Riachuelo, one of the top three retail chains in Brazil, has selected Centric Software’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric Software, from the US, provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Riachuelo had purchased a PLM solution a few years ago, but were dissatisfied with its lack of flexibility and support. The company needed a new platform to give teams improved visibility, speed and collaboration, ultimately reducing costs and time to market.

“The dynamism of the current market demands more agility and innovation when developing and bringing new products to market, so it is necessary to create collections in the shortest possible time to market, minimising costs and maximising perceived value and quality,” Flávia Martino, trend research, product design and product development project manager at Lojas Riachuelo said in a press release by Centric.

“We knew the right PLM solution would help us to improve control, agility and cross-area collaboration. We wanted more reliable information with fewer errors, reduced rework and costs and a way to eliminate manual and decentralised processes. Centric PLM suits Riachuelo’s way of working. It’s highly flexible and can deliver real integration between manufacturing and retail. Centric’s apps bring the mobility and speed we need to develop collections, quickly. The Centric team is focused on customer needs and building a win-win relationship. With Centric PLM in place, we expect decreased time to market, reduced time to sample creation, process standardisation, productivity gains, better product data governance, and cost savings. Martino said.

“We are delighted to announce that Riachuelo has chosen Centric as a PLM partner. Riachuelo is investing in the future by giving teams a digital platform to boost communication, speed and efficiency, and we are looking forward to seeing their results with Centric PLM,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said.
