Established in 1990, Cutter & Buck prides itself on the design, manufacturing and distribution of versatile sportswear that meets the demands of an active lifestyle. With an expanding line of products for golf, collegiate and professional sports, corporate wear, and specialty retail markets, the Seattle-based company is proud to provide its customers with safe and compliant products as a certified QCA supplier since 2011.

Like a growing number of fashion companies, Cutter & Buck saw PLM as a platform on which they could build a single location and source for all their product data. In contrast to many others that focus their PLM efforts mostly on the internal product development processes, Cutter & Buck saw the opportunity to quickly accomplish key business goals that went well beyond the typical PLM system deployment.

By integrating YuniquePLM with their existing SAP enterprise software system, Cutter & Buck eliminated duplicate data entry and the resulting errors that come from maintaining multiple data sources.

Cutter & Buck

The Challenge:

Before implementing YuniquePLM, the company's design and development teams maintained product information in Excel® spreadsheets, Adobe® Illustrator® drawings, CAD designs and personal email folders. The all-too-familiar result was a process that was difficult to manage and provided little visibility into internal and external processes and workflows.

The Solution:

Like a growing number of fashion companies, Cutter & Buck saw PLM as a platform on which they could build a single location and source for all their product data. In contrast to many others that focus their PLM efforts mostly on the internal product development processes, Cutter & Buck saw in YuniquePLM the opportunity to quickly accomplish key business goals that went well beyond the typical PLM system deployment. Today, all product details and calendars are available to stakeholders across five continents.

The Benefits:

By integrating YuniquePLM with their existing SAP enterprise software system, Cutter & Buck eliminated duplicate data entry and the resulting errors that come from maintaining multiple data sources. YuniquePLM became the company's single version of the truth for product information. Key benefits are:

  • YuniquePLM enables Cutter & Buck to collaborate and share information 24 hours a day, seven days a week with their factories and agents across five continents. 
  • With product information and calendars visible to all stakeholders, any issues that may affect product schedules are identified and addressed immediately. 
  • By integrating YuniquePLM with their existing SAP enterprise software system, Cutter & Buck eliminated duplicate data entry and the resulting errors that come from maintaining multiple data sources.


Factories and agents clearly benefit from the increased access and interaction that is made possible through YuniquePLM.
