Apparel firm Mud Pie selects Centric PLM suite

Mud Pie, an award-winning manufacturer of innovative and affordably priced gifts and apparel, based in Stone Mountain, Georgia, US, has selected Centric Software to provide its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies.

Charlene Schoepp, director of IT applications at Mud Pie, explains that Mud Pie reached a point where it became obvious that the company needed a PLM system to support its design, development, and production process.

Schoepp said, “We examined our core competencies and where we were struggling. Mud Pie is built on the fact that we design and develop great products, primarily in kids’ clothing, home décor and women’s fashion. We were running our product development team on an outdated system that frequently crashed. We were not giving our teams the tools they needed to succeed and it was time to put some technology behind our products. We want to get to market quicker with fewer errors.”

After a series of RFPS, demos, and reference checks, which narrowed their original list of ten vendors down to two, Mud Pie finally selected Centric Software PLM.

Schoepp said, “Centric PLM could handle everything we explained right out of the box. We weren’t looking at a tool we would have to completely reprogram to suit Mud Pie’s needs. Personalisation, not customisation, is key for us because it will also allow us to grow and evolve with time.”

“Currently, designs are in one place, costings in one place, emails contain yet other information. It’s a free-form system that makes it easy for errors to occur. We’re putting more structure behind the work they’re doing and we expect that Centric will make our design process quicker, because information will be more easily accessible. Communication will be much easier as there will be a single place to go to get a whole overview of the item,” he added.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We welcome Mud Pie to the Centric family. Mud Pie is a unique brand in that they produce a diverse range of gifts and craft objects as well as apparel lines. We look forward to helping Mud Pie see faster, more efficient time-to-market and communication benefits as the project continues.” (GK)
