Deliver Your Products On-Trend, On-Time, On-Cost
The consumer lifestyle products industry is fast-paced and ultra-competitive. Companies are continuously challenged to deliver greater product innovation and value. To meet frequent shifts in consumer demand, global supply chains must anticipate and respond with faster, more efficient, cost-effective operations and products.
As companies drive to be smarter, leaner and more agile, product design, development and sourcing present opportunities for improved lead time and cost reduction.
Improved collaborative teamwork, increased process visibility and real-time information flow are critical to respond to changing industry needs, support better informed business decisions and succeed in today’s omnichannel environment.
PLM Redefined for Changing Industry Needs
BlueCherry® PLM is a best-in-class product lifecycle management solution for Apparel Fashion, Accessories, Lifestyle and Footwear Brands, providing a comprehensive set of tools to manage your entire product lifecycle.
In addition to core product data management (PDM), bill of materials (BOM), technical specifications and other commonly available PLM tools, BlueCherry PLM draws from its enterprise solution heritage to deliver a broader set of integrated line planning, design, product development, sourcing and production capabilities to meet the demands of today's rapidly changing marketplace.
These and other ‘extended PLM’ capabilities better equip companies to streamline processes, gain greater visibility and control over collections, enhance collaboration across in-house and global supply chain operations and bring new, profitable products to market—faster.

Integrated Platform for One Version of the Truth
Lack of business and process visibility—both internally and with global supply chain partners—can lead to missed trends, missed deliveries and high product and operational costs.
BlueCherry PLM provides one version of the truth for the details and status of each product under design and development by centralizing and managing design images, product and raw materials development, purchasing and sample approval. Underpinned with end-to-end workflow tracking, the result is a decrease in iterations for samples and prototypes, reduced administrative tasks and data entry, increased efficiency and overall greater speed and agility.
