Centric Fashions PLM Solution for Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler has chosen the product specification, material management and calendar management modules of the Centric 8 product lifecycle management system for apparel and luxury goods companies.

The software will provide a flexible system to support growth, says Patrice Lataillade, COO/CFO of the Proenza Schouler, a women's wear and accessories brand. "We have a young, fast-growing company, known for exceptional design work. We need a systematic approach to our processes that will not compromise or stifle our creative focus."

Deployment of the system should significantly reduce the myriad of Excel sheets the staff has been using to manage the business. "Getting to a single version of the truth about the product means our teams will not be sidetracked from their creative contributions by tedious inefficiencies," Lataillade says.

Proenza Schouler selected Centric 8 for several reasons, Lataillade says, among them its ability to meet the apparel industry' need for flexibility. "The iterative, collaborative design process that is characteristic of the apparel industry demands a PLM system that is designed to incorporate that fluidity," he says. "Centric provides exactly that. It is clearly designed for the apparel industry."
