Adobe Illustrator PLM Integration Plugin
PLM integration For Adobe Illustrator
Connectivity and collaboration have long been end goals, but creative teams often have considered PLM solutions more of a hindrance than a help. That’s because many of these systems require tedious data entry and time-consuming processes just to accomplish simple things like adding a new concept or style.
Our PLM integration with Adobe Illustrator takes the user experience to a whole new level. Exenta believes that PLM fashion software should enable creative teams to stay creative. This powerful Design Plug-in for Adobe Illustrator works with Exenta PLM REVO™ to reduce the amount of time designers spend creating and managing designs, articles and colorways. It eliminates excessive data entry and streamlines the design and development processes by empowering designers to launch new products and bills of materials without ever leaving Illustrator.
EXENTA DESIGN PLUG-IN FOR ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR KEEPS DESIGNERS CREATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE.
“Exenta ERP is the backbone of all our systems, and I am particularly pleased that we have an integrated, web-based PLM to support our designers who are working remotely as healing hands aids our nation’s healthcare workers.” –Sid Lakhani, CEO, Healing Hands
