YuniquePLM’s sourcing solution helps users effectively manage and collaborate with their global supply chain to ensure consistent product quality, cost and delivery
New York, NY, 0 8/22 /2013 – Yunique Solutions, creator of YuniquePLMTM product lifecycle management software, announces significant improvements to its integrated sourcing module within YuniquePLM. The integrated sourcing module streamlines the collaboration between in-house teams and global suppliers. Involving sourcing teams early in the product development process is essential to ensuring the delivery of the right product, on time and at the right cost.
Darioush Nikpour, vice president of Product Management for Gerber’s Yunique Solutions business said, “When redesigning our integrated sourcing module of YuniquePLM, our focus was to listen to the major issues facing sourcing teams and suppliers worldwide. Product development teams, production teams and global suppliers all need an intuitive tool, that’s easy to manipulate and provides streamlined communication between all players in the product development process. At Yunique Solutions, our team is always taking into account user feedback to constantly improve our PLM solution.”
With these newly added features, all relevant data can be linked to a supplier to facilitate the sourcing process. Users can manage multiple sourcing folders, add as many styles as required, and send as many requests for quotation as needed. Development teams can approve several quotes simultaneously and make commitments for production. Amongst the many newly added capabilities are:
- Relationship Management
- Compliance Tracking
- Create and Track CAP (Corrective Action Plan)
- Integrated Business Intelligence, Alerts and Dashboard
- Mass Sample Request
- Enhanced RFQ to Multiple partners
- Multi BOM capability
- Supplier BOM Option via srmOn
The YuniquePLM sourcing module provides users visibility into the production process in real time, enhances communication between in-house teams and trade partners to reduce production miscues, and improve speed to market with lower costs.
