Furla, the Italian fashion company of premium leather goods and accessories, has selected Centric 8 product lifecycle management (PLM) software.

The company will use the Centric 8 PLM software for fashion, luxury, retail and consumer goods to help execute its international growth plan. Centric 8 will serve as a key component in Furla’s re-design of its product development and supply chain processes, Furla informs in a press release.

The Centric 8 PLM suite delivers easy-to-use functionality to manage critical, inseparable business processes, including merchandise planning, development, sourcing, business planning, quality management and collection management. Centric 8 implements and delivers value rapidly using an Agile DeploymentSM methodology.

Eraldo Poletto, CEO of Furla said, “The Centric PLM software will increase Furla’s efficiency by improving internal and external collaboration with the company’s manufacturing platform and suppliers. Deeper, more comprehensive collaboration among Furla’s style, merchandising and product development teams will assure that on-trend products reach their international markets on-time.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said, “The opportunity to work with the Furla brand – a true expression of authentic Italian style – is an opportunity to make a real difference in the growth of this iconic company known for elegance and creativity. The Centric 8 PLM solution, designed especially for fashion, luxury, retail and consumer goods, will help Furla achieve its global goals.”

Furla is one of the major players in the worldwide leather goods market, standing for its strictly made-in-Italy creativity. The company is present in 100 countries with 398 single-brand shops situated on the most prestigious international shopping streets, in a distribution network with more than 1,000 official points of sales, and in important growing channels such as travel, retail and e-commerce.
