Sometimes, the hardest part of the job for any stakeholder involved in the product development process is finding product data they need. When spreadsheets are used to automate the process, tracking changes becomes difficult. Searching, updating and consolidating data becomes all consuming. And, mistakes get made.
Maybe you are familiar with our industry-leading footwear PLM application, SoftShoe, which leverages product data by making it available for collaboration and use across the extended enterprise. It brings together developers globally as well as other personnel and departments who manage material requirements, cost, sales and marketing – and extends commercialized product data right through to production order and status, inspections and outbound logistics. How different is SoftShoeStyle?:
- Designs are stored at Style-level, not colorway-level
- Use of latest technologies nearly eliminates need for support from IT
- Process-rules are simple and built-in
- The interface is simpler and more intuitive
