Gerber launches Yunique Solutions business unit
Oct '12
Gerber Technology has established the Yunique Solutions business unit to underscore its commitment to deliver integrated software solutions for product design, development and sourcing for the retail, footwear, apparel and accessories industries. Central to the Yunique Solutions business are YuniquePLM product lifecycle management, webPDM product data management and AccuMark pattern design, grading and marker making software systems.

"Our software solutions are centered on helping fashion-oriented companies improve product quality, cost, timeliness and predictability of product development and delivery," said Donny Askin, general manager of the Yunique Solutions business. "But, above all else, our customers rely on us for our unparalleled industry and process expertise. With more than three decades of experience, we can offer them best practices gathered by collaborating with many of the world's most recognized and successful brands." 

For 25 years, Gerber has helped tens of thousands of companies, educational institutions and government organizations around the world design and grade patterns more efficiently and create optimized markers with the AccuMark software system.

Gerber's YuniquePLM software enables retailers to bridge the creative process and the product delivery process to ensure the right products are on store shelves at the right time and for the right cost. With AccuMark and YuniquePLM working in tandem, users can import data on material yields and points of measure from the AccuMark system and use them to generate costing and product tech packs in YuniquePLM. This information exchange eliminates redundant work and minimizes errors that often occur between the creative and development teams.

"When we develop the roadmap for our software products, we focus on what fashion companies need to be successful," added Askin. "That's why we can offer the best time to value – the shortest time between purchasing our product and using it effectively. It's why we ensure our customers can easily integrate YuniquePLM with existing enterprise-wide systems, why we strive to maintain the easiest-to-use interface and why we've integrated our YuniquePLM system with other leading design tools like Adobe Illustrator graphic design software and the PANTONE library and color matching system."

YuniquePLM is the recipient of the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Fashion Product Lifecycle Management Product Leadership Award which recognizes the PLM system that scores highest on product features and functionality, innovation, product acceptance in the marketplace and customer value enhancements.

Gerber Technology will showcase the latest advancements in its software offerings during ideation 2012, the company's annual software conference taking place Oct. 22-23 at the Montelucia Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz. Marshal Cohen, a well-known expert on consumer behavior, will deliver the keynote speech. In addition to panel discussions, hands-on workshops and product demonstrations, several leading retailers will offer insight into how they use Gerber's software solutions to bridge their product design and development processes with their sourcing, product delivery and profit generation strategies.
