That emphasis on speed to innovation will enable Cabela's to introduce more Cabela's brand products to the assortment each season, thereby growing its overall brand in the US and globally.

By integrating business processes, workflow and data, PTC solutions are enabling Cabela's to increase fill rates and improve margins, thus supporting Cabela's core strategy of improving merchandising performance.

In selecting PTC solutions, Cabela's was particularly interested in the proven processes and practices enabled by its out-of-the-box capabilities. Being able to implement a comprehensive retail PLM system in a short period of time has allowed Cabela's to quickly realize value and reduce product cycle-time from ideation to commercialization.

"Being able to implement a best practices PLM solution out-of-the-box was crucial for us. By week three with PTC, we were already adding design content and adding much more to our apparel brand line."

"Now that their Apparel division has successfully implemented PTC Windchill - and immediately began to see the business benefits - we are excited to continue working with Cabela's to roll out to their Footwear and Hardgoods Products divisions so that they too can expand their lines and the overall Cabela's brand."

The PTC Windchill-based enterprise solution for the Retail and Consumer industries is designed to address both industry-specific challenges, as well as everyday business pressures. It offers a high-performance, Web-based platform that provides line planning, specification management, merchandizing, product development, sourcing, costing, quality and compliance with full supply chain collaboration capabilities for managing the complete product lifecycle.
