Clothing retailer Quest selects Centric 8 PLM suite

Quest, the multi-brand, Columbia-based urban clothing retailer, has selected Centric Software, Inc., to provide its product lifecycle management (PLM) solution.

Olga España, director of projects and processes at Quest said, “Quest will use Centric 8 PLM to support product development, sourcing, materials management, quality management and merchandise planning. Looking forward to the project, Quest will gain more control over raw material costs in addition to overall better budget management.”

She said, “Centric 8 will also improve visibility, enable better decision making, assure product quality, and allow Quest to make “go/no-go” decisions earlier in order to mitigate losses. Improving our quality controls in this way will help to improve our image in the marketplace and bolster our brand recognition as we branch out into new markets.”

She added that when searching for a PLM provider, one major requirement for Quest was the ability to integrate with the company's existing ERP system, which Centric can do seamlessly.

Other factors that tipped the scales in Centric's favour include rich PLM functionality; Centric's rapid, out-of-the-box implementation process, fuelled by Centric's Agile Deployment methodology; and the company's strong global references, according to a press release.

Centric's president and CEO Chris Groves said, “Centric 8 was built specifically with the needs of retail, apparel, footwear and consumer goods companies in mind, Quest will see benefits in 3-4 months, maybe even sooner. We are excited to be part of Quest's growth plans. Because we incorporate best practices into the Centric 8 platform, we can help assure orderly and profitable growth as Quest expands into new markets.” (GK)
