Paris, June 28, 2016 -- Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology 
solutions dedicated to industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles 
and composite materials, is pleased to announce the launch of Lectra Fashion 
PLM V5, the newest version of its product lifecycle management solution. 
This new release boosts overall production efficiency by extending its process 
coverage to pre-production stages.

Tailor-made for brands and retailers, the innovative solution was developed 
with the ambition of addressing the market-specific challenges of today. 
"We are now living in a digital world, more so in fashion than other sectors 
and Lectra aims to keep its customers ahead of the evolving industry. To help 
them deliver profitable, on-trend collections within increasingly tight time 
constraints, we need to go one step further by accompanying them in their 
pre-production processes with both our technology and industry expertise. 
Clearing potential roadblocks right from the start ensures efficiency in the 
later production stages," explains CĂ©line Choussy Bedouet, Chief Marketing and 
Communications Officer, Lectra.

The extended process coverage will provide greater visibility over fabric and 
product cost management processes and guide companies towards making the right 
calls prior to production. This helps companies optimize profitability as the 
solution enables them to run multiple cost simulations concurrently via 
consolidated summary views. Additionally, this latest version will help reduce 
fabric waste in production, as companies will be able to estimate fabric 
consumption for future collections and simulate different purchase-order 
scenarios earlier on.

In addition, given the increasingly nomadic nature of its users, Lectra Fashion 
PLM V5 is equipping companies with a brand new series of mobile applications to 
accelerate day-to-day decision-making. By being able to share and view mobile 
versions of their works-in-progress, brands and retailers can make on-the-spot 
decisions on work priorities, their collection range, the size and fit of their 
products during off-site meetings.

Furthermore, while improving profit margins and production speed are top 
priorities, Lectra is not compromising on design quality. As the PLM V5 
solution is integrated with Adobe® Creative Cloud, connected design teams 
can create top-quality sketches with Adobe® Creative Suite and make changes 
while working in their native environments. Lectra is also careful not 
to neglect the creative thought process by providing a mobile application 
for designers to take and share photos instantly with their team members. 
To facilitate the patternmaking process for customers, Lectra Fashion 
PLM has upgraded their previous solution by 
including newer, more sophisticated and substantial content 

Last but not least, Lectra Fashion PLM V5 makes the user experience a 
smooth and fuss-free one. Featuring a more intuitive and visually 
appealing interface, users will have easy access to more detailed 
information such as product specifications.

"Lectra continuously strives to push past the frontiers of fashion 
technology to better serve this industry. We aim to accompany our 
customers every step of the way, right from the very first creative 
spark to the final production stages. With 40 years of fashion 
industry experience under our belts, our goal now is to keep 
innovating. Lectra Fashion PLM V5 is another sign of our commitment 
to this goal," concludes Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO.
