Designers, brands, retailers and manufacturers strive to stay ahead of fashion trends and meet customer demands and expectations for personalisation and sustainability.
In order to support the users in the race so as to keep up with what’s now trending, Gerber recently announced the release of major update to Design Suite, their Adobe Illustrator Plug-in.
More on the same, Clayton Parker, Director, PLM Product Management, said, “We know our customers are looking for ways to improve speed and connectivity to support their creative process. Adobe Illustrator is a key tool for designers and product development teams. Our latest updates to the Adobe Plug-in and our new UI are a combined element of continually responding to customer input to create an optimal user experience with YuniquePLM.”
A thorough understanding of the fashion design and development process drives Gerber’s customer-focused innovation process. In case of YuniquePLM and other software applications, this approach includes an open philosophy leveraging APIs for integrating the key applications in their customer’s end-to-end process.
Gerber being the first major PLM provider, offers its Adobe integrations through the Adobe Exchange App Marketplace. Also having the YuniquePLM’s Design Suite integrations in the marketplace ensures users are always up to date with the latest releases for both Mac and PC. The latest updated version of the Design Suite primarily focuses on simplification and speed.
The key features of the new platform include Simplified Drag and Drop open for Artboards that enable the users to open any image within the plug-in so that assets in YuniquePLM can be easily added to an active artboard in Illustrator.
Another feature that has been incorporated in the updated version is faster use of multiple file types where the user can now directly access and edit multiple file types within the plug in such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, EPS and Photoshop thus improving the speed by reducing the need to edit files in multiple applications.
In addition to this, large files and multiple artboards can now be easily processed in the background so that a user can continue to work while their artwork is being published to YuniquePLM.
Parker stated that “Our cloud deployment model is enabling us to launch updates and new features every few weeks. We have developed a great partnership with Adobe and our rapid deployment model ensures that we are ready to incorporate new Adobe releases for seamless integration with YuniquePLM.”
