Adorn Fashions, one of the fastest growing brands of casual sportswear for the petite, missy and plus-size markets, has chosen YuniquePLM software to help enhance accountability and visibility across its vendors and users.

"We have experienced a lot of growth in the past five years and are looking to take our business to the next level," said Ricky Zinn, vice president and COO of Adorn Fashions.

"We noticed that as we grew, complexity increased: we spent more time looking and less time doing.

"Our previous method of storing separate Excel and Adobe Illustrator files in a repository is time-consuming to organise, prone to errors and lacks accountability. In addition, searching within the repository favours one operating system over the other - furthering confusion.

"With Yunique Solutions' out-of-the-box configuration, we were able to move through the first implementation phase as quickly as we have."

Zinn added that he believes "successful implementation is the most crucial step, bar none, in having a successful PLM solution."

Adorn Fashions currently manages two brands, Baccini and Mynt 1792, along with a private label line.
