VT Garment, an outdoor and sports apparel manufacturer in Thailand, has seleced 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.
Like many manufacturers, VT Garment began looking for a PLM solution in response to increasing pressure to speed time to market without compromising on quality.
“We had long lead times during our development processes, which was a major challenge. There was too much emphasis on process, rather than products. We wanted a PLM solution to achieve one single source of truth across our operations, remove data duplication, reduce the time spent organising data to free up resources for action and gain visibility into timelines and activities across the whole organisation,” Mingkwan Lotharukpong, product development division manager at VT Garment said.
VT Garment considered several options, but after making contact with Centric Software, they selected Centric 8 PLM.
“Centric has many references from previous implementations and experienced consultants who understand the apparel business. They offer an out-of-the-box solution with minimal customisation and the user interface resembles an Excel format, which is familiar to our teams. We expect to fluidify communication between departments and make users’ lives easier. Implementing Centric PLM will shorten lead times, align internal processes and help us to clearly communicate expectations so we can focus more on product,” Lotharukpong said.
“We are delighted to announce that VT Garment will be our first partner in Thailand. VT Garment is an exemplary OEM/ODM company that leads the way in manufacturing with a commitment to innovation, quality and sustainability. We look forward to partnering with them as they streamline operations and set the foundation for future growth,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric Software said. (GK)
