“Currently, e-commerce is exploding in the fashion and retail industries. Large and emerging brands are adjusting to the paradigm shifts affecting the industry. Trends such as personalization, sustainability, metaverse and the effects of digital 3D design have challenged brands and companies to adapt and fit into the new paradigms.

This accelerates the speed of innovation delivering value to our customers.”

Mendix PLM for Fashion and Retail provides an easy-to-use visual interface. Its True 3D Integration capabilities accelerate collaboration on product design and creation of accurate bill of materials by unlocking the metadata within 3D authoring applications for usage with the PLM solution. Multi-experience capabilities enable collaboration across the value chain and embedded mass photo-realistic image generation shortens time to market, allowing users to go direct to e-commerce or metaverse catalogs with designs.

“The Mendix PLM for Fashion and Retail solution is an addition to our strategy of providing high value low-code solutions built on the cloud-native Mendix platform. Leveraging the Mendix platform enables solutions with industry-leading capabilities in multi-experience, integration, and time to value,” said Ron Wellman, head of industry clouds at Mendix. “We intend to continually enhance our industry ecosystem by identifying and bringing to market solutions that provide immediate results for our customers. The Mendix industry vertical strategy is to work internally and with key industry partners to build and market a specific set of assets and solutions including, data source connectors, support for APIs and workflows, accelerator templates, and adaptive solutions.”
