Exenta, formerly Simparel, will showcase its new Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and other enterprise solutions. Exenta will also lead a discussion on the use and future of blockchain technology as part of the Innovation Program at the event.

“We are pleased to sponsor this first edition of the popular PI Apparel event in Los Angeles,” said Exenta President and CEO Roberto Mangual. “Based on our prior participation in PI New York, we expect to meet with many business leaders and professionals that are working to digitally transform their product design, development, manufacturing, supply chain, and fulfilment processes. We look forward to sharing our expertise and demonstrating why so many companies are choosing Exenta as their partner in seizing the opportunities of today’s omnichannel marketplace.”  

Disruptive technology

The company’s exhibit will highlight the new Exenta PLM Revo solution. It is said to offer a cloud/web-based platform that effectively redefines the user experience by enhancing design creativity, automating tasks and processes, and providing analytics that drive more-timely and better-informed decisions across the entire business.

Kicking off day two of the event programme, Exenta CTO Ken Fearnley will lead a think tank discussion entitled Blockchain Technology and Fashion. The session will introduce the technology behind bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and how it can contribute to security, reliability, and social compliance in the apparel and fashion space. Attendees will learn how this disruptive technology may be leveraged for sample tracking, social compliance, materials traceability, and more.


Designed for the apparel, fashion, and consumer goods industries, Exenta aims to empower brands, manufacturers, and retailers to advance and scale their businesses by accelerating and improving performance across the entire business and global supply chain.

“The Exenta Enterprise solution provides global process visibility, control and collaboration by combining traditionally independent Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Sourcing & Supply Chain Management (SCM), Materials Requirements Planning (MRP), Shop Floor Control (SFC), Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Warehouse Management (WMS), Financial Management (FMS), and other productivity tools into a single, fashion-focused business system,” the company explains.
