[Retail Seminar] Auchan & Centric PLM: Maximizing Planning, Sourcing & Sustainability to Drive Growth

Online | June 11, Français 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

11 June — 9:00 a.m – 2:00 p.m. — Paris

This event will be in French.

The Yellow Vests movement, the 2019 December strikes in France, Coronavirus, changes in consumer behavior, climate change…these are just some of the major disruptors that are greatly impacting the supply chain for French retailers. To face these challenges and keep up with market trends, retail brands must adopt the right technologies to boost business agility, and empower teams to make faster, revenue-critical decisions.

 Join Centric Software® and Accenture with special guest and a world-leading retailer, Auchan, on June 11, and discover:

  •     How to achieve margin visibility throughout the entire process, and how technology enables merchandise planning teams to identify bestsellers and focus on launching profitable products to market.
  •     How Auchan successfully manages thousands of products across several non-food categories, streamlines private label and supplier co-product development while reducing time to market with Centric Retail PLM™.
  •     The different ways that Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) technology streamlines supplier management and procurement, especially in a time of global crisis when last-minute changes need to be made.
  •     Accenture’s insights on the impact of climate change on fashion, retail and other consumer goods industries and how brands can take initiatives to go green and join the circular economy.
