French childrenswear chooses Centric 8 PLM suite

French firm, Tape à l'Œil (TAO), a part of the Mulliez family association and childrenswear brand, has chosen Centric 8 Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to support strategic objectives and reinforce brand integrity.

TAO will deploy Centric across its international team of designers, product managers, buyers and pattern makers. With their customers in mind, TAO initiated its PLM project as a way to improve operations and become even more customer-focused by shortening time to market.

Olivier Paul, group buying director said, “Traditionally, it would take us between 4 to 5 months from the first sample to final product delivery. But with Centric, we expect to reduce cycle times by 25 per cent, giving our designers and product managers the opportunity to better anticipate trends and adapt our offer.”

TAO plans to use Centric 8 PLM to improve the way technical specifications are communicated to supply chain partners. The company also aims to use Centric's innovative technologies – particularly its integrated mobile applications – to support the relocation of key activities like quality assurance closer to suppliers' production sites in order to reduce the average number of samples per style from three to one, and mitigate the environmental impact of international logistics, according to a press release.

Centric Software CEO Chris Groves said, “We are excited to work with another member of the Mulliez Group – particularly one with such a strong customer community. TAO is committed to capturing the essence of youth in its products, and the Centric team is dedicated to providing the proven processes and technologies that will help drive that optimistic spirit.”

TAO is an omni-channel company, distributed across 300 stores in 19 countries and online. Over 900 employees stand united behind the brand and share its core values.

From its headquarters in Silicon Valley and offices in trend capitals around the world, Centric Software builds technologies for the most prestigious names in fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, and consumer goods. (GK)
