Vilebrequin, the iconic swimwear brand, has selected Gerber Technology’s integrated solutions YuniquePLM and AccuMark CAD, to facilitate quick product development and centralise all information making it easily accessible to every member of the team. Gerber offers software solutions that help apparel customers improve their manufacturing and design processes.

Gerber Technology’s cloud-based PLM, YuniquePLM V8, was a key component in Vilebrequin’s decision to choose the data-driven industry leader. The cloud-based PLM offers easy access to regular updates, a renewed and easy-to-use user interface, and seamlessly integrates with an IT ecosystem, such as Adobe Illustrator through the Design Suite Plugin, allowing Vilebrequin to quickly import data from other systems into YuniquePLM. A major differential from the competition for Vilebrequin was Gerber’s 15 years of experience in their CEGID/Orliweb ERP integration, said the brands in a joint press release.

“After much research, it was clear that Gerber was the best solution on the market to digitalise and streamline our process to increase efficiency while improving quality and fit,” said Christian Roche, chief information officer at Vilebrequin. “The connectivity between their PLM and CAD solutions is unmatched, helping to not only reduce our time to market but also reduces costs and improves fit.”

“We are incredibly proud to welcome Vilebrequin into our Gerber family,” said Ketty Pillet, vice president marketing at Gerber Technology. “Vilebrequin has a rich history of offering the highest quality swimwear and we are excited to help them further enhance their product offerings.”

In addition to YuniquePLM, Vilebrequin will also be implementing Gerber’s industry-leading pattern design software, AccuMark 12.1, which is now available on a subscription basis in US and coming soon to Europe. With the seamless connectivity between AccuMark and YuniquePLM, Vilebrequin will be able to pass data throughout the supply chain, streamlining their workflow, improving fit and quality, and ensuring repeatability.  

“With developments of new territories, Vilebrequin is diversifying and increasing its offer which meant we needed to improve our communication amongst our team,” said Aurelie Tondella, merchandising & strategic planning manager at Vilebrequin. “We are confident that YuniquePLM, as well as Gerber’s deep understanding of the process, will facilitate our way into making Vilebrequin the lifestyle brand it can be with regular novelties in our stores and online.”

“We are excited to work with a company that understands the value of delivering a quality product,” said Roche. “Gerber’s expert knowledge and professionalism are what truly sets them apart from the competition and we are proud to partner with them.” (PC)
