Founded in France in 1978, Kiabi revolutionised ready-to-wear clothing with the concept of affordable fashion for the whole family. Now an international group with 500 stores in 17 countries, Kiabi generates nearly €2 billion in turnover. Kiabi’s ambitious development strategy is based on a cutting-edge, cross-channel model.
To handle growth, Kiabi needed more visibility and transparency, a single version of the truth and business best practices to harmonise information systems. Kiabi assessed several software options before selecting Centric PLM, said Itfas in a press release.
“We have been expanding our procurement operations in Asia,” said François Perche, information system manager at Kiabi. “We are now closer to our supply chain partners and we are willing to integrate more functions into this structure. As we continue to grow and hire people, we need adequate tools to collaborate efficiently and support them.”
“Centric has great fashion and retail references, such as Auchan, Kering Group, Li & Fung, Loblaws, LVMH, Mango, PVH and Under Armour. They are known to bring a lot of experience, best practices and powerful out-of-the-box features. During the RFP process, we were impressed by the potential configurability and flexibility of Centric PLM,” added Perche. “With Centric PLM in place, we hope to streamline our fragmented application landscape, update outdated systems to a more sustainable technology stack and realign our business processes with industry best practices.”
“Centric offers a lot of modules to fit our future needs, so we expect this partnership to be long term,” concluded Perche.
“We would like to welcome Itfas and the Group Kiabi on-board,” said Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software. “Kiabi is an innovative company who will use Centric for complex collaboration across many internal and external users, departments and locations. We’re delighted to partner with Kiabi for their digital transformation.” (PC)
