How does your software foster speed in product lifecycle management?

It fosters speed by being a single version of truth, while enabling system users on both the client-end and partner-end to have access to information quickly and easily. YuniquePLM allows customers to work simultaneously across various functions such as planning, design, tech design, sourcing, etc. It also allows better collaboration internally and externally with supply chain partners. We reduce time in the sampling process by our ability to do virtual sampling by visualising and annotating with online communication tools. YuniquePLM eliminates the possibility of errors by ensuring people have the most up-to-date data and everyone is working off the latest design changes. Our workflow and calendar tools manage workflows to allow very high level of visibility of everything in the process by seeing all the steps to identify issues and make corrections or adjustments for better management of the critical path.

What features do you expect to integrate in the coming years in your PLM software?

We have now made YuniquePLM cloud-enabled to serve our customers, and will continue to integrate more with our CAD and other Gerber solutions to streamline the product lifecycle process. We will use our customer's feedback to enhance our industry-leading user experience.

What are your financial targets for the year 2015-16?

The company prefers not to release financial targets for the year.

How was your fiscal 2014-15?

Our growth continues to move forward with more than 130 YuniquePLM customers around the world, including the 23 customers added in 2014. We continue to lead the industry, and be the preferred choice for PLM in the fashion industry.
