Kenneth Cole Productions has implemented Gerber Technology's YuniquePLM (product lifecycle management) software for its men's, women's, and children's apparel and footwear lines.

The firm said the tool will help it to manage its product portfolio by making sure its teams can collaborate and communicate optimally to increase speed and efficiency.

"With YuniquePLM, we can avoid the holdbacks of small errors that snowball into larger ones due to miscommunication between our designers, sourcing teams and international vendors by having all of the information in a single location," said Kenneth Cole's senior vice president of operations, Arthur Bargonetti.
