Infor announced that Celio, the high street fashion house, has deployed its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to streamline the development cycle of new product launches.

The implementation of Infor PLM Runtime will help increase productivity and speed-to-market at all stages of garment design for annual collections, in addition to regular new product introductions throughout the year.

“The project commenced late 2006 following our design department's desire to streamline the new product development process. We wanted the company's departments, suppliers and subcontractors to share and maintain information at all stages of the design process within a single product data management (PDM) database,” explains Francois Messager, director of organization & information systems at the Celio Group.

“After conducting extensive research on potential vendors and then holding user trials, Infor's PLM solution was selected in Q1 2007. It was integral that we could deploy a comprehensive, standard version of the solution immediately without the need for bespoke developments.

“Infor PLM Runtime has already helped us adapt our working processes to become more collaborative and transparent in the way we work both internally, and with members of our extended supply chain. All of our designers now have secure access to the PDM database. This provides a single data source for drawings, forms, schedules and technical change orders. In addition to generating time and cost savings the PLM system plays a vital role in terms of improving quality and speed-to-market by creating new products right first time, without expensive design faults.”

The solution has now been rolled-out across Celio's different product groups. The fashion house has recently commenced working with Infor on a new project to develop and automate system interfaces. This will provide better visibility by linking Infor PLM Runtime with Celio's incumbent systems for enterprise resource planning and supply chain management.

“In addition to the technical specifications of the PLM solution, Infor's deep domain expertise within the fashion industry has also proved crucial to the success of these projects,” Messager concluded.

Founded in 1985, Celio has risen to become a leading brand in the men's ready to wear fashion market. The brand is represented in more than 40 countries with over 600 points of sale across the globe. A specialist in sports and casual wear, the Celio brand offers masculine yet relaxed fashion together with its new city-wear range, Celio Club. Its refined and discrete style places an emphasis on quality, colour variety and cut.
