The YuniquePLM product lifecycle management (PLM) software has been integrated with the Pointcarré textile design software to help companies cut sampling costs, speed product to market and enhance merchandising presentations.

"The integration of our product is an absolute breakthrough, marking the first time that a pure CAD software and PLM system communicate so well, truly changing the way designers work," explains Steve Greenberg, president of Pointcarré North America.

"What used to take hours can now be accomplished in only a few minutes. The addition of Pointcarré integration is a tremendous aid for the creative team and ultimately offers an improved way of working."

Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager at Yunique Solutions, a business unit of Gerber Technology, adds: "By engaging creative teams early in the development cycle through seamless integration with products like Adobe Illustrator and Pointcarré, businesses are able to create higher quality products in less time and with fewer clicks than ever before."

YuniquePLM centralises artwork in a single location, enabling individuals to share designs and styles easily throughout the upstream and downstream processes.
