Apparel firm Orchestra selects Centric PLM suite

Orchestra, a leading maternity and childrenswear apparel firm from US, has selected the product lifecycle management (PLM) suite from Centric Software, the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and fast-moving consumer goods industries, to sustain its stratospheric growth and optimise its product development process.

To keep pace with business growth, Orchestra recently embarked on a global overhaul of its information systems, including an ERP implementation. Questions about the product development process also arose.

Following an exhaustive search, Centric Software was chosen on the basis of its expertise, knowledge of best practices, and strong team. In addition to optimising its own processes, Orchestra will also use Centric to streamline collaboration throughout its extended supply chain including internal departments, suppliers, and purchasing offices.

Llorca, director of Orchestra's supply chain, methods, and organisation said, “We decided to look for a PLM specialist as this was the best approach for us and our IT strategy. We wanted to do more than consolidate systems; we need a foundation to sustain our immediate, ongoing growth, but we also required a solution that is resilient and flexible enough to change along with our goals. Centric understood our needs and our relationship has been excellent, from first contact to implementation. The Centric team was the only one capable of delivering a proof of concept (POC) that fulfilled every expectation, including ongoing monitoring, dashboarding, and reports.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “Orchestra's growth in the space of just two decades is extremely impressive. We are honoured that Orchestra chose to partner with us for such an important part of their strategy and we are looking forward to providing a stable, scalable foundation for a successful future.” (GK)
