La Maison Simons, the leading Canadian fashion retailer, has successfully implemented Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

La Maison Simons chose Centric 8 PLM following an exhaustive selection process. After a smooth implementation using Centric Software’s Agile DeploymentSMmethodology, La Maison Simons went live on Centric PLM, according to a press release by Centric Software.

“We had to adapt to remain current,” said Tanya Luongo, business analyst at La Maison Simons. “Working with excel and emails was laborious and prone to errors. We needed PLM to reduce product development times, improve supply chain visibility, enhance budgeting clarity for merchandise planning and standardise our processes.

“Centric PLM is best equipped to map our internal processes while offering guidance on best practices. The solution covers the entire product lifecycle and can be integrated with our ERP solution. Centric’s impressive customer list and rapid growth were also important in our decision.”

“Our imports team spends much less time entering data and feels that they contribute more to their real work,” added Luongo. “The merchandise planning module has transformed budget visibility from our ERP solution, enhancing our ability to plan and follow through effectively.”

“With Centric, we’re able to overcome every challenge and my confidence and trust has grown in the Centric team. We look forward to continuing to work with the Centric team and strengthening our community using the Centric 8 solution,” said Richard Simons, vice president of buying and owner at La Maison Simons. “Innovation is in our DNA and the opportunities for future innovation with Centric are endless.”

“We are delighted that La Maison Simons has successfully implemented Centric PLM,” said Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software. “Their culture of innovation is a great fit for Centric and we look forward to collaborating further.”

Simons was founded in 1840 by John Simons as a dry goods store in Quebec City and has since built its reputation on being an accessible and inspired fashion brand. (PC)
