Our software has been web first
from the beginning

  • We're all aware of SaaS - Software as a Service - being the buzzword around the PLM industry these days, but a lot of the competition have only started making the switch to online functionality as of recent. And even then, their implementation is still built on a existing hardware install base. FAN PLM was built and tested for over 10 years as a web based application, handling it's tasks with all the speed and reliability that you would expect of a dedicated software base.

  • We are living through dynamic and progressive times with only the most agile succeeding. Just because you need enterprise level software doesn't mean it should be difficult to make daily change. FAN PLM is easily tailored to work flexibly with your changing operations. Being web based means that there is no overhead or set up involved when dealing with employee change. Advanced permissions allow you to customize views of critical information and relations for any user.

  • FAN PLM is a truly online system, built with the best in breed internet technologies. This gives users the same intuitive interface they are familiar with, right in their browser of choice. Our design features advanced interactivity when it comes to manipulating and sorting information on each page.

All the benefits you expect
and more

Every Lifecycle management software provides basic tracking and resource
management functionality but few understand the real problems
specific to the footwear and apparel industry.

More and more of todays lifecycle management is consumed with continual reporting. Not just internally but for factories, agents, and suppliers who need to regulate and report their actions. We offer robust tools and automated workflows when generating XLS, PDF and PowerPoint presentations. See your daily operations with unprecedented clarity and depth.

Our in depth knowledge of the industry (some of our staff has over 30 years experience) delivers savings by accounting for variables other PLM’s don’t. From seasonal line planning to streamlining regulatory compliance we bring transparency to your process!

We've built our system to deliver maximum functionality to every user type in the footwear and apparel chain. From Line Planners to Product Designers, from Resource Managers to Factory Agents, they all have access to critical information at their fingertips.

Our modular event based system brings intelligent, real time interaction between pages to alert the user of fields that have to be filled, conditions that have to be met, and criteria based reminders when action is necessary.

We're proud to announce that we've aligned our development with Adobe Software as a certified Adobe Partner. We offer Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop integration as part of our package and as a stand alone plug-in.

Streamline your workflow

I can share my plans with all of the other members of my Team, and members of cooperative teams, having visibility and access to the progress and to their handoff.

After I share my projects with our sourcing partners, they see what I want them to see. Any changes are immediate and updated globally.

The system manages the workflow and we have visibility to changes as they are made. I know what has been done and what needs to be completed.

All of the reports that are needed are easy to create and then download to Excel if I need to tailor them for specific audiences.

A reputation of trust

"Our customers, factories and suppliers share data directly through real time communications with outstanding results. Their expertise and customer service was second to none!"

"Frontech's FAN PLM has provided Sole Technology with a significant competitive advantage over competitors using other PLM's. From zero downtime to it's fast and efficient online flexibility we've grown our worldwide operations together."

"FAN PLM replaced an existing system that was under-performing and affecting the supply chain. Quiksilver was delivered a system that increased transparency and collaboration while managing costs more effectively."
