Carrefour opts YuniquePLM for creativity and efficiency

Jun '16
World’s second largest retail chain, Carrefour, has chosen Gerber Technology’s YuniquePLM to manage its large amounts of data and to unify its design and product development process.
 
Operating more than 12,500 retail operations in over 35 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, the French multi-national retailer offers a wide range of products, from apparel goods to kitchen appliances and fresh produce. 
 
With such a large network of retail partners and suppliers, Carrefour sought a platform to provide a single version of the truth for their private fashion label/brand Tex by understanding where products are from concept to consumer in the supply chain.
 
Organising product information in a common platform was one of the first steps in streamlining and optimising the economies of scale enjoyed by the retail giant’s impressive supply chain. For this, Carrefour looked to YuniquePLM for its strong integration with design tools and its ability to deeply integrate with their assortment tools. 
 
“With YuniquePLM’s Design Suite, Carrefour’s technical designers will be able to create, access and modify styles, colour palettes, images and, more directly in their design programme of choice, including Adobe Illustrator. Updates can be seen immediately within YuniquePLM. This integration reduces cycle time and fosters the adoption of the full development chain, while streamlining the entire process of delivering new products to market,” explained Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager of Enterprise SW Solutions.
 
“With YuniquePLM, we look forward to increase creativity, quality and productivity. We will communicate product specifications, technical drawings, tech packs and issue sample requests. YuniquePLM will serve as the fulcrum for Tex’s global supply chain. We have selected Gerber Technology for their in-depth knowledge of the French business landscape, combined with their expertise in integrating the tools used by our creative teams,” said a Carrefour representative.
