Grupo Cortefiel, one of Europe’s leading fashion retailers operating in the specialised chain segment, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution, creating a revolution in its sourcing process. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies.

Manel Jimenez, the supply chain general manager from Grupo Cortefiel’s said, “We initially went live with the Springfield brand and the project included aspects such as collection management, prototype creation, technical specification development, sample reviews, and materials management. We connected PLM to our ERP solution, while taking the different needs of each brand into account. The project went quite smoothly and we met our initial project goals.”

“Once Centric PLM was rolled out across the company, we began our plans to extend PLM to sourcing. Sourcing is a crucial part of the PLM puzzle for us, as buyers and designers struggled to stay up to date. We wanted Centric PLM to handle product information as well as communication with vendors, factory management and quality assurance. Working with Centric, we kicked off our sourcing project in October 2016,” he added.

Manel Jimenez said, “We needed Centric’s product sourcing module to handle a large volume of different types of data, such as vendor contact details, social and technical factory audits, sourcing manuals for vendors, quality assurance inspection reports and design files for vendors to review. We also wanted to make it possible to create clear critical paths and timelines for order inspections, with defined milestones. It’s important for us to integrate all of our suppliers with the PLM system, and as part of the PISA project, we aimed to get at least 50 per cent of them on board.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “Grupo Cortefiel have been a close partner since 2013, and we are very pleased that they have successfully implemented Centric’s product sourcing module in the latest phase of their PLM project. This is the latest evolution of an excellent working relationship that we are proud to carry into the future.” (GK)
