Système U adopts Centric 8 PLM to grow private-labels

The retailers’ cooperative, with more than 1,500 markets and stores, will implement the Calendar Management, Product Sourcing, Product Specification and Quality Management modules of the Centric 8 PLM system for retail, apparel, footwear and consumer goods companies. Système U will use the centric suite to manage product development of its accessories, footwear, juvenile products and home linens collections, as well as women’s, men’s and children’s apparel lines.

“With Centric 8 PLM software, Système U will be able to manage the growth of its private-label apparel lines,” says Yohann Boisdron, merchandise applications director of Systeme U. “With everyone using one version of ‘the truth’ about the product, and working on the same page, Système U can increase efficiency of the product development process, speed time to market and improve product traceability.”

Système U will be able to easily save and track all fit session data with the Centric 8 Quality Management module, explains Boisdron. In addition, the PLM system will provide easy-to-access data from external contractors on material and final-product quality.

Flexibility and configurability factored heavily into the Centric PLM choice, says Boisdron. With the fast growth of Système U’s apparel division, in particular, comes the need for system adjustments. “With Centric’s PLM system, there is no need to customize,” he says. “Instead, configuring for Système U’s individual needs is simple and fast.” In addition, Boisdron cites Centric 8’s ease of use, which facilitates user adoption.

“The Centric 8 PLM system will directly help Système U in its efforts to increase efficiency and productivity,” says Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric. The configurable—vs. customizable—nature of the Centric software, and Centric’s unique Agile Deployment(SM) implementation methodology, will help Système U dramatically as it continues to grow its private-label lines at a rapid pace, he adds. “Système U’s selection of Centric 8 PLM, like other recent wins at leading retailers including TALLY WEiJL, demonstrates that Centric has become the go-to PLM vendor for large-scale, global retailers with hundreds or thousands of stores.”
