German womenswear company, Simplicity Trade, has opted for Centric Software’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to digitise its product development process.
With this implementation, the company plans to transform its product development process to a more seamless and well-managed operation.
The company unites two brands, Opus and Someday.
While Opus, a specialist trouser brand founded in 2000, now designs complete women’s outfits, Someday, founded in 2015, is more into casual womenswear.
The software will allow the brand to eliminate the use of Excel sheets and create transparency within the team. The solution will provide a collaborative platform reducing the errors and increasing speed and efficiency.
Substantiating on this, Susanne Vatter, Head of Design, Opus said “We want to eliminate different Excel sheets and work from a single point of information. This will reduce errors at the source, enable us to work with greater speed and efficiency, and increase transparency.”
Simplicity selected Centric Fashion PLM because of its user-friendless and Centric Software’s expertise in the field.
Adding to this, Susanne said that “The Centric interface is attractive, web-based and comprehensible at first sight. The system satisfies our requirements and makes it possible to implement our processes much more easily. For instance, with Centric Adobe Connect, the Centric innovation that integrates Adobe Illustrator, our designers will work in a familiar environment while streamlining their creative design activities.”
Susanne further said “Centric has a large portfolio of fashion customers and the Centric team offers expert advice while working with us in an open-minded, participatory and solution-focused way. We look forward to achieving a state of permanent innovation. Centric fashion PLM will make our processes more dynamic.”
Expressing happiness, Chris Groves, President and CEO, Centric Software said “We are delighted to welcome Simplicity as our latest partner in Europe. Simplicity’s digital strategy begins with facilitating the creative power of its design department, and Centric fashion PLM will provide an ideal foundation for their full digital transformation.”
