“We know our customers are looking for ways to improve speed and connectivity to support their creative process. Adobe Illustrator is a key tool for designers and product development teams. Our latest updates to the Adobe Plug-in and our new UI are a combined element of continually responding to customer input to create an optimal user experience with YuniquePLM,” Clayton Parker, director PLM product management at Gerber said in a press release. 


A deep understanding of the fashion design and development process drives Gerber’s customer-focused innovation process. For YuniquePLM and other Gerber software applications, this approach includes an open philosophy leveraging APIs for integration with key applications in their customers’ end-to-end processes. Adobe is one key example, as Gerber was the first major PLM provider to offer its Adobe integrations through the Adobe Exchange App Marketplace. Having YuniquePLM’s Design Suite integrations in the marketplace ensures users are always up to date with the latest releases for both Mac and PC. The latest update to Design Suite focuses on simplification and speed. 


The updated version has simplified drag and drop open for artboards. The ability to open any image within the plug-in so assets in YuniquePLM can easily be added to an active artboard in Illustrator. It also provides faster use of multiple file types. Users can now directly access and edit multiple file types within the plug-in – JPEG, PNG, TIFF, EPS, and Photoshop to name a few. This improves speed by reducing the need to edit files in multiple applications. 


The latest version has improved large image processing speed. Large files and multiple artboards can now be processed in the background, so a user can continue to work while their artwork is being published to YuniquePLM. (GK)
