Centric Software, the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies based in the US, has announced that Ninian & Lester, a vertically operated textile and clothing manufacturer based in Durban, South Africa, has selected Centric Software to provide its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) 8 solution.

In a competitive world facing ever-changing regulatory and customer expectations and disruption, Ninian & Lester was looking for new approaches to evolve the way it works and build the capabilities to deliver on its strategy such as reducing lead times to stay ahead in both local and export markets.

Manfred Paeper, business process and IT manager at Ninian & Lester said, “We desired a PLM solution to support our passionate self-managed teams driving best practices in design thinking while exhibiting extensive innovation potential. We anticipate Centric 8 enabling us to engineer ‘step-change’ improvements into our business far beyond the limitations imposed by more rigidly architected options we investigated. Centric 8 quickly rose to the top of our evaluation shortlist and remained there despite our best efforts to find weaknesses. The product functionality demonstrated via superb customer service from the Centric team prevailed valiantly.”

“We recognised that Centric Software is also an award-winning company and offered us a comprehensive, intuitive, easy to use solution with a simple yet powerful cross-platform mobile and desktop customisable interface view encouraging high end-user adoption. Our goal is to harness digital technology throughout the value chain, building cross-silo and cross-channel capabilities connecting IT, machines and people in real-time in order to manufacture products better and faster, leveraging business intelligence for the demands of omnichannel retailing, our workforce and the future of manufacturing. Centric’s configurable solution will allow us to shorten cycle times, enhance delivery, bring visibility and transparency into the supply chain, and ultimately expand the value we deliver to our customers,” Paeper added.

Centric’s responsiveness and Agile MethodologySM approach helped as did the growing install base and local support partnerships. Centric PLM will enable Ninian & Lester teams to better manage information assets, and collaborate in their development ecosystem with suppliers to add flexibility, control, ‘what-if’ analysis, insight and continuous improvement feedback loops to their processes.
