US sportswear brand, Gant, has selected Centric Software, the leading PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solution for fashion, retail, and luxury companies, to provide its PLM suite. With plans to become the leading lifestyle brand, Gant plans to use Centric 8 to improve communication across sub-brands Gant Rugger, Gant Diamond G, and Gant Original.

Recognising a serious need to improve information sharing and collaboration between different parts of the company, Gant recently decided to take a new digital approach to this challenge. They began the search for a PLM solution that would help them to streamline their information, make data more visible, and make better decisions.

Having considered a selection of different solutions, Gant chose Centric based on their deep understanding of how to integrate the creative processes of fashion into an organised IT tool. Gant will use the entire Centric 8 suite including mobile apps, across all of their departments to improve product hit rate, shorten lead times, and gain better margins.

Carl Borg, global IT director at Gant said, “We are entering a stage of growth at Gant where we need to be more digital and intelligent about how we design and develop products towards our Gant consumer. We want to do this through improving our digital product development processes, and that is why we sought out a PLM solution. Centric lives and breathes lifestyle and therefore understand the Gant world. They recognise that PLM is not just about the tool – it is about the ability to organise and direct the creative aspects of design and production.”

Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software said, “We are honoured to have been chosen by Gant to become their partner in PLM and to support their new digital strategy. Gant's brand represents a commitment to quality and attention to detail, and a spirit of pride in their work that goes all the way back to their origins. We are looking forward to working with Gant to help them to achieve their goal of doubling revenue growth by 2020, and we are excited that our PLM solution will be a crucial part of Gant's plans.” (GK)
