Gerber Technology, developers of the YuniquePLMTM product lifecycle management solution, will demonstrate why YuniquePLM is the leading PLM solution for the fashion and retail industries in booth No. 1378 at the 2012 National Retail Federation's BIG Show held in New York City Jan. 15-18. Through interactive demonstrations, visitors will witness how YuniquePLM's intuitive interface encourages designers, supply chain partners and executives alike to embrace the system.

YuniquePLM enables users to manage the details of line plans, tech packs and samples and simplifies communication with global partners to help get products to market faster, on time and at lower cost. In addition, because it integrates with other enterprise-wide systems, it provides visibility into the entire business to give managers and executives the business intelligence they need to make well-informed decisions.

Donny Askin, president of Gerber Technology's Software Solutions business, explains, "Most retailers, brand owners and manufacturers who have chosen YuniquePLM have done so because they see how easy it is to use and appreciate how it can streamline their day-to-day processes. More importantly, they understand that, with their investment, they get a team of experts with deep industry and process experience who have grown up in the fashion industry and bring with them the knowledge of what makes companies like theirs successful."

YuniquePLM also integrates with Gerber's AccuMark® pattern design, grading and marker making system. For example, individuals can share measurements specified in YuniquePLM's tech packs with pattern designers to minimize re-work and errors and accelerate the product development process.

YuniquePLM is the recipient of the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Fashion Product Lifecycle Management Product Leadership Award. Frost & Sullivan analysts evaluated several PLM contenders based on product features and functionality, product innovation, product acceptance in the marketplace and customer value enhancements. Their findings state, "YuniquePLM is a well-drawn solution created by a team of people from the industry who have hands-on expertise in addressing the needs of the fashion PLM industry across the globe. This has enabled the wide adoption and acceptance of YuniquePLM across various end-users in the fashion industry."
