MAC, German trousers specialist, has selected Centric Software’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric Software, headquartered in the US, provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods, and home decor companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
MAC decided to implement a PLM solution to make product development processes faster and more secure in the face of increasing business complexity. After an in-depth selection process, Centric’s market-driven strategy and the team’s flexibility were deciding factors in MAC’s decision to move forward with Centric Fashion PLM; the solution most closely fit their requirements and goals, the company said in a press release.
“Our goal is to migrate from Excel-driven product development to a database-oriented approach with a single source of truth at our fingertips. We want to establish a product development workflow for the complete process, including the planning, execution and quality management of our trousers collections. Centric is a modern, easy-to-use system with an innovative range of modules to cover the complete end-to-end process. Their coaching approach to project implementation methodology is another important differentiator for us,” Eveline Schoenleber, managing director at MAC said.
MAC expects to build a digital foundation with Centric Fashion PLM that will drive improvements across every part of the organisation.
“We expect to increase the transparency and flexibility of our product development process and Centric Fashion PLM will serve as the key basis for our quality department to ensure the highest quality standard of MAC products. Centric Fashion PLM will also be the foundation for future digitalisation projects. After a rigorous selection process, we are very confident in Centric’s approach and know that their PLM solution is the right fit for us,” Schoenleber said.
“We would like to welcome MAC, our latest fashion customer in Europe. We’re looking forward to working closely with MAC to ensure they achieve their PLM digital transformation goals and continue to deliver high-quality apparel with greater efficiency,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said.
