Yunique Solutions Announces Release of PowerGrid to Accelerate Data Entry and Editing in YuniquePLM


(NEW YORK, 28 May, 2013) Yunique Solutions, creators of YuniquePLM™ product lifecycle management software, released PowerGrid™, an extension of YuniquePLM. PowerGrid is a grid-based interface that enables users to enter, edit and copy data en masse and perform real-time data analysis within a spreadsheet-like view. It expedites the editing process, simplifies historical comparisons and facilitates analysis of multiple costing scenarios.

PowerGrid reads master data from YuniquePLM so it eliminates redundant data entry. Users can filter, search and sort data, freeze, hide and move columns and rows for more effective data management and visibility. In addition, the ability to grant role-based permissions at the field level enables organizations to better manage data integrity and process workflows.

Bill Brewster, vice president of Global Sales and Marketing for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business, said, “The pressure never ceases for retailers and brands to do things ever faster and more efficiently. We are constantly incorporating feedback from our users to help them maximize the power of YuniquePLM. With PowerGrid, there’s no faster way to enter and manipulate data to find the answers to critical business questions that help companies get the right products to market faster. This is just another example of how the Yunique Solutions team continually strives to empower its users.”

YuniquePLM enables retailers and brand owners to manage the details of line plans, tech packs and samples and simplifies communication with global partners to help accelerate products to market, while ensuring they are on time and at lowest cost. The latest release, YuniquePLM v5, offers enhanced integration with Adobe® Illustrator®, dynamic line creation capabilities, sourcing and compliance tracking, as well as powerful “what if” scenarios that enable teams to determine if a product will meet profitability expectations before designers sketch a concept or generate a single piece of artwork.
