This will provide Gerber's customers the opportunity to leverage a global services model.”

Dhakappa adds, “With our experience and capabilities in PLM integration services, we offer several unique opportunities to further leverage Gerber's PLM software suite throughout the apparel and flexible materials industry.”

Geometric has a unique methodology, D.R.A.P.E.D. that helps in accelerating PLM integration by over 25% for Fashion and Apparel customers.
