Inspirations Module

Inspiration module - SilkPLM

This module enhances productivity at fairs, showrooms, and in collaboration with marketing and visual merchandising departments.

Inspirations are the sparks that ignite all creative work. They are derived from a variety of sources including global presentations, the Internet, influencers, trend forecasts, meetings with vendors, their showrooms, trade fair booths, and even the streets themselves. These sources fuel the creativity of designers, transforming initial sparks of inspiration into concrete product designs throughout the design process.

To streamline this creative influx, SilkPLM introduces the SilkCREO module. This tool is designed to meticulously collect inspirations, organise them, and integrate them with planned mood boards. With SilkCREO, you can swiftly transform these inspirations into foundational ideas for future product portfolios, even while navigating the bustling environment of trade fairs.

SilkCREO offers unparalleled flexibility, whether you’re in the field or behind your desk. It enables orderly note-taking, automates the export of notes from your mobile device to the PM system, and provides a platform for the creative analysis of collected materials using drag-and-drop boards.
