Developed with the unique requirements of fashion in mind, FLM 8.8 provides merchandisers and developers with new and improved features and functionality for greater visibility into product development, design and sourcing in the global marketplace.

With new items being introduced as often as weekly, apparel manufacturers are faced with the ongoing challenge of maintaining visibility and ensuring efficient interaction between the merchandising, design, and product development functions.

Gerber's FLM Workflow 8.8 is designed to help merchandisers connect in real-time with designers, suppliers and buyers throughout the development process, so that products can be created, managed, tracked and delivered efficiently and more cost effectively to the market.

“The enhancements in version 8.8 increase visibility throughout the organization. This makes FLM Workflow a decision tool for senior management, as well as a collaboration tool for product developers,” said Holly Beum, director of software product management at Gerber Technology. “Gerber continues to innovate and expand features to meet customer needs for increased efficiency throughout the value chain.”

• Workplace Menu – allows users to quickly link to their most frequently-accessed areas.
• Built-in Reporting Tool – enables users to create, filter, save and share detailed reports that provide views into all functions of the supply chain.
