Gerber Innovates to Meet Personalization and the Need for Speed Challenges with AccuMark® Version 12 Launch
AccuMark Integrates Data from Design Through Manufacturing
Personalization, convenience and value: online and offline shoppers want it all. They expect brands and retailers to understand their needs and deliver new styles and trends faster than ever before. “To survive and more importantly thrive in today’s markets, fashion players need to improve their agility, speed and connectivity,” said Mary McFadden, VP of CAD Product Management, Gerber Technology. “Our Version 12 AccuMark Platform release delivers on these demands from product design and development to 3D sampling through optimized production planning and manufacturing.”
Collaborating across companies with large product lines helps decrease the time from design concept to store shelf. Technology for collaboration has evolved over time to help facilitate cooperation across product lines and geographies. “It was imperative with our upgrade from webPDM™ to YuniquePLM that collaboration continues to be easy and speed up product development,” Donna Kohring, manager, systems development for Totes Isotoner Corporation.
Global companies who work with many partners need a secure, flexible system to manage data across their business. “With such a large global product line, understanding milestones for the next season of garments is imperative to success and implementing YuniquePLM will allow us easy access to this data regardless of location,” stated Federico Pagnetti, chief operating officer, Citizens of Humanity.
