Centric PLM boosts production for sports firm Klim
Klim, a global leader in designing, developing, and manufacturing the most technically advanced motor sports apparel, has seen a massive growth in production with Centric PLM software. Centric Software provides a digital transformation platform for the most prestigious names in fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods.

The cyclical nature of the snowmobiling gear market meant that Klim sought ways to improve efficiency and build platforms for growth from its early days.

Kade Kraus, CFO of the company said, “We would sell tons of jackets in winter, but of course no-one bought snow gear in May or June. We needed a way to smooth out those peaks and troughs: to ramp up production during the peaks, but not have to lay people off during quiet periods. We knew that the right software platform could help us be as efficient as possible and prepare effectively for the next season’s business during the offseason.”

Klim recognised their need for a platform that would make operations easily repeatable and consistent in order to produce the high-quality gear their customers expected.

Klim decided to select a PLM solution to help improve product development and operational efficiency. Initially examining ten different PLM solutions in great detail, Klim selected Centric Software in 2009, becoming one of Centric PLM’s earliest adopters.The company now sources materials from dozens of factories around the world and has seen measurable improvements in communication with factories since implementing Centric PLM, including sample lead time reduced by 25 per cent, time to get pricing from factories reduced by 75 per cent, time to return sample comments to factories reduced by 55 per cent, and time to compile materials forecasts shortened from 2-3 weeks to half a day.

Centric has developed an innovative field testing app that originated in Klim’s request for ways to gather testing data in real time from all over the world. (GK)
