CLEVR Joins Mendix’s ISV Program to Sell a Market-Leading Low-Code Solution Targeted at the Retail industry

Global Software-with-a-Service Provider Delivers Unique PLM Offering for the Retail, Apparel, Footwear and Accessories industry to streamline ideation, design, merchandising, product development and sourcing.

CLEVR announced today that it has become an official Mendix Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner. CLEVR and Mendix partnered up for a new visually interactive Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution with key capabilities like collection planning, digital mood boards, material management, 3D native design and vendor collaboration.

The Mendix ISV Program is available for partners that are looking to monetize their domain expertise by selling unique customer-centric solutions, like PLM. The program provides an ideal set of benefits to enable businesses to successfully develop, bring to market, sell, and deploy software solutions built on Mendix's leading low-code development platform.

Through the program, CLEVR will deliver a unique PLM solution for the retail and fashion industry. By eliminating the need for numerous different and fragmented data sources, users of the solution will save up to 20% of their time that they were used to spend searching for all product-related information within the organization. CLEVR PLM integrates seamlessly with 3D design software like Browzwear and Clo3D. These integrations provide more sustainable and time-saving ways of working with regards to sampling processes because product development is 3D driven, and fewer physical sample cycles are required, reducing your brands’ time-to-market by 20% on average. Another distinction is the focus on vendor collaboration. CLEVR PLM provides a vendor portal to facilitate communication between all stakeholders within the supply chain e.g., brands, material suppliers, and production facilities. This way of working allows our customers' global organizations to work as one single team across different geographies and locations throughout the supply chain.

The PLM solution signifies an important impact to designers, product developers, merchandisers and sourcing departments within the fashion industry as well as suppliers and manufacturers. The added Mendix capabilities allow the solution to be adaptive through easy customizations, have a quick time-to-value and integrates easily with other systems.

Angelique Schouten, CEO at CLEVR: “Our 300+ customers always expect us to deliver best-in-class solutions. Being the largest Mendix Expert partner globally, we continuously include all our experiences across all projects and customers into our out-of-the-box PLM solution. We are happy to join the Mendix ISV Program. This partnership allows us to deliver even more vertical-specific solutions, like PLM, in the future also via this channel.”

Rohit Tangri, Global Vice President, Industry and Partner Solutions & CSO at Mendix, said, "The Mendix ISV Partner Program will enable CLEVR to deliver innovative solutions, initially for the retail and fashion industry, on the Mendix low-code platform.  We are excited to have CLEVR as a new addition to our growing ISV Program as this partnership will enable them to offer a customer-proven and visually interactive PLM solution for the retail, apparel, footwear and accessories.
