Lectra Fashion PLM TEC certified7 January 2011
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions for industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics and composites—have announced January 5 that Lectra Fashion PLM V2R2, its product lifecycle management solution designed specifically for the fashion industries, has just been awarded certification of the Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC). Lectra Fashion PLM is the only solution to have achieved TEC certification in the fashion and fashion products and accessories distribution sectors.
Despite constant pressure to innovate and improve quality while maintaining profitability, some fashion companies remain reluctant to embrace product lifecycle management. The vast majority, however, are convinced it would streamline their organization and processes and improve productivity.
In addition to evaluating the solution in detail—1400 criteria were reviewed—the TEC certification report helps clarify the benefits of PLM and reassure companies about their investment decisions, while demystifying the processes and stages involved in setting up and maintaining PLM.
‘The certification report written by TEC for Lectra Fashion PLM is an excellent decision-making aid and confirms the solution's relevance for meeting the specific needs of companies in the fashion industry,’ said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. ‘The report provides a key to understanding PLM that will enable fashion companies to explore it without trepidation and to save time and gain confidence in identifying the ideal partner to support them in their project.’
