Centric Software completes first PLM project in Thailand, driving speed to market for leading sportswear OEM/ODM
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) - VT Garment, an outdoor and sports apparel manufacturer in Thailand, has successfully adopted Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Founded in 1981, VT Garment is a leader in Thailand’s innovative textile manufacturing industry, designing and manufacturing sportswear and outerwear for names such as Patagonia, Jack Wolfskin, Montbell and Adidas. VT Garment takes pride in being one of the largest manufacturers in the world to have earned Fair Trade certification.
Responding to industry pressure to increase speed to market, VT Garment selected Centric 8 PLM. VT Garment became Centric's first customer in Thailand, and successfully implemented the solution in just eight months.
“We were very happy with the Agile DeploymentSM process as it enabled us to visualize and learn about the system quickly,” says Mingkwan Lotharukpong, Product Development Division Manager at VT Garment. “The Centric team provided solutions to every scenario we face. The consultants are professional and always respond within 24 hours.”
As Mingkwan continues, “Centric PLM provides a real-time single source of truth for product-related data using an Excel-like interface, which is familiar to our users. We have standardized the product development process and removed the problem of duplicate data entry. It's easier to plan actions and manage sample stock. We expect Centric PLM to save time and increase accuracy in costing, improve accuracy in sample-making and reduce the time spent preparing material to create samples.”
“Centric PLM has already changed our way of working. Employees can concentrate more on the product and offering services to customers, rather than data entry,” concludes Mingkwan.
“We are happy to announce that VT Garment has successfully implemented Centric PLM,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “VT Garment is already enjoying benefits such as greater speed, a single source of truth and improved visibility into product development. We are proud to partner with them now and in the future.”
