Gerber to display YuniquePLM software at NRF

At the NRF Annual Expo in New York City next week, Gerber Technology’s Yunique Solutions team will demonstrate how its PLM software can help businesses of any size accelerate time to market, reduce lead time and improve margins. YuniquePLM enables retailers and brand owners to manage the details of line plans, tech packs and samples and simplifies communication with global partners to help get products to market faster, on time and at lower cost.

Darioush Nikpour, vice president of Product Management for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business, said, “Visitors to the show will see for themselves that YuniquePLM is far ahead in terms of delivering what industry analysts have identified as functionality that enables companies to achieve their strategic goals.”

Enhanced Integration with Adobe Illustrator

YuniquePLM now accelerates style and line creation by providing comprehensive integration with Adobe Illustrator, enabling bi-directional sharing of images and data. Designers using Illustrator on either the Mac or PC can open, edit and modify assets such as images, styles and color palettes in YuniquePLM without leaving Adobe Illustrator.

Dynamic Line Creation

Now, with enhanced touch capability, merchandisers and designers can drag and drop sketches and photographs and apply colors from an existing palette to create styles en masse, thereby drastically reducing product development time. With a preliminary line plan in place, merchandisers can easily calculate raw material consumption and costs, as well as labor requirements, to estimate the overall product cost early in the development cycle.

Nikpour added, “The powerful thing about YuniquePLM’s new line management capabilities is that, before designers even sketch a concept or generate a single piece of artwork, the team can gauge if the product is going to meet profitability expectations.”

Powerful “What If” Scenarios for Product Costing

With YuniquePLM’s powerful costing capabilities, companies of any size can understand the impact of design decisions very early in the process by generating multiple “what if” scenarios for comparison. For example, retailers submit preliminary fabric requirements to suppliers who, in turn, can propose more cost-effective options based on their experience. This capability encourages dynamic collaboration between brand owners and suppliers enabling them to analyze all product variables early in the development process.

Interactive Sample Capture

When it comes to facilitating sample approvals, YuniquePLM uses digital images to eliminate barriers caused by time zones and divergent languages. With an easy-to-use iPhone app, suppliers can now capture a 360-degree view of a sample on a model or mannequin and send these images with annotation and mark ups to brand owners via YuniquePLM. It eliminates the number of sample submits and courier charges and enables organizations to drastically reduce product development time and improve fit quality.
