KLIM USA adopts 'Centric 8' PLM system from Centric Software

27
Aug '09
Klim USA, a rapidly growing maker of advanced technical riding gear for today's aggressive off-road dirt bike and snowmobile rider, has become the most recent apparel and consumer goods company to purchase Centric 8, the product lifecycle management (PLM) and sourcing system from Centric Software, Inc.

Centric provides PLM and sourcing solutions for companies in the fast-moving consumer goods and fashion industries, including those that globally source private-label products. Klim will use the product sourcing, calendar management and other modules of the Centric 8 system to improve the efficiency and speed of its sample development process, according to Blake Summers, director of information technology at Klim USA.

“Even in this tough environment, Klim USA continues to grow due to our reputation for high quality, technically innovative products,” says Summers. The company's emphasis on quality means nothing goes into production without final sample approval by Klim staff on site at the supplier's location, Summers explains.

With supplier/partners in Canada, Sweden and Asia, enhanced collaboration enabled by Centric sample management capabilities will eliminate errors and time-consuming, back-and-forth communications, improve overall accuracy and speed processes between Klim and its partners. “Centric will enable Klim USA to maintain our high quality standards while reducing costs and bringing products to market more quickly,” adds Summers.

Klim USA evaluated ten PLM solutions before selecting Centric. Summers explains: “Ease of use, rapid deployment and flexible pricing models were important considerations. Centric's richness of functionality—including the calendar management capability—represented far better value than other systems priced significantly higher. And Centric's domain expertise and business-ready solutions will meet our needs now, and enable them to partner with us as we move to the next level.”

“Klim USA represents those dynamic, consumer-driven companies that are succeeding despite the current economic climate,” says Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric. “Klim built its reputation on technically innovation, high-quality products. Now Klim continues to demonstrate foresight by investing in technology to achieve the efficiencies, speed and improved business processes needed to enable the company to meet business and growth objectives.”
