My Unified Development & Sourcing

Protect the brand promise through a single version of the truth 

My Collection for Fashion enhances collaboration, speed and agility, and mitigates the risk of incorrect samples, bill of material errors, and late or failed product launches. With this industry solution experience, brands efficiently manage their supply chains with fashion PLM technology that improves their visibility, flexibility and time to market.

The retail ‘speed to market’ cycle continues to shrink every year increasing the pressure on supply chains to be as responsive as they are cost-sensitive. Yet, with creative design,  product development and sourcing teams often scattered across multiple sites, countries and time zones, lack of centralized information and workflow inhibits collaboration.

My Unified Development and Sourcing offers a single, unified environment to manage a fashion brand or retailer’s product development, sourcing, costing and pre-production processes. It connects internal and external stakeholders across all categories to a ‘single version of the truth’ from design to delivery thereby enhancing collaboration, speed and agility, and mitigating the risk of incorrect samples, additional costs and production errors or delays.

As businesses strengthen their brand footprint with new category launches, My Unified Development and Sourcing enables multi-category collection management in a single environment. With teams collaborating on a single platform, they spend less time chasing and re-entering disparate data and have more time to focus on developing and sourcing items to delight their consumers. Flexible line planning and placeholders create structure for designers when organizing product families.

Through close monitoring, fashion brands and retailers can see how well vendors meet expectations and reduce the risk of unplanned subcontracting to second-tier manufacturers that do not meet brand standards for product quality, or safety.
