Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, announced today that Trox AB has selected YuniquePLM to help get control of their entire product development process.

Trox AB supplies the automotive industry with vehicle protection systems. The tailor made covers are delivered ready for application directly to a specific vehicle model. These protection systems are currently designed for each vehicle model requested without using previous styles as a starting point. 

“Implementation of a PLM system we can search to utilize previous styles will result in a major time savings when beginning a new cover design,” said Pontus Lindbom, CEO, Trox AB. “The ability to have transparency within YuniquePLM will allow us to communicate consistently throughout the entire product development process ensuring quality to one of the most demanding industries.”

“YuniquePLM will enable a decrease in Trox’s product development time, all while controlling product quality,” said Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager, enterprise software solutions for Gerber Technology.“The software is highly configurable enabling Trox to control various inputs throughout the supply chain and communicate them across the organization.”
