Fashion firm Tom Tailor selects Centric's PLM suite

German-based Tom Tailor Group, one of the leading and fastest-growing fashion and lifestyle houses in Europe, has decided to adopt Centric Software's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to support international growth.

Tom Tailor has experienced strong growth in the past few years. The Tom Tailor Brand itself has gone from € 200+ million to more than € 900 million combined revenues in the last five years through organic growth and also the acquisition of Bonita. Tom Tailor and Bonita offer casual wear, denim and other clothing for men, women and children.

The acquisition of Bonita opened up new opportunities for the Group, reaching a new target group of so called best agers (40years+). Centric was selected to support the company's key competitive strategy of systematically analysing and rapidly implementing fashion trends and responding to consumers' wishes, according to a press release.

One impetus for the project was that Tom Tailor decided that they needed to completely revamp their IT infrastructure. Their previous system counted 74 legacy systems which made internal and external collaboration complex and rigid. TOM TAILOR will start using Centric 8 PLM across their denim division, before rolling out to casual wear for men, women and children. Future steps will consist in integrating their agents in Asia and their suppliers.

Dr. Heiko Schaefer, COO of Tom Tailor said, “We did our due diligence before deciding on a partnership with Centric. Our PLM initiative is fundamental for us to enabling and reaching our strategic goals. So we spent about a year examining the market, talking with existing PLM customers as well as PLM vendors, and combined with our own PLM experience, made the decision for Centric. Their focus on our market, their continued innovation, their reputation with their customers for delivering on their commitments and their consulting team are just some of the reasons that lead us to this decision.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said, “Tom Tailor's strong growth over the last few years is really impressive. I am confident that both our fashion expertise and our Centric 8 PLM solution will help them build best practice foundations to support this growth during their business transformation phase. We are very honoured that they chose us as a partner.” (GK)
