Paul & Shark, the luxury sportswear brand, has selected Centric Software to provide its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software.

According to Andrea Dini, owner and CEO of Paul & Shark, the company, known for combining technical fabrics with elegant and stylish details, will use Centric 8 PLM to help manage growth and international expansion.

“The advantages of PLM, and specifically, Centric PLM, are significant when it comes to speed, efficiency and full visibility across all areas of product development. The Sample Review Mobile App, in particular, will help Paul & Shark maintain and enhance excellence in product quality and with the manufacture of materials,” Dini said in a media statement.

The Centric 8 Sample Review Mobile App is an easy-to-use tool that allows users to quickly view and edit sample and style data on any iOS-enabled mobile device. The app results in better communication with suppliers, faster and more accurate sample development, and a more rapid product development schedule.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said, “Centric 8 PLM is ideal for Paul & Shark, an Italian brand that is synonymous with elegance and high-performance materials. Centric 8 will give Paul & Shark the ability to maintain laser focus on quality throughout the design and development process while expanding to meet increasing international opportunities.”

Paul & Shark, the luxury sportswear brand manufactured and distributed by Dama SpA, was founded in 1975 by the Dini family, textiles entrepreneurs since 1921.

Centric Software is a leading provider of PLM software for retail, apparel, footwear, luxury, and consumer goods companies. The Centric 8 PLM suite delivers easy-to-use functionality to manage critical, inseparable business processes, including merchandise planning, product development, sourcing, business planning, quality management and collection management.
