Children Worldwide Fashion Group (CWF) has selected Centric Software, Inc., to provide its product lifecycle management (PLM) system.

CWF, a European leader in top-of-the-line and luxury children’s fashion, purchased the Business Planning, Calendar Management, Collection Management, Materials Management, Product Sourcing, Product Specification, Quality Management and Collection Management modules of the Centric 8 PLM system.

All CWF brands, categories and product departments will use the software from Centric, which provides PLM software for footwear, retail, apparel, luxury and consumer goods companies.

“The Centric PLM system will allow CWF to replace a host of separate e-mail- and spreadsheet-based systems,” says Bertrand Beaufort, chief information officer of CWF. With the Centric PLM system’s “single version of the truth” about products, CWF will be able to streamline the product development process.

CWF also valued the configurable, out-of-the-box characteristics of the Centric 8 suite. By incorporating industry business best practices and data models into the core PLM system, Centric can provide a much faster deployment. Centric will use its Agile Deployment(SM) implementation methodology to deploy the CWF system. Leveraging the principles of agile software development, Agile Deployment allows for implementations faster than other PLM systems.

“We are delighted to add a category leader like CWF to our list of partners," says Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric. CWF valued Centric’s experience with fashion industry customers and understanding of the apparel industry’s needs, he adds. “The company will be able to make better, faster decisions, and see results in optimizing product development timelines and costs.”
