Backbone PLM in the US Launches New Product Development Software on Shopify

US-based Backbone PLM has unveiled a new version of its cloud-based product development software for fashion and apparel brands DTC, available on the Shopify App Store. Backbone Lite provides the tools to professionalize the product development process, speed time to market, and empower creativity, allowing designers to focus on building products.

Backbone Lite works very similarly to Backbone PLM with all the essential functionality needed to create technology packs, including a centralized cloud-based platform for product and component data. By leveraging the app’s dynamic data, customers reduce manual data entry by 40%, maintaining up-to-date product details that team members can share in real time. When users send product details to factories for production, technical packages are created in minutes rather than hours. This means huge time and cost savings for growing brands that spend considerable time manually compiling tech packs using Excel and Adobe Illustrator, the company said in a press release. .

Fashion and apparel brands often turn to traditional PLM software to scale product production and manage an influx of new styles without a chaotic spreadsheet system. Legacy PLM platforms require long training periods that hinder product growth. However, Backbone’s flexible and user-friendly system allows customers to intuitively transition and work as a team to implement impactful changes quickly, at a fraction of the cost.

Additional features like the Adobe Illustrator plug-in save designers time and enhance their creative journey by syncing changes from Illustrator artboards directly into Backbone’s Product Libraries and Tech Packs. Backbone Lite’s product development solution offers PLM beginners an effortless path to solving common roadblocks and reducing time to value while scaling critical business functions.

“Backbone believes the future of consumer brands is digital. Traditional PLMs fail to provide the DTC market with the solutions needed to bring new products to market quickly and efficiently. Backbone Lite is the answer. Teams no longer need to choose between expensive systems or a tangle of spreadsheets,” Backbone CEO, Jeff Fedorsaid in a statement.
