NEW YORK, 24 Sep. 2020 / PRNewswire / – Today, Gerber Technology announces a new Transformation Initiative that makes a worldwide network of fashion experts available to help manufacturers, designers and retailers adapt and digitize to succeed in a post-COVID world.
COVID-19 continues to reshape the way we live, work, dress and buy clothes, highlighting the need for digitization, eCommerce and flexible working conditions, which require fashion companies to transform their supply chains. Every business is unique and Gerber understands that every business is at a different stage in its digital transformation.

To ensure a successful transformation, Gerber offers a free appraisal to help identify where a business is in its digital journey, enabling them to offer the right resources, expertise and guidance. For several months, Gerber has been a trusted advisor to business and process transformation, helping nearly 2,000 companies retool their processes to support the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) and digitize their supply chains.

We are here to help our customers. optimize their supply chain, work towards cost-saving goals and are well suited to take on the next evolution in their industry. “
COVID-19 has exposed inefficiencies across the fashion and clothing industry, highlighting the need for brands, retailers and manufacturers to evaluate and retool their processes. For fashion companies to succeed in this new era, they must focus very much on creating customer-friendly eCommerce experiences, reconfiguring their supply chains and increasing visibility, deciding which markets to focus on and looking for new opportunities for growth. Gerber consulting services partners with customers to assist them with each of these focus areas and empower them to reach the next level. By leveraging Gerber’s expertise and industry-leading technology, customers will build a strong digital backbone that will increase their agility and efficiency, enabling them to quickly respond to customer trends and market challenges.
To help their customers transform digitally, Gerber will rely on the power of their end-to-end integrated platform and support their customers as they make it happen in their own factories. With Gerber’s integrated solutions, fashion companies can take advantage of tools like AccuMark® and YuniquePLM® to fully connect their design space to the cutting room, enhance collaboration among their team, and build a strong eCommerce experience.
“When we wanted to implement a PLM solution, the head of IT said YuniquePLM is the Cadillac PLM system. It’s the best solution on the market,” said June Evans, Director of Technical Design at Filson. “We ended up choosing YuniquePLM because of its ease of use and integration with AccuMark. YuniquePLM is a tremendous asset and has been of great help over the past few months as we all adjust to working remotely.”
