Bombas, the innovative, comfort-focused sock brand that donates a pair of socks to homeless shelters for every pair sold, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, outdoor, and consumer goods companies to achieve digital transformation goals.

Bombas is a swiftly growing company with plans to expand into new product categories in the near future. According to Kristen Pandolph, VP, product development at Bombas, the brand’s popularity brought challenges that could only be solved with digital solutions.

“We are growing extremely quickly and adding new product categories, but everything we do is still Excel-based, from creating tech packs to tracking samples. We also end up with a lot of duplicate reports from different departments. As we grow and add categories and partnerships as well as wholesale distribution, we need to make sure all of our information is captured in one place and is up-to-date and accurate. Although we’re hiring people right and left as we grow, we’re still a pretty lean team, so we need to be able to collaborate and communicate efficiently,” Pandolph said in a Centric press release.

Bombas decided to search for a PLM solution and interviewed several vendors before settling on Centric Software’s cloud-based, SaaS solution for small to medium enterprises, Centric SMB.

“Centric offers a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution with the most comprehensive views and configurations for design, development, production and merchandising. We were also impressed with the number of companies on-boarded in the last couple of years. Centric has good out-of-the-box sensibilities and is extremely visual, user-friendly and quick to implement. We can essentially do all of the training internally, which will cut costs,” Pandolph said.

“We expect to see benefits quickly due to the rapid implementation time, saving us the cost of a few extra hires. We expect to eliminate the need for so many emails and streamline tech pack creation and the tracking of samples and packaging. It will be really nice to have all of our information in one place and give multiple team members in multiple departments easy access to that information. A lot of the information is exportable in Excel and PDF, which will make it easy to bring our factory partners on board,” he added.

“We are very happy to announce that Bombas has selected Centric as their PLM partner. Bombas has grown very rapidly, showing that there is a huge appetite for their combination of quality products and a socially-conscious business model. We’re proud to support this innovative young brand with a robust digital platform as they enter a new stage of growth and evolution,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said. (GK)
