Lifestyle brand Mud Pie deploys Centric PLM suite
Centric Software has announced that Mud Pie, an award-winning lifestyle brand and maker of gifts and apparel, has deployed Centric’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) suite. Centric Software develops innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic transformation goals.

Facing design, product development, and production challenges associated with the company’s growth, Mud Pie realised it was time to replace their outdated systems and put a strong and flexible PLM system behind their products. Mud Pie kicked off an implementation project with Centric Software in March 2017 after a selection process that originally began with ten competing vendors.

The deployment of Centric PLM was completed in September 2017, in a total implementation time of four months. Mud Pie implemented Centric’s product specification, material management, sourcing, calendar, and merchandising modules.

Charlene Schoepp, director of IT applications at Mud Pie said, “Centric really suits our needs. Centric’s Adobe Illustrator integration is very important to us, as that’s what our designers use. We wanted to put a system in place that would help, not hinder them. We were also impressed by Centric’s Agile Deployment project methodology. Throughout the implementation, Centric used an iterative approach that meant we would see our requested changes almost instantly, not six months down the line.”

“The Centric team is very focused on customer satisfaction and helping Mud Pie to succeed. We talk to the team daily and they have always been able to answer our questions and steer us toward best practices. The goal of this project was to increase our speed to market and make it easier for our teams to communicate with each other and with suppliers. Centric PLM has given us out of the box tools to succeed in those aims, but the way the system is personalised means that it will grow and develop along with Mud Pie,” he added.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We are pleased that Mud Pie is already experiencing the benefits of Centric PLM. Mud Pie is a unique company that makes a range of gifts and home goods as well as apparel, so their project was an interesting challenge for the Centric team. We’re looking forward to a long partnership together.” (GK)
