Streamline Home Décor from Concept to Replenishment

The home décor market faces similar challenges to other industries that are driven by style trends and rapidly evolving consumer behavior. Home décor companies have to stay on top of shifting consumer demographics and expectations, changes in living patterns, the influence of social media, demand for more sustainable products, the growth of ecommerce and the movement of digitally native brands into bricks and mortar.

How can home décor companies sell to more markets, distribute through more channels, keep up with the accelerating pace of the market, uphold sustainability standards and combat pressure on margins while maintaining quality and competing with big online retailers and nimble digital disruptors?

Centric PLM drives digital transformation for home décor brands and retailers, streamlining operations and driving efficiencies for a faster time to market and time to trend. Centric PLM is a market-driven, cloud-based, mobile digital transformation platform for all categories and all sizes of home décor companies to boost product innovation, expand product lines, manage more SKUs, improve supplier collaboration, drive transparency and increase visibility to optimize product margins and get more products to market faster.

Centric PLM Quick Start and Agile Deployment

Home décor customers innovating with Centric PLM

“We had multiple divisions with work in progress and no consistency in the process. Communication with vendors and our team members in Asia was all via email. We had no central hub of collaboration and didn’t have visibility into the entire product development process.”

VP of Business Innovation
Four Hands

“We chose Centric PLM to manage assortments, merchandise planning, sourcing and to streamline the supplier RFQ process. We now have centralized product data for hundreds of branded and private-label consumer goods and packaged foods products for better visibility, team and supplier collaboration and faster time to market.”
