Gerber to Release New WebPDM

Gerber Technology has updated its popular WebPDM software, which manages specs, costing and other data during the pre-production process.

Version 5.3 includes several enhancements to provide easier, faster and more powerful searching, navigation, data entry and reporting capabilities, said company officials.

Specifically, a stronger integration between WebPDM and Accumark, Gerber’s CAD product, has been realized. Other improvements were made to navigation aspects such as the drag-and-drop feature for re-orders, improved report formatting and new image plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator.

Beta testers have reported enhanced time savings with the new system, said Elizabeth King, director for software applications for the Tolland, Conn.–based company. For more information, visit —Robert McAllister
