Spiegel goes deep in the supply chain with Yunique PLM

Yunique Solutions Inc reports that Spiegel Brands Inc, the leading U.S. direct marketer of women's apparel, is extending the use of its software solutions in support of a major corporate initiative aimed at speeding new products to market and enhancing its ability to meet fast-changing consumer demand.

Specifically, the apparel, footwear, accessories, and home products retailer is leveraging the collaboration and process management aspects of the Yunique software to tightly integrate independent vendors into new regional product teams that will perform all design-through-development processes in close proximity to Asian production facilities. By creating deeper, real-time relationships with its suppliers, Spiegel Brands expects to tap into greater product innovation, create operational transparency, and gain a more efficient and proactive supply chain.

Spiegel Brands implemented Yunique's web-based plmOn software in early 2006 to manage the merchandising, design, technical design, product development and sourcing functions in its Manhattan headquarters. This initiative was followed with the deployment of srmOn, the online collaboration component of the integrated system used to electronically integrate buying offices and trading partners in Hong Kong, Northern and Southern China, and India into the product lifecycle process.

“We needed a system built on amodern, open platform that provided for global collaboration”, noted Jose Sanez, director of technical design systems, processes, & calendars at Spiegel Brands. “Our old home-grown system would not allow us to connect outside of our headquarters. In Yunique, we found a great fit that allowed us to integrate our Mac-based designers as well as our entire universe of buying offices and trading partners. We can manage our apparel, footwear, home and accessories lines with this single solution. Not only can we create tech packs at triple the rate of before with the same number of people, we can now share them instantaneously online with our global teams.”
