Marine Layer, a leader in the production of clothing and accessories, has selected Centric PLM solution. To support Marine Layer’s expansion, the company decided to invest in a PLM solution to manage data and support operations from product design and development to retail. Centric Software is a leading developer of IT solutions based in the US.

Megan Eddings, director of design and product development at Marine Layer said, “Before we selected a PLM solution, we had information stored in a lot of different places. We had tech packs and BOMs in excel sheets and information scattered across various documents and emails. We had printed line sheets with handwritten notes that were a ‘bible’ of up-to-date data, but obviously these were not widely and immediately accessible so it wasn’t an ideal solution. We needed a place to store all of our shared information that people could access quickly and easily.”

Marine Layer organised several demos from leading PLM vendors, and ultimately selected Centric Software’s SMB solution, a flexible, cloud-based system designed specifically for growing small to medium enterprises.

Eddings said, “We did a bunch of demos, but we felt that Centric was the best fit. The possibility of viewing data from different angles was our favourite thing from the beginning, and still is today. You can give each team customised views, depending on their specific needs, and not waste time searching through heaps of other data. The ability to configure the system ourselves is great. We’re on SMB for smaller businesses, and the system is set up to scale with us. We’ve been able to easily add extra attributes and workarounds to suit our particular way of working.”

Marine Layer took just two months to implement Centric SMB, and went live on the system in November 2016. The company has experienced substantial time savings since implementing Centric SMB, and anticipates that the wealth of data building up from previous seasons will help to further increase efficiency in the future.

Centric SMB has also made it easier for Marine Layer to assess the performance of vendors and pinpoint prototype errors, which contributes to better efficiency in product development and manufacturing. Centric SMB is designed to scale as Marine Layer continues to grow, and the soft fabric pioneers see Centric’s PLM solution as an important foundation for managing historical and current data. (GK)
