Centric Software has announced that Descente, the leading Japanese sportswear company, has selected Centric Software to provide its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Terumitsu Watanabe, manager, product engineering division 1, Descente said, “The company began looking for a PLM solution to boost product development and standardisation. Errors and mistakes during the product design phase could potentially cause defects and this is something we wanted to improve. We also found that it was taking too much time to organise and communicate information effectively during product planning and development.”

“We decided to invest in a PLM solution to ensure product quality and speed up the product development process. We knew it would also help us to review our way of working and standardise operations across our brands. We found that Centric could meet our needs. It’s a cloud-based solution, which makes it ideal for global use. The simplicity of deployment is a very attractive feature, as it is configured rather than customised. Because of this, we will be able to deploy the solution in a very short period of time,” he added.

Watanabe said, “We’re looking forward to improving operational efficiency and increasing productivity. It’s going to completely transform our way of working and will help us to create standard operations across a great variety of brands.”

Centric PLM is already in use at two Descente owned brands and now will be rolled out to the remaining brands. (GK)
