Gerber Technology is adopting a new subscription-based bundles option for the latest version of its AccuMark pattern design, production planning and 3D simulation software.
Gerber’s PLM offering has been available on a subscription basis for the last three years, a move it says has been ‘hugely successful’, with the addition of AccuMark subscriptions underscoring this.
“We are continuously looking for ways to help our customers win and that means providing them with the most innovative technology and new ways of engaging with us,” said Gerber chief strategy and digital officer Karsten Newbury.
“Our subscription-based model is not only going to address the needs of our current customers, it will also empower the next generation of great innovators and disruptors to enter the market.”
Gerber believes its subscription model will provides the flexibility and speed that companies need to flourish in today’s on-demand world, making the software more affordable and lowering the cost of entry for newcomers.
The subscription offering will begin with AccuMark 2D and two bundling options, the TechDesign bundle and the TechDesign Premium bundle.
Bundles will feature AccuMark 2D and AccuMark 3D as well as YuniquePLM or the brand new Yunique Sample Manager, depending on the selection.
The TechDesign bundle offers users abilities to accelerate their product development process by reducing physical samples and facilitating collaboration. In the future, more bundles will be released.
