Coalision, the Canadian company behind activewear brand Lole and outdoor clothing brand Paradox, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

“Our main challenge involves Lolë, our major brand. We needed to upgrade our design processes to be even more effective. Two years ago, we began a complete examination of our IT infrastructure. It became clear that to gain a share in the digital world, we needed PLM. We had been working with a process in our ERP system but the way we were creating wasn’t seamless or collaborative enough. We wanted a PLM solution that could help us work better internally, reduce time to market and analyse our sourcing and materials more effectively,” David Turcotte, retail system administrator at Coalision said in a Centric press release.

Coalision considered several PLM solutions from major vendors but ultimately made their choice based on Centric’s fashion expertise and flexibility.

“We found it really interesting that Centric PLM is a web-based application. Our team liked the software’s flexible approach and user-friendly interface. Centric PLM is specifically created for apparel and footwear, whereas other solutions originated in industries such as automotive or manufacturing. The Centric team has deep apparel and footwear knowledge and they were extremely understanding of our business needs throughout the decision-making process,” Turcotte said.

“Centric is going to transform the way we think about products. As retail system administrator at Coalision, it is my mission to make sure that the company uses the latest technology to meet business needs and to always try to give our employees the best possible technology and tools. Centric PLM will re-centralise our product data and completely overhaul the way our design and product teams work. We expect to see better collaboration and faster time to market,” Turcotte added.

“We would like to welcome Coalision as our latest partner in Canada. Like Centric, Coalision is a company focused on innovation, performance and progressive product development. We are delighted to support the evolution of their digital infrastructure with Centric PLM,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said. (GK)
