With YuniquePLM™, FS (fast start) edition, companies of any size can quickly reap the benefits of a product lifecycle management tool that is designed to have users up and running in as little as three weeks. Out-of-the-box solution is easy to install and use, pre-populated with critical templates including PANTONE® TPX and TCX color palettes, measurement tables, care symbols and instructions.
