Keen adopts Centric PLM to improve supply chain efficiency

Keen, an outdoor lifestyle brand from Oregon, US, has adopted Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). Earlier Keen’s methods for managing product development were unable to meet challenges of shrinking time to market, globalisation of product portfolios and margin pressures. Today, Keen is seeing benefits after just one season with Centric PLM.

The company has streamlined its complex global supply chain and dramatically improved efficiency, with one team able to cut their report output time by 50 per cent. Problems are now identified and solved earlier during product development, said Keen in a press release.

“Our product development process was excel and email-heavy, leading to a lot of confusion about which version of what document was sent when. We had ‘many sources of truth’ and it was slowing us down. We needed a solution to keep pace with current company growth and set a foundation for scalable future growth,” said Aaron Hellickson, product development technology manager at Keen.

“PLM gives other parts of the business visibility to what’s happening on the product creation floor,” added Hellickson. “It has opened up communication between the different stakeholders across the organisation.” (PC)
