Ernsting's family selects Centric PLM solution
Jan '18
Ernsting’s family, a successful supplier of apparel, home, and living ranges, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies to achieve operational digital transformation goals.

Markus Kramer, head of assortment process and project management at Ernsting’s family, explains that the growth of the company was the most important factor when looking for a PLM system.

Kramer said, “We have a large and tight-knit purchasing team and suppliers around the world. Improving communication and collaboration between all stakeholders, is therefore, essential. We realised that we needed a PLM system for this.”

“After the long and intensive selection process, we became convinced that Centric Software could best meet both our specialist and technical requirements. In addition, Centric specialises in the fashion sector and we knew, that with Centric Software, we would have a partner by our side who is well versed in the specifics of the fashion business. Centric Software shows itself to be a very flexible and technically competent partner. The high-level of understanding of our processes and the willingness to meet special program requirements ultimately contributed to our decision,” Kramer added.

“We expect our collection development process to become even more transparent and efficient with the help of the Centric 8. The increased process quality, the improved system-supported networking between the departments involved and the avoidance of redundant data maintenance will help us to focus even more intensively on what is important to us-our lovingly designed and perfectly combinable collections”, Kramer said.

Ernsting’s family will use Centric PLM in all departments and product groups. The company expects multi-layered results from the implementation of the software.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We are delighted to welcome Ernsting’s family as our newest German customer. The cross-channel provider has grown significantly in recent years and we are proud of the confidence that the company places in us. Centric will accompany and support Ernsting’s family in the next phase of growth. We look forward to a closely collaborating with them as their business moves into the future.” (GK)
