Gant, American lifestyle brand that offers premium clothing, accessories and home furnishings for men, women and kids, has announced a successful Centric Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) implementation on time, on scope and on budget. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies.

With ambitions to become the leading lifestyle brand in the world by 2020, Gant decided to adopt a new digital approach across all of its sub-brands under House of Gant; Gant Rugger, Gant Diamond G, and Gant. Only six months after the project kicked off, teams at Gant Diamond G are already using the Centric 8 PLM suite across all product categories.

Carl Borg, global IT director at Gant, “We wanted to improve our product development process and switching to Centric PLM system was a major stepping stone in reducing time to market and having greater control over the entire product lifecycle. But working with Centric is not only about implementing a PLM system. It is about developing new ways of working together and benefiting from the industry leader’s best practices and expertise. Our goal for 2017 is to scale our Centric PLM system to our two other brands Gant Rugger and Gant across all of our products and concepts to improve our product hit rate and shorten lead times.”

Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software said, “We are very proud to have gone live across Gant Diamond G and fully met our commitment to support their new digital strategy. It is a confirmation that our Agile DeploymentSM methodology speeds value delivery and we are looking forward to supporting Gant in achieving its aggressive growth plan.” (GK)
