Swedish catalogue retailer Consortio Fashion Group AB (CFG) has adopted Gerber Technology's YuniquePLM product lifecycle management software to help manage the complexities of its mail order business.

In addition to managing details associated with images, raw materials, tech packs, samples, RFQs, line lists and assortment plans, CFG will rely on YuniquePLM to help manage relationships with suppliers and the many details related to its products and collections by catalogue page.

CFG publishes tens of catalogues per year that serve customers in a dozen markets within Europe through its Cellbes and Halens brands.

The YuniquePLM product "will enable us to capture all steps of our assortment planning, from sketches to sales estimations and profitability analysis, in one location and will provide information to help us more effectively determine budgets, plan assortments, select suppliers, develop samples and control our overall workflow," explains Consortio CIO Karel Slusarcuk.

The fashion firm will integrate the tool with its ERP system to access historical and current product performance that will assist managers in building reliable targets for new collections.
