Centric Software has announced that version 6 of Adobe Connect that integrates Adobe Illustrator within Centric Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is now available. Centric provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Seamlessly connected to Centric 8 PLM and Centric SMB PLM, Adobe Connect enables designers and product developers to sketch, create colours and build out other details for design briefs and product specifications within Adobe Illustrator, the industry-standard vector graphics app for sketching, illustration, logo, icon and typography design. Designers and product developers access product related information shared by other teams in Centric PLM such as details about colours, fabrics, trims and other materials but work completely from within the Illustrator interface. Creative and technical teams can seamlessly collaborate using the two platforms, using whichever user experience they prefer, empowering designers, merchandisers, product developers, sourcing and retail teams to work harmoniously, said Centric Software in a press release.

In version 6 of Adobe Connect, designers initiate styles and materials from within the Illustrator environment by working from templates or creating new items, speeding up and streamlining the process of beginning a new design.

“Adobe Connect minimises non-value-added work for designers so that they can focus on the creative and technical aspects of products,” said Ron Watson, VP product at Centric Software. “Designers upload files to Centric PLM to share across carryovers or similar products, eliminating the need to manage a separate file for each individual style. They don’t need to go into Centric PLM when they start working on a new concept. They can begin immediately in Illustrator while their work is seamlessly updated in PLM, enabling closer collaboration with other teams.”

“Centric Software’s Adobe Connect makes it easier for our designers to focus on their creative work while staying in their preferred environment.  By seamlessly accessing textiles, fabrics and colours from within Centric PLM, our design teams have eliminated re-work and time spent searching for data resulting in shorter product development times for all of our collections. The deep integration with Centric PLM offers a more streamlined experience while allowing increased collaboration across our teams,” said Jorge Mario Serrate, chief of solutions at Studio F, a leading Colombian womenswear brand.

The latest release includes many automations such as accelerating the development of carryovers, localisation to meet translation needs, re-sizing images, colourway development and handy time saving improvements such as type ahead functionality.

“We are committed to creating market-leading, innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software. “The latest release of Adobe Connect builds a seamless bridge between Adobe Illustrator and Centric PLM that empowers designers without disrupting creative flow and ultimately shortens the product development lifecycle.” (PC)
