Freeborders PLM is launching a web-based collaborative development solution to help shorten the design cycle, reduce the amount of physical samples needed, and bring product managers closer to their trend.

Quad and Quad PLM Express, which is designed for smaller retailers and apparel companies, include an easier configuration, multi-language capabilities, and an intuitive user interface.

Debbie Baldini, managing director of Freeborders Retail Practice, says the Quad PLM suite’s 11 modules “allow users to consolidate data and easily communicate with one another.”
