Fearnley said, “I am excited with the opportunities that waiting at Simparel. While we are already recognized for our next-generation technology, we now look to leverage that advantage to bring an even greater value proposition to the industry through advanced PLM, ERP, and other capabilities as well as improved customer usability and visibility across the entire fashion enterprise.” (GK)
