Gerber’s YuniquePLM claims to be the fashion industry’s ‘number-one’ product lifecycle management platform

For fashion companies across the globe, managing data is one of the most time-consuming tasks.

Those companies which have implemented a product lifecycle management system are more able to decrease time to market and optimize a single source of data across their supply chain easily.

Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager, enterprise software solutions at Gerber, says: “Digitalization is imperative to thrive today and our customers are embracing it.

“They are realizing the benefit of centralized / single version of the truth that’s achieved by implementing a PLM system and that is evident by the growth in numbers this year.” 

WhichPLM says Gerber has 203 customers for 2016 surpassing all other companies by more than 15 and achieves double-digit growth for new customers in the same year.

This makes it “the most widely used and chosen PLM application in the fashion industry”, according to Gerber.

Gerber has offered product lifecycle management software like product data management and PLM to its customers since the 1980s, making it one of the first providers in the industry to do so, according to the company.

The cloud-based YuniquePLM software subscription solution is flexible and scalable without the costly information technology infrastructure.

It is the culmination of extensive customer feedback and is perfect for any sized fashion company looking for an industry-leading PLM solution.

YuniquePLM Cloud represents the first opportunity to get world-class PLM from the industry leader at a very affordable subscription rate, with minimal implementation effort and a wealth of self-learning tools on Gerber University.

YuniquePLM Cloud claims to be the first PLM system for the apparel industry to be in the cloud, offer a free trial and available as a Saas.

It streamlines design and development, helping users get the right products to market sooner. Intuitive and easy to use, YuniquePLM integrates seamlessly with Gerber’s AccuMark CAD software, and the Adobe suite.
