Chico's FAS to add Gerber webView

May '09
Chico's FAS, Inc. together with its subsidiaries, a specialty retailer of private branded, sophisticated, casual-to-dressy clothing, intimates, complementary accessories, and other non-clothing gift items under the Chico's FAS, White House | Black Market ("WH | BM") and Soma Intimates ("Soma") brand names has decided to implement Gerber Technology's webView application and upgrade to the browser enabled version of Gerber's webPDM to efficiently and effectively manage their product data.

Chico's FAS will use webView in conjunction with Gerber Technology's webPDM solution to enhance collaboration between vendors by providing a single source of data. Centralizing data will allow for accurate information to be gathered more quickly while reducing input redundancy and improving communications between all parties. Collaboration and productivity will be further enhanced through webView's fully integrated calendaring and task management capabilities resulting in a highly effective solution designed to provide maximum user visibility for the entire Chico's FAS team.

“We have been very happy with the existing Gerber products already in use at Chico's FAS and believe the addition of webView along with the upgrade to the new version of webPDM will enhance our productivity, collaboration and visibility capabilities. All of our data will be in one central repository, eliminating silos of information that typically reside in emails and Excel spreadsheets.” said Kevin McIntosh, Director of Application Development and Delivery, Chico's FAS.

Launched in October of 2008, webView is a component of Gerber Technology's PLM Software Suite for the fashion industry. During implementation, webView will be mapped to Chico's FAS business processes, while taking into account best practices in order to help them improve workflow, track fit samples, request quotes, calculate costing and gain heightened visibility through dashboards utilizing specific KPIs.
