“Together with Geometric's unique capabilities and understanding of PLM, Gerber Technology is better able to ensure that our customers can protect and extend the value of PLM across their entire enterprise.

Atul Dhakappa, Practice Head, Fashion Solutions at Geometric Limited goes on to say, “Gerber has been a prominent player in the fashion and apparel industry for over four decades, and we are very happy to be a member of their Certified Services Partner Program. This will provide Gerber's customers the opportunity to leverage a global services model.”

Dhakappa adds, “With our experience and capabilities in PLM integration services, we offer several unique opportunities to further leverage Gerber's PLM software suite throughout the apparel and flexible materials industry.”

Geometric has a unique methodology, D.R.A.P.E.D. that helps in accelerating PLM integration by over 25% for Fashion and Apparel customers.
