Zweave and TransWeave announce ground-breaking partnership
Dec '08
Zweave Inc. and TransWeave, Inc. have developed a proprietary methodology for rapid, inexpensive and enterprise-wide implementation of seamless PLM / ERP combined software solution for apparel retailers and manufacturers. TransWeave's apparel domain and implementation expertise join with Zweave's SaaS PLM and SAP ERP Apparel Footwear Solutions (AFS) to provide a powerful best in class industry-specific, end-to-end solution for Product Lifecycle Management.

“TransWeave's initial business model was to provide implementation of SAP's ERP IS Retail and Wholesale Distribution and manufacturing solution for our apparel retail and manufacturing clients,” said Mumtaz Kutty, TransWeave's CEO. “Our clients quickly told us that they wanted more. They wanted an end-to-end solution, one that managed seasonality, trends and everything from Concept to Design (PLM), as well as planning and execution.

We chose Zweave's PLM because, more than any other option in the market, it is easy to use, easy to implement and it is designed specifically for the apparel industry.”

Laura McCann, Zweave's CEO states, “By partnering with Transweave, we have found an exciting and beneficial way to serve the midsize manufacturer and retailer of apparel. These organizations need the seamless interaction of ERP and PLM – a total solution for integrating information technology across the entire product lifecycle at the right cost and with minimal disruption to the business.

Transweave offers the full capabilities of SAP at a cost the industry can afford and implements within months. Our implementation methodologies and solution footprint align perfectly to give maximum benefit to the 1000's of companies who have never been served by world class PLM or ERP before”.

The current challenging and competitive economic times call for cost-effective integrated solutions with no disruption to the enterprise. Delivered On-Demand (a pay as you go pricing structure), Zweave's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software provides an easy to use platform for apparel design, development and sourcing.

Transweave's seamless integration with SAP's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for Apparel and Footwear Solution (AFS) software allows companies to maximize efficiencies and take advantage of automation, collaboration and visibility across the entire product lifecycle from planning to sale.

Zweave's solution consists of 16 modular “studios” that work seamlessly together while allowing for segmentation of work by task and job function. The results are an easy to use system that is both efficient and powerful. Zweave PLM has complete functionality in trend, merchandising, color, fabric, material, fit, design, graphics, packaging, samples, costing, vendor management, production, marketing materials and showroom.

Data from across the entire system seamlessly flows back and forth into SAP providing the data that the ERP system relies on for advanced sourcing, costing, supply chain management, and financial planning.
