On, the Swiss running shoe company known for its innovative CloudTec shoe technology, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies for strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

On’s rate of growth and the addition of a new line of performance clothing brought challenges, according to Marc Maurer, chief operations officer at On, and led them to begin a PLM selection process in 2017.

Marc Maurer said, “We’re growing very fast, and the whole company is digitally transforming. We knew a PLM system would help centralise and organise information that currently exists across different departments and files. We wanted to minimise the risk of losing information due to misunderstandings and make it easier for people to get the information they need.”

After getting an overview of various PLM providers, On decided to do some in-depth comparison workshops with Centric and two other solutions. In a survey of On’s designers and product developers who tested the systems, Centric came out on top.

Maurer said, “The survey responses focused on how user-friendly and logical Centric PLM is. Centric’s Excel-like interface is a big advantage, as people who had never worked with a PLM system before felt comfortable using it. We were impressed by Centric’s flexibility and knew that we could adjust the system to suit our needs as we continue to grow. We have new people joining us all the time, and don’t have time to do full training days every month. With a short introduction, people can jump right into Centric PLM.”

On began using Centric’s Field Testing mobile app earlier this year and are looking forward to beginning a full PLM implementation.

“We expect Centric will make it possible to work more efficiently. We’ll save time, and therefore money. It will give us a reliable knowledge base of materials, models and previous collections that can be used by all departments, from R&D to marketing. PLM will provide transparency between departments, making it easier for everyone to see what is happening in each one,” Maurer added.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We would like to welcome On again to the Centric family. On has revolutionised the running shoe market with innovative technology and is on course to continue their amazing rate of growth. We’re delighted On chose our PLM solution to provide a digital foundation for expansion and will continue to be close partners in the future.” (GK)
