Aug '09
Gerber Technology, a business unit of Gerber Scientific, Inc and the world leader in automated CAD/CAM and PLM solutions for the apparel and flexible materials industry, announced details regarding its Eleventh Annual Software Users Conference.

The event, which is now open for registration, will be held October 8-9 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. This year's conference will focus on Gerber Technology's PLM and CAD solutions. Sessions will showcase how utilizing these products and processes can mean big improvements in efficiency and productivity as well as reduced waste – helping companies in the apparel and soft goods industries work toward their green initiatives.

Gerber Technology's Software Users Conference remains one of the largest events of its kind. Few other forums, trade shows or conferences are able to offer as many specialized sessions devoted to software trends, real-world applications, hands-on learning and case studies in the apparel industry.

“We are very excited about this year's users conference. We have many new products, processes and examples to share. This event will be highly educational and beneficial for all those attending,” said Bill Brewster, Gerber Technology's Vice President, Global Marketing and Product Management. “As always this venue allows us to interact face-to-face with our users – listening to their experiences, successes and recommendations.”

The 2009 event features all new sessions showcasing efficiency and productivity available to those in the apparel and soft goods industries. “Our goal this year is to illustrate how all our software products integrate with one another as well as with our customers business practices to ensure a more lean and streamlined workflow,” states Brewster. Sessions will be focused on two main areas, PLM and CAD. Multiple case studies will also be presented by Gerber Technology customers who have successfully implemented CAD/PLM software and have seen dramatic results in their business practices. Attendees will have the option to pick and choose sessions that are beneficial to their area of expertise and interest.

New session topics devoted to Product Lifecycle Management include hands-on training for webFolio, webView and webPDM. In addition Gerber Technology will provide sessions focused around business objectives serviced by its entire PLM software suite. Attendees will learn what's involved in PLM and how Gerber's suite addresses key areas affecting a company's bottom line. These include improved visibility, new approaches to costing, streamlining processes and connectivity within the Gerber PLM suite.

New sessions focused on Gerber's Computer Aided Design programs include those focused on pattern design, marker making, data sharing and collaboration, streamlining marker production with AccuNest, and the ever-popular, Ask the Expert discussion panel.
