Infor announced an enhanced version of Infor PLM Runtime, its comprehensive product lifecycle management software for manufacturers in the apparel and footwear industries. The latest version of PLM Runtime has standard integration capability with client-side Microsoft Outlook to enable a collaborative design environment across the supply chain without heavy IT overhead and help companies get new products to market faster.

PLM Runtime's integration with Outlook mail improves an apparel and footwear manufacturer's ability to design new products and collaborate with suppliers by allowing users to share drawings and style information via e-mail from the PLM software. Suppliers and partners are able to review the information, make changes and efficiently respond to the original user, who can reconcile the changes in PLM Runtime.

"Where apparel companies used to introduce new products only once a season, they are now continually bringing new products to the market to keep up with the ever-changing styles and trends that consumers demand," said Rory Granros, director, solution marketing, process industries, Infor. "The enhancements to PLM Runtime enable apparel and footwear manufacturers of all sizes to collaborate with suppliers in the product design process so that they can keep up with the speed of fashion, while keeping IT costs low, which is especially crucial in a down economy."

Additional enhancements in PLM Runtime version 4.7 include improved usability and functionality. The software has increased color capabilities to help in the design of products with multiple color schemes, and users of the system are now able to take advantage of tree menus which simplify the location process for multiple articles.
