Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, 11th September 2019, Lucy Blackley of Bombyx PLM has been shortlisted for a national award. Lucy has reached the finals for the ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year award presented by the Digital Entrepreneur Awards, and is sponsored by UKFast, and the Manchester Evening News.
This news follows on from last weeks news that Bombyx PLM has been shortlisted for the ‘Tech Startup of the Year Award’ presented by Reach PLC’s Hull and Humber Tech Awards.
“It’s a crazy time at Bombyx HQ! We’re getting so much recognition lately, but I’m so happy and so proud of the team and that our hard work is paying off, and people are resonating with our ethos and message.” – Lucy Blackley, Bombyx PLM
About Bombyx PLM
The product lifecycle management software is for any company creating products and supports the whole development process, from the initial concepts right through to production.
The idea for Bombyx was born out of the frustration of the PLM systems that were currently on the market for our industry.
After spending over a decade in the product development industry, working with globally-renowned fashion brands – including Arcadia Group, Very and Next – Lucy was fed up with the complicated, outdated and overpriced software that was supposed to aid product development teams.
Bombyx PLM has created a solution centred around the people in the industry. It ensures everything is in one place – suppliers details, budgets, margins, approvals and quality control, specifications, testing, sourcing and purchase orders – right from the design until after it hits stores.
“It’s about being able to sleep at night,” Lucy laughs.
The product development industry is notorious for its long hours, but no one wants to wake up worrying in the middle of the night. Moreover, Bombyx PLM is actively fighting the notion that PLM software is an exclusive luxury for large corporations.
The product is scalable and can support any operation at any size. Lucy and her team want to empower small busin1esses to create products they love with a system that supports them as they grow.
