EdgeAX, a unit of Visionet Systems, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of EdgeAX Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) version 2.0, which is embedded in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, and offers a collaborative PLM solution to Apparel and CPG industries.

With an increased complexity in the PLM processes, and in contrast to the rapidly growing demands of the consumers, the need to collaborate at each phase of the product lifecycle has increased by manifold. EdgeAX Collaborative PLM version 2.0 is hence designed to not only accelerate the product innovation but also to maximize product profitability through effective collaboration. What distinguishes EdgeAX PLM is its ability to capture the experience and knowledge, which is unique to each phase of the product lifecycle, and then use it to influence the subsequent informative decisions throughout the process.

Some tangible benefits of EdgeAX PLM include enabling internal collaboration for product concepts and designs to create new market-driven products, along with collaboration with vendors to ensure speedy delivery of products, which reduces product costs and improves margins. The web-based intuitive interface enables business users with ‘on the go' access to important information anywhere, anytime. With seamless and collaborative approach, EdgeAX PLM provides many ways to reduce the lead-time for new products, and its timeliness helps in increasing the sales volume of current products.

"EdgeAX PLM version 2.0 is designed by a team that has a proven history of serving the apparel and CPG businesses for nearly two decades", said Jawad Khan, VP Product Development, and further added "it is yet another important milestone that our EdgeAX team has accomplished that will benefit businesses of all sizes supporting their extended enterprise to enable collaborative Product Lifecycle Management."
