That emphasis on speed to innovation will enable Cabela's to introduce more Cabela's brand products to the assortment each season, thereby growing its overall brand in the US and globally.

"Being able to implement a best practices PLM solution out-of-the-box was crucial for us. By week three with PTC, we were already adding design content and adding much more to our apparel brand line."

"Now that their Apparel division has successfully implemented PTC Windchill - and immediately began to see the business benefits - we are excited to continue working with Cabela's to roll out to their Footwear and Hardgoods Products divisions so that they too can expand their lines and the overall Cabela's brand."
