Swedish outdoor brand, POC, has selected Centric Software to provide its PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solution.

Founded in 2005 in the ski racing market, POC debuted with new products to improve safety by reducing the force transmitted to the brain and body in case of a crash. The company has developed a strong reputation for gravity sports and cyclist's protection and is now established in 25 countries. The brand is rapidly growing and sought a PLM solution to help streamline operations and add flexibility to operations based on best practices.

Monica Lindström, senior manager apparel, POC said, “Like many growing brands, POC was working with standard office tools, including a lot of spreadsheets. As we expand our activities, we couldn't use spread sheets anymore. We decided to look for a solution that would enable us to enhance visibility and transparency and take control over our supply chain from assortment planning to product development. I worked with other PLM systems in the past and I am impressed with Centric's solution which is specifically designed to answer apparel market needs based on industry best practices. This really makes a huge difference.”

Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software said, “We are excited to be part of POC's growth plans. Because best practices are incorporated into Centric PLM, we can help assure methodical and profitable growth as POC expands its high quality product offering.”

POC specialises in protective gear for gravity sports and cyclists. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies. (GK)
