Centric Software, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), has launched a new series of online collaboration package for brands, retailers and manufacturers who are working remotely owing to COVID-19 outbreak.
The package will provide a centralised platform connecting different teams to work in collaboration. The business operations like sample review, design review, buying and go-to-market meeting are all supported by the software.
This will further ensure streamlining the operations that are being done remotely. The three Centric 8 PLMTM Quick-Start Collaboration Package solution can be deployed by the company in a day and is available for the users. Moreover, these are designed according to different needs of the company.
The first sample and quote package is for the companies that are new to digital work and remote collaboration. The solution is equipped with cloud-based technologies for quick collaboration and sharing of data. It digitalises fit reviews, both physical and 3D materials, product sample reviews and vendor quote management.
The second vendor collaboration package is for the companies that already have the Centric PLM package. This allows easy collaboration for sample reviews, RFQ management, evaluation, finalisation and assortment building.
Third is Centric’s digital board solution that allows easy integration of Centric Visual Innovation Platform (CVIP), regardless of one has the PLM solution or not. The solution will allow to develop and finalise the product quantity commitments for global stores digitally.
“Most of our employees are still working from home. Centric PLM greatly supports the normal operation of our business, and product development work has not been interrupted,” said Fanny Fan, from the merchandising department of Chinese fashion brand MAXRIENY.
Fanny added “Members of all departments can enter, view and share information online at any time using up-to-date data resources to ensure efficient collaboration. Our R&D teams can follow the progress of all samples in real time.”
“External influences make the marketplace increasingly unpredictable. Our new packages have been developed in response to requests from our customers to be hyper-responsive to change. Our team will get customers up and running quickly on an easy-to-use, ‘single actionable source of the truth’ digital platform that has been developed specifically to facilitate remote meetings and digital work. We are prepared to help our customers be ready to meet new challenges in the weeks, months and years ahead,” said Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software.
