The evaluation conducted analyzes distinct criteria including: supplier competencies and industry knowledge; PLM solution technical benchmark; roadmap and development; executive vision and customer feedback.
YuniquePLM garnered two 4-star ratings in creative design for CAD and creative design for CAM in the evaluation giving homage to its integration with industry-leading software AccuMark® pattern design, marker making, grading and production planning software. This rating is the first in the WhichPLM evaluation history.
"YuniquePLM is key to our digital solutions offering and our vision of an integrated apparel supply chain," said Karsten Newbury, vice president and general manager, software solutions.
