Blog: Leonie Barriejust-style launching PLM hub

Leonie Barrie | 10 December 2008

Among the consistently most popular stories on just-style are those relating to new software and new installations bridging the supply chain between manufacturers and retailers. And of course the reason for this is that having the right systems in place is a sure-fire way of giving companies a competitive edge.

Sitting at the top of the technology tree are PLM (product lifecycle management) tools. How else would apparel and footwear firms be able to juggle constant order changes and short product lifecycles across complex global supply chains if they didn’t have the right software to manage every step of the process?

We’ve now taken this demand for the latest information on PLM to the next logical stage, and in January will be launching a dedicated PLM hub to help clothing and footwear firms keep up-to-date on the latest products, developments, applications and roll-outs specifically aimed at them. Dassault Systèmes and PTC are among the PLM vendors supporting the hub.
