Centric Software, a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions for fast moving consumer goods industries, announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Hokura LLC, a leading provider of retail supply chain automation and compliance management software and services. Under the terms of the agreement, Hokura will deliver value-added implementation and integration services to Centric customers in the fashion and retail markets.

Customers who purchase Centric's comprehensive solution suite, tailored specifically to address the PLM requirements of the fashion and retail industries, will have the option to leverage Hokura's domain expertise within those industries and quickly realize competitive advantage. Additionally, the availability of Hokura resources will enable Centric to continue its aggressive growth.

“Centric's solutions are known for their rapid implementation cycles and their ease of connectivity to other data sets within the customer environment,” said Ric Lara, CEO of Hokura LLC. “These characteristics, combined with our expertise in implementing best-practice business processes within the apparel, fashion, retail, and other fast moving consumer goods markets, will provide exceptional value for companies seeking to optimize their new product introduction, global sourcing, and other processes with a world-class PLM implementation.”

Hokura customers include major organizations in the retail, apparel, and fashion industries, including the Mervyns department store chain. This industry-specific business process experience, combined with training and certification in Centric's new Certified Partner Program (CPP), means that Hokura's skilled consultants are now capable of delivering installation, implementation and configuration services for the Centric Software in conjunction with Centric's field engineers.

“Our partnership with Hokura represents an important milestone in our plan to lead the PLM industry for fast moving consumer goods companies,” said Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software. “Hokura's talented people will deliver valuable knowledge to our customers with a quick time-to-value, which is fundamental to our business philosophy.
