Kashion Boosts Design Efficiency with Centric PLM

Leading clothing manufacturer and designer gains a competitive edge with PLM by improving collaboration, R&D precision and value creation

CAMPBELL, Calif., 22 August, 2023 – Centric Software® is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Kashion.

Ningbo Kashion Garment Co., Ltd (Kashion) is a full-service company that specializes in fashion design, development, production and sales. Focusing on women’s fashion, Kashion has built a comprehensive supply chain management system that provides design, development and production services to almost 100 international fashion brands. Kashion produces about 2.5 million pieces of clothing each month.

Before partnering with Centric Software, Kashion had set up an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-based sample management system to store all R&D information. However, the large volume of product R&D data made collaboration inefficient, both within design R&D and between design R&D and other departments.

Kashion had been searching for a PLM solution since 2018 to optimize its procedures and product data management. After an in-depth examination of PLM providers within and outside China, Kashion selected Centric Software as their PLM partner.

Mr. Xu Pengyun, CEO of Kashion, says, “We are very pleased to have Centric Software as our partner, as their solution exactly meets our needs, especially in terms of process analysis and resource integration capabilities.”

As a result of using Centric PLMTM, Kashion’s design team is enjoying more efficient collaboration. Improved R&D precision and increased value creation are giving Kashion a competitive edge in product R&D.

“We see great development potential and numerous applications for Centric PLM, and hope to continue leveraging PLM to promote efficiency and lay a solid digital foundation for the development of the company,” says Mr. Xu.
