Zdesign packaged services for the apparel and footwear industry

Zweave Inc, a software and services provider for product lifecycle management (PLM) announced the availability of a suite of Zdesign packaged services for the apparel and footwear industry.

The four new Zweave packaged services offer varying degrees of customization and the option to mix-and-match services based on the customer's specific needs. The services will help accelerate PLM adoption while also streamlining the previously lengthy customization process.

“While the apparel and footwear industries are among the most aggressive when it comes to embracing PLM, there are varying degrees of success based on existing technology, skills and vendor service offerings,” said Laura McCann-Ramsey, president and CEO, Zweave. “The new services address this issue while eliminating the industry's current one size fits all proposition that isn't cost effective or realistic.”

The Zdesign packaged services offerings can cater to small- to medium-sized business (SMB) as well as scale to meet the needs of large enterprises. Specifically, the new services include the following.

Zdesign Out of the Box (OOTB) is an SMB offering that includes standard features and functions that are necessary to most organizations in the early stages of a PLM deployment. By taking advantage of Zdesign´s existing services that address a wide variety of business and technical needs, customers can more easily build the foundation for PLM on their own or with minimal technical assistance. Zdesign OOTB supports up to 150 users and focuses on the configuration of Zdesign´s five bundles that span the various stages of PLM including creative, sourcing, collaboration, marketing, and project management.

Zdesign Tailored Implementation (TI) services build upon the Zdesign OOTB Box offerings and extend these PLM capabilities by providing a customized scope of work and configuration quote for Zdesign consulting services. These services are recommended for SMBs with multiple brands, larger organizations with pre-defined scope and requirements or collaborative networks. Zdesign TI services help customers more accurately track their progress, stay within budget and more quickly realize a return on their PLM investments.

Zdesign Custom is suitable to larger organizations that require more extensive customization or are extending PLM to include integration into other environments such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

Additionally, Zweave is offering a la carte services for the following: PLM strategy, establishing a project management office, technical assessment delivery, 'as is' process verification, process definition, enterprise application integration, and custom report design.
