Lectra Fashion PLM 4.0 Gives Fashion Designers The Power Of Connectivity To Production Workflow


Paris, September 11, 2018 – Lectra, the technological partner for companies using fabrics and leather, announces the release of their latest PLM solution, Lectra Fashion PLM 4.0.

This enhanced version boasts several new features and tools that make it more readily connected and configurable, helping fashion companies work in a smarter and more agile manner in an  IT-friendly environment.

Based on 45 years of experience meeting customer needs, Lectra has identified connectivity and automation as key to helping fashion companies achieve operational excellence in a new era marked by digitalization.

 For the latest version of Lectra Fashion PLM 4.0, the company has developed  Lectra Easy Connect, a series of pre-configured connectors that allow the solution to interface with other IT systems such as ERP and CRM.

These connectors ensure data integrity by facilitating a smooth and consistent flow of data between internal and external supply chain actors.

 Lectra has also enhanced connection to the design process by strengthening Adobe Illustrator integration via a new plug-in.

Concretely, this means designers benefit from increased access to platform data like bitmap and PDF files and photographs, while continuing to work in their native environments. Access to consistent data stored on the platform and the freedom to work with familiar creative tools makes onboarding new designers much easier.
