Feb '16
Scandinavia's leading tent and sleeping bag manufacturer, Helsport, has selected Centric Cloud, a new cloud-based, SaaS PLM solution specifically tailored with small businesses in mind.

With an ultra-fast implementation, Centric Cloud is based on innovative technology and key industry learning inspired by more than 125 PLM project implementations with leading fashion, consumer, and sporting goods companies.

As they continued to grow their business and expand their activities, Helsport looked for a solution that would enable them to increase the volume of their products and enhance communication with their suppliers without sacrificing quality.

Centric Cloud PLM is tailored for small businesses and designed to give them access to same innovations and benefits as accessible to larger companies, thus helping to level the competitive playing field. It will help Helsport speed product development, improve costs and increase market responsiveness.

Helsport also wanted to facilitate communication between product development, marketing, production and sales teams to improve data quality and reduce the number of errors across the value chain, according to a press release.

Stein Helliksen, CEO at Helsport said, “As we expand our activities, we couldn't use excel spread sheets anymore. We decided to look for a solution that would enable us to improve efficiency, enhance visibility and control over our supply chain to reduce lead times and improve product margins. We chose Centric Cloud PLM because of its simplicity and flexibility. It is a comprehensive PLM solution which can adapt to our needs as our business grows.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We are excited to be part of Helsport's growth plans as we share their passion for innovation and excellence. We are happy to have developed an inclusive PLM solution that will enable Helsport, as well as other small companies in Europe, to elevate their businesses, be more competitive on a global scale and dream big.” (GK)
