Centric Software, Inc. completed four successful years of software innovation with its phenomenal growth due to overwhelming market adoption of its strategy based on mobility, innovation and extending beyond traditional PLM (product lifecycle management) for fashion, retail, luxury, footwear, and consumer goods.

Bookings were up more than 70 per cent over the previous fiscal year. Centric reached its 145 customer milestone through the addition of over 40 new customers, the most of any vendor in the global PLM marketplace last year, according to a press release.

Centric opened new offices in three regions; Scandinavia, Mexico and Japan. Entrance into each region was secured by prestigious industry names; retail leader Varner in Norway, the yarn to store vertically integrated Grupo Avante in Mexico and in Japan, worldwide sports giant, Asics. Eighteen months after opening an office in Shanghai, Centric Software reached 15th customer milestone in China.

Last year, Centric launched Centric Cloud PLM, a new solution specifically designed for small businesses. Centric Cloud packages extended PLM, including mobility and key industry learnings, but focuses on functionality tailored for small businesses. Centric again significantly extended the process footprint and deepened the functionality of its flagship solution; web-based, Centric 8 PLM. Centric staff, mainly comprised of industry and IT experts, increased again by over 40 per cent and included a team for Centric’s newly opened Innovation Lab.

Centric’s mobile portfolio also expanded to 12 apps with support being extended to Android. Over 30 per cent of Centric customers now use Centric’s mobile apps including leading names such as Under Armour, Nina Ricci and Ports 1961. Over the past year, approximately 35 per cent of Centric customers have spoken publically in support of their solutions. (GK)
