TOLLAND, CT, USA, Nov 22, 2018 - Collaborating across companies with large product lines helps decrease the time from design concept to store shelf. Technology for collaboration has evolved over time to help facilitate cooperation across product lines and geographies. “It was imperative with our upgrade from webPDM to YuniquePLM that collaboration continues to be easy and speed up product development,” Donna Kohring, manager, systems development for Totes Isotoner Corporation.
