Spiegel Expands Use Of Yunique Software

Spiegel Brands Inc., New York City — a specialty retailer and direct marketer of women’s apparel,
footwear, accessories, and home products — has expanded its use of New York City-based Yunique
Solutions product lifecycle management (PLM) Software to support increased product innovation,
operational transparency, and a more efficient and proactive supply chain. Spiegel will utilize the
collaboration and process management aspects of the software to create regional product teams
comprised of independent vendors. These teams will work closely with the Asian production
facilities, fulfilling all responsibilities from design through production development.

“We needed a system built on a modern, open platform that provided for global collaboration,”
said Jose Sanez, director of technical design systems, processes and calendars, Spiegel. “We can
manage our apparel, footwear, home and accessory lines with this single solution.”
