Truworths, one of South Africa's leading fashion apparel retailers, has chosen Centric 8 Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software to support international growth and help structure its product development process.

In order to reinforce its competitive positioning and to continue to grow internationally, Truworths is focusing on delivering on-trend products and styles. As a consequence, the Truworths group has a wide portfolio of brands and styles and adopts a fast fashion business model for a large portion of its product ranges. A key goal is to reduce time to market.

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.”

Truworths International Ltd is an investment holding and management company listed on the JSE in South Africa and the Namibian Stock Exchange.

Centric Software builds technologies for the most prestigious names in fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, and consumer goods. Its flagship product lifecycle management (PLM) platform, Centric 8, delivers enterprise-class merchandise planning, product development, sourcing, business planning, quality and collection management functionality tailored for fast-moving consumer industries.
