Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, has announced that CC Filson will install YuniquePLM In The Cloud software, allowing them to further both internal and external collaboration.
CC Filson is a Seattle-based privately-owned outfitter company that deals in designing, manufacturing, distributing and selling men’s and women’s outdoor clothing, accessories and luggage. The company selected Gerber’s cloud-based technology to shorten product development cycles and improve delivery time to market.
“We are now implementing YuniquePLM In The Cloud and are excited to have a process that allows our company greater visibility and effortless communication among our internal and external manufacturing teams. Having one source to manage all of our product development enables us to manage our calendars and costing more efficiently,” said Steve Bock, CEO of CC Filson.
The company is already using other Gerber Technology solutions including AccuMark® in their technical design and marker making department as well as GERBERspreaders™ and GERBERcutters® in their Seattle operations.
YuniquePLM solution along with AccuMark® enable CC Filson to increase efficiency of workflow. Images and information databases can be transferred from one system to the other with ease; and bills of materials (BOMs) can be initiated in AccuMark and saved to YuniquePLM, thereby accelerating product development.
“Working with Filson for product lifecycle management is a part of an integrated approach to drive innovation and increase speed to market from inspiration through to design and manufacturing. The ability to integrate is the basis of this great partnership,” said Bill Brewster, Vice President and General Manager, Gerber Technology.
