CBR Fashion Group implements YuniquePLM

CBR Fashion Group, Germany-based supplier of fashionable womenswear, has successfully implemented YuniquePLM, the industry-leading PLM solution from Gerber Technology, to support fast fashion process including supplier collaboration.
 
CECIL and Street One—both CBR brands—have successfully handled the first collection with YuniquePLM, Gerber said in a statement. Nearly 90 internal users and around 60 agencies and direct suppliers were integral part when the PLM went live.
 
Starting from collection briefing, followed by image management, sample requests, tech pack, RFQ and final approval of styles—the entire fast fashion development process is supported by YuniquePLM, the statement said.
 
A lot of email communication has been eliminated by having all agencies and direct suppliers communicating via the supplier portal srmOn. Now sample comments, supplier quotes and sample shipping information are being feeded into the PLM system instead of being communicated by email.
 
CBR Fashion Group has chosen a best of breed approach from the beginning: YuniquePLM has been integrated with other new business solutions such as ERP and SCM having been implemented in parallel. Along with that implementation concept all systems, brands and departments had to go live in the same collection development cycle. Gerber's team of international experts worked closely with the CBR Fashion Group project team to ensure a smooth transition.
 
“Because YuniquePLM is a well organised, structured system and also the vast experience Gerber's Professional Services contributed to system implementation, we were able to fulfill our indeed ambitious goals from the scratch,” said Gilbert Passarotto, CBR program manager.
 
“We are pleased to add CBR Fashion Group to the portfolio of users among the world's leading fashion brands and look forward to continue working with their highly professional team as we improve our solution,” stressed Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager, Enterprise SW Solutions. 
 
Gerber Technology is a world leader in integrated digital software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, and supports fast-fashion design and the development process of their customers around the world and streamlines collaboration with their agencies and suppliers.
