As a business with an important PLM project on the horizon, you might wonder how PDP’s apparel PLM consultancy services can help to add value to and streamline your selection and implementation processes.

We provide a wealth of consultation services and advice specific to the fashion industry, all informed by our firsthand knowledge of the available solutions and our track record of successful implementations. Having worked with the creators of the original 1987 ‘spec solution’, the first product data management (“PDM”) system, and the first true PLM solution (which at the time was known as CPM or Collaborative Product Management) – we understand PLM and PDM from the foundations upwards, and we aim to do for your business the same thing we have done for more than 150 of the leading retailers, brands, manufacturers and agents within our industry; help you to realise the true value of your software investments through our tried and tested methods.

The PDP (or Product Development Partners) team is comprised of specialists in design and development, marketing and technology. Their firsthand insights into each stage of the product development process ensure that we can find the best possible solution, tailored to fit the strategic objectives and to meet the challenges of your business every step of the way. We aim to help all of our clients achieve real value by seamlessly integrating new technologies in line with their business objectives, specialising in the introduction of new processes to help optimise their ways of working. Our team are also working on developing unique sets of PLM reference data that will enable us to shave months off the average implementation period.

Despite our close and productive working relationships with major companies, we own our own thoughts. Our advice is completely unbiased, and it does not end there; we have guided each of our clients closely the whole way – from that daunting initial choice through to sign-off on the implementation of their new solution, on time and within budget, every time.
