TXT Product Lifecycle Management

More and more products to develop, but less time to work with? Fragmented information, communication challenges and chaotic workflows causing delays? Line Planning and creative perspectives not reconciled until too late in the cycle, leading to rework, expedited shipping and increased costs?


With TXT PLM, Fashion & Retail companies streamline the work and processes for all stakeholders: Merchandisers and Designers, Product Managers, Developers, Buyers and Suppliers. Its unique value sits in the ability to extend thorough PLM capabilities such as Creative design, Collection Development and Costing not only to Sourcing but seamlessly to Line and Retail Planning.




Why do global brands & retailers choose TXT PLM?

  Real time integration between Planning and Collection development: the solution responds to the mantra “design what sells and sell what you developed” bringing design closer to real demand. Design benefits from tangible insights into market demands, margins and strategic goals right from the earliest phases.
A full suite of PLM capabilities: TXT PLM provides end-to-end functional coverage. The flexibility of the solution (multi-product and multi-category including apparel, footwear, leather, and jewellery) as well as its scalability means the system grows with the business as it extends to new lines or geographies.
The most familiar working environment to users: the solution integrates with standard Microsoft tools such as Excel and PowerPoint, and design tools like Adobe Illustrator. Mobile technology is “inside” the core of collection development and planning enabling critical tasks to be performed “on the go”.


 

TXT PLM Delivers:

Line Planning: Line Planning and product development are seamlessly integrated. Number of styles, style colors, target margins and costs are properly communicated to product development teams meaning all functions are on the same page right from the beginning.

Trend Research & Fashion Design: TXT PLM supports the creative, inspirational phase of collection development with the ability it provides to capture images and ideas remotely through mobile and to make them immediately available to design. 

Collection Development: The centralization and management of all data generated by new collections is supported, such as technical drawings, colors, size specs, bill of materials, instructions for labeling/packaging, as well as sampling and production technical worksheets. These are accessible via web and mobile.

Sourcing and Collaboration: Suppliers can easily connect to the PLM database via the web portal, anytime anywhere. Sourcing is managed with specific functionalities for online negotiation and quotations requests; the mobile client supports offsite meetings with suppliers, giving the ability to update the buying plan while on the go.

Workflow and Calendar Management: The solution allows the allocation of tasks to users, their notifications via to-do-list or emails and the monitoring of their completion. Activities can be tracked by people, roles, collection calendars and actions taken.

Sales Catalogue Management: Once the collection is completed, catalogues can be created for mobile devices in a more intuitive and interactive way keeping the sales force up to date. Sales catalogues displays all information on linesheets, color options, lookbooks, pricelists, catwalk videos and multimedia. Everything is just a touch away.
