FREMONT, CA: Gerber Technology, the prominent provider of integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, announces its alliance with Helly Hansen to upgrade their Gerber Technology webPDM™ software solution to Yunique In The Cloud.

Gerber Technology delivers software and automation solutions that help apparel and industrial customers improve their manufacturing and design processes and more effectively manage and connect the supply chain. On the other side, Helly Hansen develops its apparel through a blend of Scandinavian design and insights drawn from living among some of the harshest environments on earth.

Helly Hansen has been using Gerber Technology's webPDM and AccuMark® to enhance collaboration between vendors by providing a single source of data as well as a tool to efficiently manage their product data. Migration from webPDM to Yunique In The Cloud brings along added benefits, including additional flexibility, accessibility of information from any location and performance enhancements via a secure, always-on infrastructure hosted by Amazon Web Services.

"We look forward to continuing our relationship with industry experts like Gerber Technology and believe that by upgrading to the cloud, we will gain additional collaborative and visibility capabilities,” said Helly Hansen IT Director, Trine-Lise Jensen. “All of our data will be located in a secure, central repository, eliminating the need for costly back-up servers or silos of information that typically reside in Excel spreadsheets and emails."

"The decision to upgrade from webPDM to Yunique In The Cloud will provide the opportunity for increased collaboration and expansion of their current capabilities," said Bill Brewster, vice president and general manager of Enterprise SW Solutions. "We are excited for Helly Hansen to see the business benefits that come from using cloud technology."
