Centric Software has released versions 6.4 and 6.5 of its flagship product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric provides innovative enterprise solutions to retail, fashion, luxury and consumer goods companies. The newest releases are driven by feedback from Customer Advisory Board and close partners from retail, fashion, outdoor and consumer goods.

Centric 8 PLM v6.5 includes innovations to empower new and agile business strategies for the fast-moving multi-category retail environment to leverage the supply chain and to employ 3D technologies to boost design proposals, increase product variety and speed time to market.

“We worked in close partnership with large retailers and brands to create innovations that will make it easier for companies to retail, develop and source a wider variety of products faster and more efficiently. Centric continues to provide solutions that give our partners the edge in a competitive global marketplace,” said Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software.

“This update of Centric 8 responds to the increasing pace of new product introductions, the necessity to maximise best-sellers and the need to create innovative designs quickly,” explains Ron Watson, VP of product at Centric Software. “In order for brands and retailers to offer a variety of well-designed goods, hundreds of thousands of design proposals or prototypes might be reviewed with as few as ten percent retained for development. Brands and retailers also want to minimise risk and keep consumers happy by offering variations of best-selling, core designs.  Of course, all of this has to be done quickly as time to market and time to trend are key,” he added.

Groundbreaking, high-volume sourcing capabilities found in v6.5 are particularly well-suited for brands, retailers and multi-category retailers that co-design and source finished products from suppliers. New tools allow users to quickly issue design briefs to many suppliers and agents simultaneously, gather and iterate designs in Centric 8 and seamlessly launch development leading to a dramatic increase in both product innovation and the number of products launched.

New innovations in Centric 8 introduce unprecedented levels of efficiency by drawing on common product characteristics but simultaneously varying key details. With these new tools, one technical designer can manage hundreds of styles at once and companies can easily produce thousands of variations to serve different target customers, geographies and sales channels.
