An out-of-the-box version of its YuniquePLM solution should help companies to get up-and-running on the product lifecycle management software in as little as three weeks, Gerber Technology claims.

“YuniquePLM FS edition provides one-stop shopping for smaller companies and is the first step in PLM implementation for larger ones,” explains Elizabeth King, executive director of software product management.

“Considering the abundance of information circulating among merchandisers, designers, pattern makers, sourcing professionals and supply chain partners at any given time, errors and inefficiencies are bound to occur with manual processes. YuniquePLM helps minimise errors and always delivers the most current information – critical for making informed business decisions.”

The system is pre-populated with templates and industry standard data including Pantone TPC and TCX colour palettes, measurement tables, care symbols and instructions. Auto-generated fit comments are also a popular, time-saving feature.
