YuniquePLM is a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution specifically designed for the retail, apparel, and footwear industries. YuniquePLM connects and streamlines collaboration between your design teams, production teams, agents, vendors, and factories that ultimately help companies deliver the right product, at the right time and at the right cost.

Data is presented in a highly visual manner, providing answers to big questions at a glance and ultimately saves time that would otherwise be spent on amending or creating spreadsheets and graphs. YuniquePLM was developed by industry professionals with practical experience in manufacturing, ERP, product development, warehouse management, and other integrated apparel systems.
For market and customer-oriented products, the customers or their body size and volumes must become part of the development process. This is achieved with technology by Human Solutions ― directly in CAD. We have developed innovations which today are taken for granted all over the world in the Mobility and Fashion sectors ― innovations like the simulation and examination of vehicle interiors with our human model RAMSIS or the use of 3D body scanning for serial measurements. It has always been our goal to increase the efficiency of your development processes together with quality, comfort and safety. Today in Mobility, we’re already working hard to adhere to standards at the early computer model stage. And in Fashion, we integrate the human being in 3D directly into product development, sales and marketing.
Arun Joshi, Founder and CEO of Visulon, realized three years ago that the product release process for large brand names require a platform that is intuitive and cutting-edge which would offer ‘visualization’ of the images, videos, 3Ds along with all the attribute data, as the New Products emerge from the design board. His vision was focused on having a cloud based, database driven, real-time product master-data enabled for Go-To-Market operations. Idea was to give full visibility to the new products for companywide ‘Brand Reviews,’ ‘Line Planning sessions,’ ‘key customer presentations’ using beautifully put together Custom Assortments, Workbooks, Merchandizing plans and pre-season order planning meetings versus using Excel spreadsheets, PDFs, Photoshop displays that make things difficult to organize. Key goal was to speed time-to-market and improve process efficiencies. Going forward, large Global brands like Coach, Bauer Hockey, Mizuno etc. have signed on with Visulon. Now Visulon platform integrates with PLM and ERP systems through custom webservices. iPad and Android Apps make it easier to reach the last mile. On the new technology front Visulon is aggressively working on incorporating voice, touch and augmented reality (Oculus). Meet us in the booth.
