Woolworths Proprietary Limited, a South African retail chain, has selected Centric Software to provide its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for its fashion, beauty, and home business. Centric Software provides IT solutions to fashion, retail, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic digital transformation goals.

Woolworths’ requirements for an innovative and intuitive PLM system grew as their business grew. With their increased product offerings, sourcing regions became more diverse and they also expanded into new trading regions, creating additional complexity in the management of these new channels. Research kicked off to address these issues which led the organisation into the world of modern PLM solutions. After stacking up each business challenge across the product landscape, it became evident that a PLM would be able to address almost all of their challenges.

Following a competitive selection process, Woolworths chose to implement Centric Software’s PLM solution.

Centric was selected as it best fit the current and future business trading model of Woolworths as well as simultaneously providing opportunities to simplify and streamline ways of working. A company culture fit and a fantastic local implementation partner who has experience implementing Centric at other retailers in South Africa made the decision easy.

Having a single version of the truth across all different departments will allow for easier management of collections, a reduction in time to market and improved visibility. Centric will provide the platform to transform design, sourcing, buying, and technology tasks and roles – empowering the Woolworths team to make smarter and faster decisions.

Centric looks forward to partnering with Woolworths to implement a solution that is flexible, works out of the box, and can grow and adapt as their business changes over time.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We are very pleased that Woolworths has selected Centric PLM and would like to welcome them to the Centric family. We will be with Woolworths every step of the way and we look forward to seeing Centric support their business as they move into the future.” (GK)
