PTC has today announced its presence at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) annual event, Retail’s Big Show, from January 16th to 18th. A major fixture in the retail calendar, NRF is a must-attend event for brands and retailers looking for the latest cutting-edge retail technologies. PTC’s Retail Business Unit (located at booth #6703) will showcase FlexPLM V12 — with its modern, visual, and fully-responsive user interface — alongside a suite of digital product creation, sustainability, and supply chain solutions.

This year’s in-person NRF show —taking place for the first time since 2020 —will feature three full days of content and promises to provide attendees with all the contacts and networking opportunities to accelerate and propel their businesses into the next chapter of retail. Key events topics include: supply chain connectivity and collaboration; sustainability; AI, blockchain and machine learning; international business growth and leadership.

“We are thrilled to show the full scope of our ever-evolving retail digital transformation solutions at NRF,” says Bill Brewster, Senior Vice President and General Manager of PTC’s Retail Business Unit. “From interactive demonstrations to best practices and unique insights, visitors to our booth will learn how to use digital technologies like PLM, 3D, AI and AR to accelerate their design, product development and go-to-market processes, become more agile, improve their sustainability credentials, connect their supply chain operations, and make better, data-driven decisions. And as always, PTC’s team of retail experts will be on-hand to demonstrate why our solutions are being used by the most demanding brands and retailers on an unmatched scale every day.”

As part of this large-scale experience, PTC will also be demonstrating its latest release of FlexPLM, that features several customer-driven updates, including: additional UI/UX enhancements to improve materials useability, further support for visual collaboration and providing visual feedback and digital product creation with even easier 3D asset management.

Rounding out the capabilities on show will be PTC’s industry-first integration between FlexPLM and sustainability insights platform, Higg. Through this best-in-class integration, sourcing managers now have the information they need to select the most environmentally friendly suppliers for manufacturing, and product designers and developers can better understand the environmental impact of the materials they choose to incorporate into their products.

“NRF provides brands and retailers with a world-class platform to access the tools that will help them to thrive in a new, post-pandemic, digital era,” continued Brewster. “PTC is proud to be part of that conversation, and we look forward to showing visitors to NRF 2022 what makes our Retail PLM and other solutions special: useability, scalability, security, the ability to manage countless product categories and multinational complex supply chains as standard, and the opportunity to turn some truly unique technologies into an advantage in terms of speed to market, agility, and creativity – every area that counts in the retail market of today.”
