At the PI Apparel 2015 Conference held in New York on June 23 and 24, guest speakers from Aeropostale and Randa Accessories spoke about the benefits of PLM for businesses.

In a press release, Gerber Technology said Meg Munits, director of application development at Aeropostale, and Robyn Howard, senior PLM manager at Randa Accessories delivered presentations.

The annual conference attracts many of the world’s leading fashion, apparel and footwear brands and executives.

Over the two-day event, industry experts discussed how modern technology can help address opportunities and challenges surrounding product lifecycles.

Meg Munits spoke on a topic titled ‘How Can PLM Help Facilitate Fast Fashion?’ on June 23 at 11:15 a.m. in Room 1 at the Union League Club.

Munits shared insights on how Aeropostale is leveraging YuniquePLM to shorten cycle times by centralising and sharing data.

Implementation of the software with the company’s cross-functional product development teams enabled Aeropostale to bring its collections, namely the Bethany Mota line, from concept to delivery in a matter of months.

On June 24, Robyn Howard from Randa Accessories delivered a lecture on the session ‘How can PLM Facilitate a Truly Global Brand?’

In the session, delegates learnt how global companies are able to navigate uncertainty, innovate and adapt to changing realities as well as new market opportunities.

“Randa Accessories, the leader in lifestyle accessories, has taken a comprehensive and enthusiastic approach to align the people, processes and technologies across its departments in 11 countries,” Gerber informed.

According to Gerber, YuniquePLM is web-based product lifecycle management software that helps the fashion and apparel industries communicate effectively, accelerate workflows and eliminate errors.

“Its latest enhancements include a new development calendar and line planning function, as well as 3D file support and mass sample request development,” it added.

For nearly 50 years, Gerber Technology has been providing integrated solutions to help its customers automate and more effectively manage product design and manufacturing processes in apparel and industrial segments.

The company serves 25,000 customers, including more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, in the apparel, retail, composites, packaging, technical textiles industries in 130 countries.

Based in Connecticut, Gerber Technology is owned by Vector Capital, a San Francisco-based, global private equity firm specialising in the technology sector that manages more than $2 billion of equity capital. (AR)
