Centric Software, the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies, has announced that Philipp Plein, the luxury fashion house, has successfully implemented Centric's product lifecycle management (PLM) solution on time and on budget.

The successful, fast growing fashion company is using Centric 8 PLM to develop its Spring/Summer 2017 collection only 3 months after the kick off of its PLM project.

To support the brand's fast paced expansion and booming success, Philipp Plein decided to look for a PLM solution. Philipp Plein is renowned for its creative and innovative designs as well as attention to detail. The designer uses expensive materials such as metal hardware and crystals to make the label's creations unique. The company was looking for a way to better estimate these material costs, as they are significant.

Philipp Plein's teams are using the full Centric 8 PLM suite across the design, product development, sourcing, and production departments in Lugano, Switzerland.

Corinna Barton, COO at Philipp Plein said, “We selected Centric Software because we share a passion for innovation. Centric knows the luxury industry and has a wide portfolio of high end brands. They understand our business and values.”

Daniele Montaguti, production manager at Philipp Plein said, “We needed a better way to track and calculate material costs. With Centric 8 PLM our product development teams are able to precisely evaluate material costs and send very accurate requirements for prototyping and production; this is real a time saver. Negotiation with suppliers is also facilitated due to accurate information tracking.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software, “We are happy to have met the challenge of implementing Centric 8 PLM in only 3 months at Philipp Plein. Our partnership is already resulting in streamlined operations and reduced time to market for this wildly successful brand. We are proud that Centric will continue to support this high-end brand's amazing expansion across the globe.” (GK)
