A PLM Software Implementation Leads to Over $500k in Savings


Victorinox Apparel, a renowned high-quality clothing brand for the modern adventurer, faced significant challenges in its product design and development process, causing delays and inefficiencies. Seeking solutions, the well-known organization engaged MetaExpert, Simone, to analyze the process and propose improvements.


MetaExpert, Simone, conducted in-depth interviews with the design, merchandising, and product development teams. It became evident there were no standardized processes or systems in place. Each team member maintained their own files and as a result, needed to communicate constantly about any changes that took place causing doubled efforts and wasted time and energy.


Simone identified the need for centralized and accessible data to improve collaboration and efficiency. Additionally, reports needed to be generated automatically so each team member could be abreast of changes and updates.


Simone implemented a Product Lifecycle Management Software to streamline communication and data processes.


  • By implementing Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, the team saved 25% of their time.
  • The overall development time was reduced by 20% due to the elimination of crisis management and improved coordination.
  • Turnover in the design team decreased by 20%, leading to a more stable and motivated workforce.
  • The company estimated annual savings of $500k which was reinvested in developing better collections and optimizing resources.


Return on Investment

Victorinox experienced tangible improvements in time efficiency, reduced turnover costs, enhanced collaboration, and better product development. The investment in the PLM software and process optimization delivered a substantial return on investment.
