We understand your business
Pure PLM's apparel, footwear and accessories consultants have extensive experience working in and with the industry.
Our practical knowledge of the apparel, footwear and accessories industry enables us to understand your business, from the constant demand to stay relevant in an increasingly competitive global retail market, to the challenges unique to your organisation. Pure PLM's powerful combination of industry and IT expertise enables us to effectively analyse your current operations and recommend best practice business processes that support the implementation of leading edge PLM technology.
If your company is involved in the design and development of textile, fashion and footwear, or requiring tighter integration of your supplier community, and are thinking of PLM or have implemented PLM and would like to accelerate the benefits, we can help you.
We can help streamline your operations
The biggest challenges in today’s market are:
- Management and analysis of information
- Design driven
- Speed to market
- On line retailing
- Streamlining costs
- Management of a geographically dispersed team
Our first step is to work with you to review your current business processes, technology, timelines and management structures. We make recommendations for improvement, taking into account your company strategic plans
- What are the company’s goals?
- Where to do you want to be in 12 months, 5 years?
We can then assist you in reviewing, selecting and implementing the right PLM solutions for your business, whether that is new processes, technology, or optimising existing technology.
We are able to plan, manage and lead the evaluation process independent of the business, minimising the impact on the day-to-day management. The evaluation of current processes requires independent analysis. Our experienced Pure PLM consultants are able to look beyond the way it has always been done, reducing the political noise surrounding a project.
The biggest challenge when embarking on any change is managing your team through the process. With extensive management and leadership experience, coupled with their knowledge of the industry, our skilled consultants can effectively guide and nurture your business through the transition process one step at a time.
We can help mitigate the negative aspects of change, and facilitate the positives by independently identifying and engaging stakeholders in key roles in the business to champion the implementation of PLM.
For many organisations, PLM is the foundation for other technologies and processes. We are able to develop roadmaps that offer best practice optimization for your business, taking into account technology integration requirements and supporting business units.
PLM technology focuses on cross department collaboration, rather than silo management and is an enabler of cooperation, in an increasingly geographical and cultural diverse workforce.
Organisation Change Management
The introduction of technology on its own does not improve a business bottom line. In fact, without a complete review of processes, any new software is likely to cause pain for the business and the people.

We are able to provide:
- Change management support

To complete the business optimisation, the acceptance and success of new processes require a complete analysis of the following:
- Skill set requirement
- Roles and responsibilities
- Change management
