CAMPBELL, Calif., 12 September, 2019 – Centric Software is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Visionnaire.
Visionnaire, a unique Italian high-end furniture and interior design brand based in Bologna, Italy, started in 1959, when Cavalli brothers, Vittorio, and Pompeo, had the revolutionary idea of using polyurethane, a new, soft and durable material, for furniture design. Visionnaire’s commitment to bring unique and high-living standards has been internationally recognized and the brand is now present in 55 countries and is managing more than 3,500 catalog products.
Claudia Poli, SCM and Project Manager, recalls the difficulties of expanding the product range and growing internationally with its previous methods.
“We got to the point where we were no longer able to keep up with demand and fulfill orders on schedule using our existing ERP and communication systems,” she continues. “This is a time of delicate balance for Visionnaire, as we are trying to increase production and sales volumes while maintaining our renowned quality and craftsmanship. We needed to find a technology solution that could provide us with the right architecture and tools to support our growth.”
Today, Visionnaire is already reaping incredible rewards and is on track to completing its revolutionary digital project in 2020. Poli discusses key benefits specific to the industry “Centric PLM is very versatile, giving us the ability to start at different points in the product configuration process. This is particularly important for us as we offer finished catalog designs as well as products with varying degrees of customization, ranging from made-to-measure to highly bespoke pieces.”
Visionnaire looks forward to the future with Centric PLM, “it will provide the foundation of product data we need to maintain excellent craftsmanship and support our plans for future growth.”
How is Visionnaire transforming its operations with Centric PLM?
Visionnaire’s commitment to bring unique and high-living standards began back in 1959, when Cavalli brothers, Vittorio, and Pompeo, had the revolutionary idea of using polyurethane, a new, soft and durable material, for furniture design. Since its first appearance, the group, has been marked by the concept of innovation, constantly renewing the production and the idea of interior design, Ipe Cavalli finds its own space in the market and soon became a byword of fashion, taking part in the first “Salone Internazionale del mobile” fair of Milan in 1961.
