Pearl Izumi USA, the marketer of cycling and running apparel and footwear, is implementing Yunique Solutions’ plmOn product lifecycle management (PLM) software at its Colorado headquarters.

The company will utilise the web-based solution, which will go live this autumn, throughout its product development merchandising, and operations departments.

Pearl Izumi will also use Yunique’s srmOn supplier relationship management (SRM) to integrate its trading partners into the system.

“As our product lines expanded to meet growing global demand, the need for a PLM solution became obvious”, noted Tiffany Howell, senior development manager for apparel at Pearl Izumi.

“The extreme level of detail and processes required to manage technical performance products grew beyond the practical limits of the spreadsheet and email tools that we relied on in the past.”

She added that the new software “will simplify our work and enable our teams to make more informed decisions and be more creative.”
