Oct '11
Centric Software Inc will present seminars focused on product lifecycle management (PLM) software strategies for the apparel industry in London, Paris and New York this October.

Centric is the provider of Centric 8 PLM software for the apparel and fashion, luxury goods and consumer goods industries. In its upcoming events, Centric will highlight new capabilities that enable easy creation and management of dynamic collection books and catalogs by merchandising and sales teams. Leveraging Centric's industry-first, patent-pending Collection Book for Fashion iPad App's, the collection books and catalogs synchronize dynamically with up-to-date product option and availability information in Centric 8 PLM software.

“These new capabilities in Centric 8 deliver customized catalogs and collection presentations rapidly to sales staff for presentation to customers on an appealing mobile device,” says Chris Groves, CEO of Centric. “The catalogs and collection books replace error-prone, paper-based systems that offer customers out-of-date or unavailable products,” he explains. “Sales impact and customer satisfaction rise sharply when errors and missteps are removed from the sales process.”

PLM Seminar for Apparel, Footwear and Accessories: Tuesday, Oct. 18, 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Apex City of London Hotel

Mark Harrop, managing director of Product Development Partnership, a major consulting organization focusing on PLM and PDM for the apparel industry, and CEO of WhichPLM, a global media site dedicated to PLM for the apparel industry, will discuss investment strategies for PLM. Groves and other company executives will present an overview of Centric 8, discuss how to achieve a PLM implementation in as little as four months, and highlight innovations in collection and catalog management capabilities.

The seminar includes presentations, hands-on demonstrations, a question-and-answer session and lunch. The event is complimentary, but registration is required.
