Casual sportswear Adorn Fashions picks YuniquePLM software
Dec '13
After evaluating several solutions, Adorn Fashions, one of the fastest growing brands of casual sportswear for the petite, missy and plus-size markets, has chosen Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM software as a direct result of the Yunique team’s attention to the post-sales relationship.

“This is huge for us,” said Ricky Zinn, vice president and COO of Adorn Fashions. “We have experienced a lot of growth in the past five years and are looking to take our business to the next level with YuniquePLM. We noticed that as we grew, complexity increased: we spent more time looking and less time doing.

“Our previous method of storing separate Excel and Adobe Illustrator files in a repository is time consuming to organize, prone to errors and lacks accountability. In addition, searching within the repository favors one operating system over the other – furthering confusion. With Yunique Solutions’ out-of-the-box configuration, we were able to move through the first implementation phase as quickly as we have.” 

After Adorn Fashion’s early experiences searching for a PLM solutions provider, the company had strict requirements in selecting a solution. “We believed that by going with a one-stop-shop that combined both PLM and ERP solutions, we could save time and money; however, we found the opposite to be true,” noted Zinn.

“If a provider does not specialize in either of the platforms, the entire solution can be crippled. With YuniquePLM, you have PLM experts who understand and have experienced, first hand, the challenges faced by tech, design, costing and production teams.”

“We chose YuniquePLM because of the Yunique team’s focus on the post-sales relationship,” said Zinn. “To put it simply, successful implementation is the most crucial step, bar none, in having a successful PLM solution.”

“Many companies focus on the benefits of their solution without putting enough effort into realizing the client’s goals,” said Bill Brewster, vice president of Global Sales and Marketing for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business.

“PLM is a combination of technology, people and process – and all three components are absolutely crucial for successful implementation. Our team strives to excel in each of these categories and our experience with many of the world’s best brands, retailers and manufacturers enables us to deliver a truly world-class platform.

"We have worked alongside the team at Adorn Fashions from day one because a superior post-sale relationship is the foundation of the YuniquePLM solution and something we strive to offer each of our clients.”
