SAXX Underwear, the men’s underwear brand, has implemented Centric Software’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for emerging enterprises, Centric SMB. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

In order to expand into new lines of men’s apparel such as swimwear and sleepwear, SAXX needed to replace their manual spreadsheet-based product development process with a robust, reliable digital foundation.

“The product design and development team spent a lot of time producing tech packs and had problems with version control. We didn’t have confidence in data and developing analytics meant going through spreadsheets manually. We wanted one source of truth to create tech packs and communicate with vendors efficiently, so we began a PLM selection process,” Albert Chow, IT director at SAXX said.

Based on three main criteria – functionality, long-term cost and user-friendliness – SAXX selected Centric SMB, Centric Software’s SaaS, cloud-based PLM solution for emerging brands. SAXX started to see ROI within three months of going live, according to Centric.

“The difference is like night and day. The process of creating a tech pack is now collaborative and faster. Long term, Centric will enable us to be more efficient, handle more product lines with the same staff levels and focus on getting work done rather than worrying about data accuracy,” Chow added.

SAXX plans to eventually integrate Centric SMB with their enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and e-commerce platform, and the user reaction has been universally positive.

“We are delighted that SAXX is experiencing great results with Centric SMB. Centric SMB is designed to scale with growing businesses, and we are proud to work with SAXX to drive their expansion,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said.
