KIKO Milano releases many new products every year. Managing all these new products and their related data was difficult, especially as the data was being managed using an unstructured process by different departments. Because KIKO Milano’s products are used on people, many tests have to be requested and performed, which makes the product development process longer.
KIKO Milano decided to invest in Centric PLM because they recognized that Centric Software is a flexible, customer-oriented company with great expertise and industry knowledge. They were compelled by Centric PLM’s scalability, ability to provide accurate, real-time information to everyone who needs it, and integration with other enterprise systems such as ERP for full visibility across the business.
Centric PLM now drives product development at KIKO Milano and is a key component of their digital transformation. Data is centralized in a single repository that is 100% accurate and visible. Teams have clear milestone management, making it easier to establish project timelines and launch products more reliably. Margins are fundamental for a mass-market brand, and Centric PLM makes it easier for KIKO Milano to offer quality products at affordable prices with precise costing in real time.
