Centric has announced the latest release of its flagship product lifecycle management (PLM) solution, Centric 8 PLM version 7.0. The IT company, based in the US, provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Developed with Centric Software’s customer partners and customer advisory board, Centric 8 v7.0 offers a variety of powerful innovations designed to bring brands, retailers and manufacturers closer to consumers by accelerating digital transformation, speeding time to market and increasing agility. Centric PLM users now can source a product from multiple suppliers with only a few clicks, orchestrate sophisticated workflows to speed time to market, leverage 3D assets directly from within Centric, respond to more complex sizing requirements from consumers and more. Centric also recently announced 3D integration with Browzwear, CLO, and EFI Optitex making Centric PLM a hub for end-to-end 3D product development, the company said in a press release.

Centric 8 v7.0 empowers brands in the fashion, retail, and consumer goods industries to rapidly respond to an evolving marketplace enabling faster product innovation, closing gaps between product inception and time to market while creating more unique, high-quality and personalised products to get closer to consumers than ever before.

Retailers and brands often source the same product from multiple suppliers for a variety of reasons such as proximity, capacity, costs, convenience, and compliance. Global companies can now easily source the same product from multiple suppliers to speed time to market, reduce their environmental footprint, lower shipping costs, enable the production of additional products last minute and more.

Other innovations in sourcing save time and streamline vendor communications with the ability to duplicate or update an existing supplier request when evaluating proposals and samples.

Centric 8 v7.0 improves team agility and market responsiveness allowing users to seamlessly integrate workflows in PLM with the addition of a powerful workflow and decision automation platform, compliant with the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 standard. Improved workflow means that teams are more efficient with consistent execution, reduced errors, improved collaboration and easier achievement of product development milestones to get products to market faster.

Building on the recent development of several 3D-enabled features in Centric PLM, Centric 8 v7.0 offers new 3D visualisation enhancements that can be used with or without a connection to a 3D CAD solution, even for users not specifically trained in the art of 3D development.

Centric 8 v7.0 also supports the creation of high-quality and better fitting products consumers demand. Companies with complex sizing requirements will benefit from the addition of a 2-dimensional sizing matrix on Bills of Material (BOMs), showing a visual 2-dimensional correlation (or pattern) between product sizes and the material/component sizes used in the product.

“The latest release of Centric 8 PLM delivers new innovations based on market feedback that creates an even more powerful digital platform for shortened time to market and increased responsiveness. Centric 8 v7.0 enables greater focus, agility, and improved product innovation capabilities so brands, retailers, and manufacturers can get closer to consumers,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said.
