The Safariland Group, a global provider of safety and survivability products for the public safety, military, professional, and outdoor markets, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides the enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies.

Walter Wilhelm, vice president of product integration at Safariland said, “Until this year, a few of our smaller brands had their own PLM systems, but we mainly operated using a mix of Excel, ERP, Illustrator, and Word – all the usual suspects. We need efficiencies, and we need to centralise data. In order to maintain our quality, share innovations, collaborate across brands and acquire materials as a group, we needed to have a centralised PLM system.”

“As manufacturers of products that need to meet certain standards of protection, we don’t have long lists of raw materials suppliers to work with, but it’s critical that engineering changes to a product are communicated throughout the structure, reaching design, procurement, and manufacturing. With Centric PLM, engineering changes and comments, as well as factory reviews and quality checks will be captured in real time, ensuring efficiencies are gained and complications are mitigated at the earliest stages. One of the most exciting aspects of implementing Centric will be the ability to share materials and data across related brands,” he added.

Wilhelm said, “Centric is known as the leader in PLM innovation, constantly looking at how the system is used in the real world and how to evolve it. The entire Centric team has been very receptive, attentive and responsive throughout our implementation. We have seen our feedback developed into features in the system. I can confidently say this is a quality product that is leading the industry and supporting its users.”

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “Safariland is a unique company, producing a variety of life-saving products that must meet the highest standard of quality. We are honoured that Safariland has confidence in our system to support the production of innovative products that people depend on in the front lines of law enforcement and military activity all over the world.” (GK)
