Woollen apparel maker Pendleton is to implement Yunique product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions at its headquarters in Portland, Oregon.

Pendleton said it expected the new software to streamline its product development cycle times, improving creativity across all four of its product divisions.

About 45 users will go live with the system this summer, while Pendleton will also use Yunique’s companion SrmOn supplier relationship management (SRM) software to integrate its global factory partners into its business processes.

“We are looking forward to building the brand for the next generation, and we are committed to providing our teams with the most productive tools available,” said Pat Fowler, women’s wear division manager at Pendleton.

“By utilising the Yunique solution to keep information flow moving forward and automate traditionally manual tasks, our development team will realise efficiencies to focus on creativity and product innovation.”
