UK apparel firm Barbour deploys Centric PLM suite
Barbour, a premium outdoor and lifestyle brand headquartered in the UK, has selected Centric Software to provide their Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational transformation goals.

Neil Thursby, head of technology at Barbour said, “We first started looking into a PLM solution because we were working with an older PDM system which our business had outgrown. We needed an innovative solution to help us improve visibility and collaboration during product development that also allowed for seamless remote access.”

Thursby said, “We found that Centric’s solutions are intuitive to use and have one hundred percent out of the box functionality that will help us to achieve our goals without costly and time-consuming customisation. Centric is renowned as the PLM market leader and is clearly passionate about pushing the boundaries of PLM. We needed an innovative solution that was flexible and easy to use – Centric 8 PLM was an obvious choice.”

“Most of our PLM users will be across design, product development, garment technician, and sourcing roles. Once we start working with the Centric team to get the system in place, we’re confident that we will see great improvements in visibility, productivity, and speed to market. We’re looking forward to having a single version of the truth that everyone can work from within the business,” he added.

Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said, “We would like to extend a warm welcome to Barbour, one of Britain’s most prestigious and historic brands. We are proud that Barbour chose Centric PLM and look forward to supporting their business as they move into the future.” (GK)
