SPAIN: Mango invests in Lectra’s new PLM solution
Spanish fashion retailer Mango is to use Lectra's product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to help develop, manage and control its collections.
Lectra's PLM solution, which sees its official launch in early 2006, will be implemented in close collaboration with Mango's specialised teams to ensure it meets the specific needs of the brand.
The software will initially be used by more than 800 Mango employees and suppliers dedicated to the design and development of the 70 million garments and accessories the company produces each year.
Developed for the global fashion industry, the solution enables companies to manage the full scope of activities across the product lifecycle.
"At Mango, our activity goes beyond design, manufacturing and marketing; it is the creation of a concept…with a distinctive design and a coherent, unified brand image," said Elena Carasso, Mango's e-business director.
"Lectra's new PLM solution will allow us to build and structure our collections according to our economic and strategic objectives, to synchronise the contributions of different players involved in the various collection development processes, and to be truly proactive in defining priorities, allocating resources, and managing multiple concurrent workflows."
