The second in a series of webinars aimed at helping apparel retailers and manufacturers understand the benefits and implementation of PLM (product lifecycle management) is now underway.

Organised by software supplier Zweave, and sponsored by the PLM group on the LinkedIn networking website, the webinars will take place on the last Thursday of each month.

“Our focus is to invite the small and medium size companies to the PLM conversation as well as constituents of the organizations making PLM investments and educate them on their options, market trends and provide a platform for dialogue” says Leah Poller, Zweave’s VP of marketing.

The spring webinar topics include ‘PLM for Sourcing Experts by Sourcing Experts’, ‘Create a Collaborative PLM framework with your Development Chain’ and ‘PLM for Material, Color and Graphic Development’.

“Our PLM webinar series seems to be cutting through the clutter of PLM messaging to the industry which typically has a sales focus,” Poller adds.

“Attendance has been growing and we have seen over 75% repeat attendance by registrants to our sessions.”
