Spanish womenswear manufacturer Happypunt has invested in a digitising solution from apparel software and systems supplier Gerber Technology to meet speed and Industry 4.0 trends.

The firm, which was founded in 1996 and is based in Barcelona, is a full-service design, development and manufacturer of womenswear.

It has selected Gerber's AccuMark 3D software and YuniquePLM to help reduce costs and time to market and integrate with its ERP system to provide efficiency in design and prototyping of products."

Happypunt has been using AccuMark pattern design, grading, marker making and production software since 2013. By adding AccuMark 3D and YuniquePLM, they achieve the additional benefits of seamless data transfer from one program to another, decreasing design time of products.

"The implementation of Gerber's AccuMark3D and YuniquePLM will help us to address consumer trends immediately, making sure to have the right style with the correct fit as demand changes," says Marta Bosch, chief operation officer at Happypunt. "We expect a relevant reduction in samples that would directly affect our manufacturing costs."
