Italian apparel firm New Twins selects Lectra's PLM suite

Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, has announced that Italian apparel company New Twins has chosen Lectra Fashion PLM to connect its product development team with the creative department at cashmere and knitwear brand Falconeri, part of the Calzedonia Group.

The apparel company develops and produces men's and women's knitwear for Falconeri, which is currently pursuing an aggressive plan to expand business internationally and increase its market share in Italy and across Europe. As the complexity and volume of orders increase, New Twins needed a way to improve workflow between its own teams and Falconeri's, so that the two companies can work together efficiently as one cohesive team.

New Twins will implement Lectra Fashion PLM in their technical and patternmaking office. The powerful solution allows design, development, and production teams to access the same version of a work in progress and communicate in real time on one common platform, so that they can collaborate effectively and make more informed design decisions. By eliminating redundant tasks and problems arising from miscommunication, the technology saves time and minimises errors so that companies like New Twins and Falconeri can get better products to market faster, according to a press release.

Stefano Modena, PLM system project manager, New Twins said, “Our development team is largely technical and follows a very different production model than the one Falconeri uses; we needed a reliable information system that would synchronise processes across different teams, different departments and even different companies. We looked at a few PLM systems but we chose Lectra, not just because their technology suited our needs, but also because we were impressed with the depth of their expertise and the way their recommendations took both people and process into account—they really considered the whole picture.”

Fabio Canali, managing director, Lectra Italy said, “New Twins needs a solution that will give them visibility over the entire collection lifecycle; this can be especially challenging when the clothing being developed is designed by a completely different entity. Connecting all the teams on Lectra Fashion PLM will help streamline the production cycle so that the company can waste less time going back and forth and focus on creating a quality product.” (GK)
