Gateway DPM is a design tool with functionality for managing the proofing and sampling process whilst Gateway CPP is a comprehensive product management tool for designs created outside of our software.
DPM can only create Virtual Products whilst CPP can also cater for the other types of on demand products like configurable, blanks, stock and made to order products. Both platforms can publish to our Virtual Product Warehouse or submit orders to our Approved Supplier Network.
Many customers do subscribe to both CPP and DPM and it is quite common to have different team members using the different platforms, as they share the same database. Your designer can use product blanks from your factory team in DPM and merchandiser can manage products created by your designer in CPP.
