Fashion retailer Yoox Net-A-Porter selects Centric PLM suite
Yoox Net-A-Porter Group (YNAP), the world’s leading online luxury fashion retailer, has selected the Centric PLM software. From its headquarters in Silicon Valley and offices around the world, Centric Software provides a digital transformation platform for the most prestigious names in fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods.

Marco Gallo, product developer at YNAP said, “With 17 years of luxury fashion ecommerce experience, we have a unique perspective on our customers’ buying habits and patterns. We use our expertise to deliver products that fulfil their demands. And when we started developing our private labels, we approached the whole process with the same start-up mentality that underpins this entire Group. We used what we had – email and spreadsheets – which worked perfectly at the beginning but as the volumes increased, we quickly realised we needed a single view of our product, from design to delivery, with a detailed view of all the processes in-between.”

“We needed a holistic view of production. We hoped that having the right PLM would help us to manage the entire lifecycle of a product from prototype to production, check the gap between the initial budget we have for each brand and the real cost of goods ordered, track the cost of samples, and communicate with suppliers using one standard format and platform. We felt that Centric Software provided the best tool for our specific requirements.”

YNAP selected Centric Software to provide its PLM solution in January 2017 and kicked off a six-month implementation project shortly afterwards. The company selected Centric’s flagship Centric 8 PLM enterprise suite, with Adobe and ERP integration.

For YNAP, Centric’s PLM solution has already resulted in a faster and more efficient product development process. Centric and YNAP will work together closely to ensure the PLM is continually updated to meet YNAP’s evolving needs. (GK)
