The Centric 8 PLM platform will be used across all of the group's brands and all product types to help structure assortment planning and product development processes in order to support Truworths' rapid expansion, according to a press release.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We share Truworths' passion for innovation and fashion. We are very proud to work with one of South Africa's leading fashion retailers and bring our experience in fast fashion to help them in their strategy to achieve sustainable growth.”
