Feb '10
Gerber Technology, a business unit of Gerber Scientific, Inc. and a world leader in automated CAD/CAM and PLM solutions for the apparel and flexible materials industry, announces the release of webPDM version 6.1. This newest release of webPDM provides highly visual and intuitive user interface (UI) features used to manipulate, display and analyze data and is available as a free download for customers with software subscription contracts.

webPDM is an industry standard Product Data Management (PDM) application used by more than 1,000 brands, retailers, manufacturers and educational institutions globally. In line with Gerber Technology's recent PLM acquisition and its commitment to protect and extend its customers' investments, the webPDM product will continue to receive enhancements, maintenance and support.

“This latest release of webPDM introduces some very user-friendly features,” says Elizabeth King, Gerber Technology's Director, Software Applications. “We're always listening to our customers to determine what they want and need, and as a result, we've incorporated some compelling new UI elements. These include copy/paste functions, permitting users to work more proficiently in multiple areas of the software, efficiencies in the way users print, and improved navigation and visibility throughout the system.”

webPDM 6.1 also features an attractive and intuitive online help capability that includes content, index and search capabilities to make locating information fast and easy. The online help provides users with self-service help on-demand and reduces companies' internal support demands. In addition, the online help feature can be customized and made accessible through a company's own specified URL.

“As our clients, our company and our PLM product line evolves, we remain steadfast and focused on our commitment to protect and extend customers' investments in our technology,” comments Bill Brewster, VP of Gerber Technology and head of Gerber's Software Systems Group.

In addition, webPDM 6.1 includes the tremendously popular version 6.0 features such as linked pages and folders, the design centric component wizard for raw material and bill of materials (BOM) development, as well as the AccuMark measurement importer used to streamline the flow of information from patterns to specifications.
