VT Garment, Thailand based outdoor and sports apparel manufacturer, has opted for Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software has been providing the most innovative enterprise solutions to various segments such as fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies so as to achieve strategic and operational digital transformational goals.
The company, being the leader in Thailand’s innovative textile manufacturing processes since its start in 1981 is trusted by many renowned names such as Patagonia, Jack Wolfskin, Montbell, Adidas and distinct brands based in the United States as well as Europe. VT Garment produces approximately 1,82,000 units including functional clothes, jackets, ski wear, jogging suits, shorts, vests and other apparel per month in its Thailand and Myanmar facilities. Moreover, the company takes pride being one of the largest manufacturers in the world to have earned Fair Trade certification as well as for its award-winning quality and craftsmanship.
Like many manufacturers across the globe, VT garment began looking for a PLM solution in response to the increasing pressure to speed time to market without compromising on the quality aspect. Also, longer lead times during the product development phase was a major challenge for the company since there was too much emphasis on the process rather than products.
The company planned to invest in a PLM solution in order to achieve one single source of truth across the operations, remove data duplication, reduce the time spent organizing data to free up resources for action and gain visibility into timelines and activities across the whole organization. Hence, after considering several options, the company selected Centric 8 PLM
Supporting the above statement Mingkwan Lotharukpong, Product Development Division Manager, VT Garment added that, “Centric has many references from previous implementations and experienced consultants who understand the apparel business.”
Chris Groves, President and CEO, Centric Software said, “We are delighted to announce that VT Garment will be our first partner in Thailand.
