Chico's FAS, Inc. together with its subsidiaries has decided to implement Gerber Technology's webView application and upgrade to the browser enabled version of Gerber's webPDM to efficiently and effectively manage their product data.

Kevin McIntosh, Director of Application Development and Delivery at Chico's FAS commented, "We have been very happy with the existing Gerber products already in use at Chico's FAS and believe the addition of webView along with the upgrade to the new version of webPDM will enhance our productivity, collaboration and visibility capabilities. All of our data will be in one central repository, eliminating silos of information that typically reside in emails and Excel spreadsheets."

Launched in October of 2008, webView is a component of Gerber Technology's PLM Software Suite for the fashion industry. During implementation, webView will be mapped to Chico's FAS business processes, while taking into account best practices in order to help them improve workflow, track fit samples, request quotes, calculate costing and gain heightened visibility through dashboards utilizing specific KPIs.
