Sports firms Lotto Sport & Stonefly select Centric PLM

Lotto Sport, the global Italian sportswear company for footwear and technical clothing, and Stonefly, the Italian footwear producer, have selected Centric Software to provide their product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution provider for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies.

Incorporating Stonefly into the framework of Lotto Sport presented a challenge on how to harmonise the information systems of both companies and make sure that the overall system was flexible enough to adapt to changes and share data efficiently.

Sebastiano Di Camillo, head of information technology from Lotto said, “Lotto had a PLM system in place, but Stonefly had no system at all. We used our PLM system for four years but because it was highly customised, it became more and more inflexible and difficult to evolve. The upcoming project with Stonefly gave Lotto the opportunity to review our information systems structure and look for a more flexible solution. As a result, we decided to change the PLM we had been using and start fresh with a new system across both companies.”

“We chose Centric PLM because it is a highly configurable solution with no customisation. There’s a good trade-off between cost and quality and Centric is also very user-friendly. Our team’s first impression of Centric was that it is a very flexible product and as we have come to know it better, we have found out just how easy it is to use,” he added.

Sebastiano said, “We’ll have more information, with major improvements in quality and we will have more visibility into costs and calendars. As the head of IT department, it’s important to understand the cost of a product and the profitability of our business. We have a lot of people involved in developing collections and with Centric PLM in place, we will be able to make this more efficient with far fewer errors than in the past.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “Lotto Sport and Stonefly have a very important and challenging project ahead of them as they integrate the information systems of both companies and we are proud to be part of it. We are thrilled to partner with them as they replace old systems and establish new ways of working, and look forward to innovating with them into the future.”

In addition to headquarters in Treviso, Lotto has teams in France, Spain, Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan. The company manages the design, development, and manufacture of its sportswear, which is primarily produced by suppliers in Asia. (GK)
