Leading textile company, Kariban, has announced that the company has selected Centric Software’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods, and home décor companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

In an extremely competitive promotional market, streamlining, and modernising the product design and development process became imperative. Kariban’s development phase was particularly time-consuming and slowed down by erratic sample management. Between demand and production, it could take four to six months. Kariban’s distribution activity involved handling a large volume of inventory and referrals, which was extremely complex and slow with the Product Data Management (PDM) tool they had in place. The PDM system was disconnected from other information systems, requiring re-entry of the same data set in different tools with the risk of making cascading errors. The brand set out to find a PLM solution that would allow it to synchronise all stages of the product and collection lifecycle, according to a press release by Centric.

Kariban executives conducted a large market study and tested three PLM solutions. According to Nizam Deepooa, technical and quality director at Toptex / Kariban, Centric Lifestyle PLM was selected for its capabilities and references in the distribution and fast fashion sector.

“Centric offers very flexible configuration. The solution covers the entire value chain from source to final product and will allow us to link our ERP tool and PIM system. This global and open solution perfectly meets our needs,” Olivier Labourel, director of information systems at Toptex / Kariban said.

Centric PLM will encourage exchanges between employees and suppliers around design, product development, supply and production, in particular thanks to Centric’s mobile applications, which are very useful on our many trips. Finally, the system strengthens our employer brand with the most competent employees, by offering them an intuitive and innovative working interface in which they can easily find their brands and work comfortably,” Laurent Marceau, managing director at Toptex / Kariban said.

“We are delighted that Kariban has chosen to partner with Centric. This leading promotional clothing brand was looking for a robust solution capable of following the changes and rhythm of the fashion market in order to manage all aspects of its supply, design and manufacturing chain on a large scale with extreme precision. With Centric PLM, Kariban is on track to achieve its ambitions and prepare for future growth, while offering its clients quality products at an ever-faster pace,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said.
