Gerber YuniquePLM to manage Artextyl day-to-day operations
Mar '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, announced that YuniquePLM has been selected as the product lifecycle management solution for Artextyl, a leading designer, importer and distributor of men's, women's, and children's garments for the casual and outdoor markets.

“Faced with increased pressure from our customers and partners to reduce delays, strengthen quality levels and increase supplier collaboration, YuniquePLM emerged as the clear favorite,” stated Artextyl owner Mr. Alain Harfi. “Each area of YuniquePLM's software including collection and line planning, product development, task management, and cost control will have a positive impact on our day-to-day operations. We are extremely impressed with Gerber's YuniquePLM product and feel that it is an ideal fit for us,” added Harfi.

Because artwork, color and high-performance textile development are key factors to the success of the Artextyl brands, YuniquePLM's process-centric design allows individual teams to begin, develop and track their activities in the area of the system that most suits their needs. The embedded Pantone library offers great appeal to the color team while the image catalogs are an instant win with design, sales and marketing. Controlling and managing costs is vital to the success of any company and the highly visible and collaborative quote-, material-, and sample-management features will provide the tools necessary to allow Artextyl to not only be competitive, but keep and grow their leadership position within their market.

“The intuitive user interface was also an instant win for us,” explained Mr. Y. Schlezinger, Artextyl's IT Manager. “After the first demo we immediately knew our design and development staff would rapidly adopt the system and we would see immediate effects in the reduction of time required to go through the development and sampling cycles.”

Bill Brewster, VP of Gerber Technology and head of Gerber's Software Systems Group, commented, “We are excited to work with Artextyl as they integrate YuniquePLM into their day-to-day operations, offering them the opportunity to increase their competitive position in the marketplace.”
