradeStone, leading retailers around the world can use a single system to unify and mange their merchandise process, building great brands driven by inspiration and creativity.
“We’ve been listening to our customers and prospects who are concerned about what Gerber’s recent acquisition of Yunique will mean for them,” said Sue Welch, CEO, TradeStone Software. “Historically in the software industry, multiple platforms obtained through acquisition leads to solution rewrites, integration challenges and upgrade delays. By migrating their PLM activities to TradeStone we are removing all the uncertainties they were facing and providing them with a clear path forward.”
Retailers and brand manufacturers interested in learning more about “Fashion Forward” are encouraged to register for the Gerber Migration Webinar on March 9 at 11:00 am ET. Visit www.tradestonesoftware.com/pdmmigration for more details.
