Gerber's YuniquePLM to manage Consortio Fashion mail order business

Sep '11
Consortio Fashion Group AB (CFG) of Boras, Sweden has adopted Gerber Technology's YuniquePLM product lifecycle management software to help manage the complexities of its mail order business. In addition to managing details associated with images, raw materials, tech packs, samples, RFQs, line lists and assortment plans, CFG will rely on YuniquePLM to more closely manage relationships with suppliers and the many details related to its products and collections by catalogue page.

CFG publishes tens of catalogues per year that serve customers in a dozen markets within Europe through its Cellbes and Halens brands.

Mr. Karel Slusarcuk, CIO of Consortio Fashion Group AB, said, “After carefully evaluating nearly 20 suppliers of PLM software, we felt that Gerber Technology's YuniquePLM product was the best brand-wide assortment planning tool available to achieve our business goals. It will enable us to capture all steps of our assortment planning, from sketches to sales estimations and profitability analysis, in one location and will provide information to help us more effectively determine budgets, plan assortments, select suppliers, develop samples and control our overall workflow.”

Because YuniquePLM contains powerful functionality for business intelligence (BI), CFG will integrate YuniquePLM with its ERP system to access historical and current product performance that will assist managers in building reliable targets for new collections. YuniqueBI combines the power of an organization's enterprise platforms into one system. It generates dashboards and reports, displaying information in easy-to-read, highly- graphical formats that enable users to quickly go from a top-level summary of data to an in-depth analysis of the details.

Bill Brewster, president of Gerber Technology's Software Solutions business, said, “We are excited to expose all levels of the Consortio Fashion Group organization to the power of YuniquePLM and are confident that users will enjoy how easy it is to use and senior management will quickly realize a solid return on their investment.”

Gerber Technology is comprised of four businesses that serve distinct market segments. These include the Composites and Automation Solutions group which serves aerospace, fabrication and construction markets with ply cutting, laser templating and laser metrology solutions; the Global Software Solutions business which offers the world's leading product lifecycle management (PLM), product data management (PDM) and CAD automation solutions for the retail, footwear and apparel businesses; the Sewn Products Solutions business which provides textile cutting and spreading systems to apparel and flexible materials manufacturers in all regions of the world; and Gerber Innovations, North America's only full-line manufacturer of automated cutting hardware for the packaging industry. In all markets, Gerber's solutions significantly improve productivity and reduce costs.
