Speed and personalisation have become the new normal in the fashion industry as consumer trends and expectations shift quickly. Brands, retailers and manufacturers are racing to keep pace as they strive to win the hearts, minds and loyalty of their consumers in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

“To create personalized experiences and stay on trend, brands need to improve data analytics and integration across their supply chain,” said Clayton Parker, Director of PLM Product Management, Gerber Technology. “With our new YuniquePLM Version 8, we’ve introduced a new UI, built features based on our customers’ needs, and added integrations to enable our customers to analyse trends and seamlessly pass data across their workflow.”

The latest version of YuniquePLM is part of an aggressive software release schedule Gerber has planned for 2019. Version 8 focuses on functionality, usability, and configuration and includes a new and improved user interface. “The updated UI is a great improvement, along with additional functionalities. The visuals are clean and streamline, moving you through the process quickly. Gerber continues to prove themselves to be forward thinking in their approach to the world of PLM,” said June Evans, Director of Technical Design at CC Filson.

Capitalising on its Cloud platform Version 8 is one of seven releases of YuniquePLM within the past 12 months, which included over 100 new features. Some of the 30 plus new features in the latest version include:

  • New, modern interface to maximise the amount of data you see on screen.
  • A new functionality called Direct Access allows users to directly open digital assets from YuniquePLM in the software application of their choice.
  • The new Quick Sample feature allows users to quickly and easily request a sample in a few steps and allows the user to view and manage Virtual Samples with a new Gerber 3D Viewer.
  • Better integration with Gerber’s industry-leading AccuMark software.
  • Seamless integration with True Fit’s Fashion Genome, the comprehensive data collection that helps consumers choose the right fit every time.

“We know our customers are facing incredible demands to balance speed and creativity,” continued Mr Parker. “With our new UI and functionality like Direct Access, we focused on eliminating unnecessary and time-consuming steps. Additionally, our Cloud platform and SaaS model allows us to continuously deploy new features every couple of weeks, so our customers are continually getting the latest version without paying any additional fees.”
