Apparel firm Bench implements Centric PLM suite
Sep '16
Bench, an international stylish clothing brand, has successfully implemented Centric PLM suite by Centric Software, the leading product lifestyle management (PLM) solution for fashion, retail, outdoor, footwear, luxury, and consumer goods companies, on time and on budget. The system is implemented in Germany and UK offices of the apparel company.

Bench sought a PLM solution as a foundation to their global growth initiative and to improve their product development process. Among the key deciding factors when making the selection were Centric's innovative solution, Centric 8 PLM, and the ability to deliver quickly using their Agile Deployment methodology.

Dr. Bruno Sälzer, chairman and CEO of Bench said, “We were looking for a PLM solution which would support us in expanding our product portfolio and reducing time to market. After carefully investigating the market, Centric was the clear choice for us. We decided to put our trust in the global market leader for PLM solutions. Centric has industry specific best practices built right into the software which means no time consuming, costly customisation is needed.”

Sebastian Streck, chief product officer at Bench said, “We chose Centric to improve collaboration throughout the supply chain and simplify internal and external processes in line with best practices. Our goal is to increase our productivity and reduce our time to market while continuing to grow our business.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said, “We are very proud to have successfully gone live across all of Bench's divisions and to fully meet Bench's expectations. We are excited to play a hand in Bench's growth initiative and will to continue to partner with them for the next stages in their strategy.” (GK)
