Kenneth Cole picks YuniquePLM to manage product lines

Kenneth Cole Productions Inc., the iconic fashion house, has implemented Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM software for its men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel and footwear lines. Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business unit is helping Kenneth Cole manage its broad product portfolio by ensuring its many teams are able to collaborate and communicate optimally to increase speed and efficiency.

Kenneth Cole Productions is best known for its extensive footwear line; after all, the footwear business is how Kenneth Cole got its start. In 1982, rather than take a booth at the Hilton Hotel during the New York shoe show, Kenneth sought a creative alternative.

“In order to manage an operation of this size and diversity, it’s important to have everyone on the same page,” says Arthur Bargonetti, senior vice president of Operations, Kenneth Cole. “With YuniquePLM, we can avoid the holdbacks of small errors that snowball into larger ones due to miscommunication between our designers, sourcing teams and international vendors by having all of the information in a single location.”

Bill Brewster, vice president of Global Sales and Marketing for Yunique Solutions said, “We are thrilled to work with Kenneth Cole, one of the most prominent fashion brands in the industry.

For a company with so many product lines to keep track of, having the right information in a single location lends itself to making the best choice regarding everything from selecting raw materials, changing styles, or communicating a request with a vendor.” Brewster added, “The new additions in V5 of YuniquePLM makes life easier for designers, suppliers and vendors with added functions such as mobility, integration with Adobe and expanded sourcing and networking with partners.”
