Sun City, Fashion for Humanity has invested in a new product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to manage its large, diverse licensed collections and boost supply chain control.

Headquartered in France, Sun City Group is a supplier and wholesaler of clothing under brand or character licenses for Europe, aiding Tesco, Carrefour, Primark, Disney and Amazon, with their licensed collections. 

"The implementation of YuniquePLM In The Cloud will save us on infrastructure and implementation costs," says Sally Barget, operations and purchase director at Sun City. "Our team will be able to increase productivity by having all the data of a collection at their fingertips and, with this new system, we will always have the latest functionality since upgrades are simple." 

Sun City sought a platform to increase flexibility and productivity, and provide visibility of a garment's status in the supply chain at any given time during its transformation through connected systems – from concept to the consumer.

The company will begin the implementation with its New Man division, which was previously using a different solution. Meanwhile, Sun City will also utilise the YuSnap mobile app to help with images during fitting sessions.

"Adding Sun City to the YuniquePLM In The Cloud family is a great addition to the portfolio of fashion and apparel brands recognising the benefits of employing cloud technologies in their businesses," adds Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager, enterprise software solutions for Gerber Technology. "This solution is helping companies around the world reduce their infrastructure costs while increasing productivity and flexibility across their organisation."
