Zweave, Inc., the leader in On-demand Product Lifecycle Management solutions for Apparel and Footwear product development organizations announced that C2m, a Hong Kong Based, Full Service Design and Manufacturing Service has selected Zdesign On-demand as it's PLM platform.

C2m provides fabric, print and trend direction, printing and CAD services and manufactures for leading U.S and European brands. C2m has subscribed to Zdesign On-demand's integrated product suite for trend, material, color, fit, design, sourcing, sampling, costing and production management.

“Zweave's software was built to manage a business like ours in which we collaborate intensively with the factory, suppliers and clients” said Tony Cooper, CEO of C2m. “We needed a PLM product that could support our intensely visual product development business. Our customers browse libraries of inspiration and move from concept to sample in a matter of days” says Cooper.

“In evaluating PLM software vendors to partner with our selection criteria included three key objectives: a scalable, flexible product that would take less then three months to implement, templates and processes that support apparel and a truly collaborative platform where our vendors, suppliers and customers can easily participate in the product lifecycle. Zdesign addresses these needs and we are excited that we can support our growth with best practices and a strong PLM foundation.”

“C2m's team understands product development and sourcing. They have worked with the biggest vertical retailers and manufacturers. This is a serious business where days make a difference. The end game is to behave like a vertical organization with your customers and partners and perform each time” says Laura McCann-Ramsey, Zweave's CEO. “Our approach to PLM allows our clients to deploy rapidly with a phased approach at a cost they can't beat.

Companies whose core competency is product development, marketing and distribution do not have to become technologists to implement PLM and spend enormous amounts of their budget, resources and time on implementing our software or buying licenses and hardware” says McCann-Ramsey. “We believe the market wants what they need, how they need it, when they need it. On-demand PLM delivers this and more.”

“Zdesign on-demand addresses the top five product development challenges of product development organizations: Easy to use and affordable software; Outsourced or in-house Hosting and Services; collaboration and accountability between merchandising, design, and sourcing activities; cost reduction of product development activities; and reduced product development cycle times,” says David Buck, Zweave's Chief Technology Officer. “As we support C2m and its extended development team we will change the way they work and give them efficiencies that have only been available to the largest players in the industry.”
