Gerber Technology and its onsite distribution partner, IIGM, recently hosted full day conferences at New Delhi and Bangalore, revolving around Gerber’s message ‘Embrace Your Digital Reality’. The events displayed integrated automation technology solutions to Indian fashion firms, apparel manufacturers, and sourcing managers from garment segments.

Almost 100 decision makers from approximately 55 companies, most of them already using Gerber hardware and software, attended for the opportunity of live introduction on how to optimise production planning for utmost efficiency and material yield, Gerber said in a press release. As displayed by his in-depth demonstration, with its new version 11 AccuPlan software allows further substantial production and material cost reductions, according to Rodolfo Ramirez, product management at Gerber. The powerful spread and cut planning tool enhances production efficiencies and performance by up to 85 per cent in automation process time.

“To keep up with fierce competition and to stay on top of the game innovative tools, integrated processes, and reliable tech-and service partners are the pre-requisite,” Michael Lock, director global business development, Gerber Technology said.

He then rolled out how product lifecycle management (PLM) best practices can help maximise profit opportunities and lower inventory risks. Gerber’s YuniquePLM is web-based product lifecycle management software that helps the fashion and apparel industries communicate effectively, accelerate workflows and eliminate errors.

“With its version 7 YuniquePLM is also available as a software subscription in the cloud. “Furthermore Gerber is the only PLM provider that offers a free online trial without any commitment or heavy setup and installation,” Lock said during one of the conferences.

With YuniquePLM V7, any user administrator can configure the application to match their business needs. They can create or hide fields and drag-and-drop fields across the application with a few simple clicks. YuniquePLM V7 is highly configurable, making it easy to use, so companies can implement it faster to achieve optimum results.

How 3D technology addresses critical needs across the entire product lifecycle from sampling, to sourcing, to fit and ecommerce – an overview on Gerber’s AccuMark 2D-3D solution – represented the final highlight of an exciting conference day. (GK)
