Option Systems Limited (OSL), a specialist in the provision of IT solutions for the apparel and footwear industries, has announced that Bollman is implementing STYLEman PLM. Bollman is a leading headwear producer, which designs and produces headwear for major brands such as Timberland, Bailey, Kangol, Betmar, Country Gentleman, and Helen Kaminski.

Bollman will implement the world-leading PLM solution at its offices in the US and UK, as well as its sourcing facilities in China to give all parts of the organisation a single view of product development. Bollman currently use Freeborders PLM product but are replacing it with STYLEman PLM, which offers improved flexibility and support over their existing system. STYLEman PLM is the leading web-based product lifecycle management system that goes beyond the scope of typical PDM/PLM systems to give a complete overview of the range’s development. Powerful visual management options show the state of product range development at a glance, and flexible integration options allow easy integration of approved designs into commercial systems, the company said in a press release.

“Bollman looked at a number of competing systems when looking for a new PLM solution. But OSL’s STYLEman PLM product is a clear leader in functionality, is fully web-based and allows us to own our data. OSL also made it very easy for us to transfer our data from Freeborders and therefore implement the system vary rapidly,” Rich Bainbridge, information technology director at Bollman said.

“We need a system that allows all these individuals to collaborate and also to give management a view of how product development is progressing. STYLEman PLM acts as the repository for all the product development information, while giving management a visual overview of the whole process. STYLEman PLM is being rolled out across the organisation in July 2008. This marks a rapid implementation of less than two months across staff based in three continents. We developed STYLEman PLM specifically for companies like Bollman, who need a browser-based PLM system offering strong management controls and overviews of the Range. To win Bollman’s business we not only had to demonstrate that we have leading software, but also that we have excellent service and a commitment to enhance and improve our offering for the future,” Tony Parkinson, managing director at OSL said.
