Centric PLM reduces Nina Ricci's time to market by 15 days
Jan '16
The Nina Ricci brand known worldwide for its iconic dresses and luxurious range of ready-to-wear couture collections has been able to reduce time to market by 15 days by using Centric Software's PLM.

Centric 8 PLM solution offered support for the entire product lifecycle reducing the time to reach market by 15 days and also eliminated the unproductive time spent searching for information in disconnected files. It also offered a faster and more accurate costing and pricing by decreasing the data errors by 20-30 per cent. This also resulted in lowering the data entry time by 10 days for each collection, Centric Software said in a media release.

According to Emmanuel Debaene, the operation director of Nina Ricci, previously they treated every collection as completely new and had no ability to accurately cross-refer, compare and analyse information throughout styles and years.

Reflecting the importance that the Nina Ricci brand places on materials, its PLM implementation began with its materials management. Presently, PLM is being used from the earliest stage of merchandise planning right through its product launch.

As Debaene explains, “Centric 8 integrates the whole industrialisation process that follows a fashion show, and includes the technical data sheet, patterns, grading and alterations. It covers and guides us until the product is ready for production.”

Debaene further added that Nina Ricci has implemented all core modules of Centric 8 PLM and three Centric mobile app namely Capture It, Collection Book, and Sample Review. (NA)
