WFX Cloud PLM

Cloud PLM leader WFX sponsored PI Apparel 2014, an event which took place in London on the 15th and 16th of July 2014. PI Apparel is an annual event that brings attention to new technologies to help support the growing demands of the fashion industry. This platform is for companies to discuss challenges and opportunities of new technology in improving product lifecycles.


WFX PLM

WFX Cloud PLM was represented at PI Apparel by WFX and London based partner 1970i, with its lead consultant Ben Muis also participating at the show. “This was my second year at the event” says Ben. "Technology is moving fast and the need for solid and progressive solutions for our clients in the fashion industry has only increased in that time. We have worked with WFX for almost three years now and have seen how the Cloud based approach is giving our clients new features all the time. The superb team at WFX manages to roll out implementations at a speed that our customers just cannot get anywhere else. Technology should not stand still in a business as dynamic as fashion. And fashion should not stand still whilst waiting for technology."

WFX provides a style, costing, sourcing, supply chain, pricing, and life-cycle management system which integrate day to day design and product development activity through a simple, intuitive and highly responsive interface.


Its key benefits include:

  • Easy access to a PLM Cloud based system.
  • Can be accessed 24/7
  • Automatic updates and upgrades.
  • Real-time control over the product.
PI Apparel, 2014 was rewarding for WFX as WFX’s unique Cloud offering received recognition from the industry. An increased awareness was witnessed amongst all about Cloud technologies and how to leverage it for fashion businesses.

In addition to PLM systems they also can provide help with PDM as you can see from the image below.
