Top sleepwear and loungewear supplier partners with Centric Software® to empower brands in a competitive market
CAMPBELL, Calif., July 19, 2022 – Qingdao Glamour Garment Co., Ltd. (Glamour), the sleepwear and loungewear supplier, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Glamour is a world-leading developer and manufacturer of sleepwear and loungewear, providing quality OEM and ODM services to thousands of international brands. Glamour is a vertical supplier with presence across the supply chain including fiber, yarn, weaving, dyeing, design and garment production. With an R&D team of more than 50 people, Glamour develops and produces some 5,000 new products every year to serve over 470 satisfied brands around the world.
Glamour follows a typical OEM/ODM business process of receiving foreign trade orders, organizing order information, style and fabric sampling, sample reviews and tracking the progress of production and material shipments. Until recently, this process was managed manually using spreadsheets. This caused issues with a lack of unified standards, inefficient collaboration, poor management visibility, delayed deliveries and the loss of historical data needed to aid decision-making. Glamour decided to implement Centric Manufacturing PLM to use data more effectively, unify processes and improve management.
Glamour will work with Centric to build a digital management platform across all departments. The PLM project aims to standardize data formats and processes to establish a framework for business growth. The project team will organize scattered R&D data into a structured database; clarify business processes and departmental responsibilities to improve team collaboration; and integrate customer data to identify best practices for the future.
Mr. Jiang Shanfeng, General Manager of Glamour, says, “I believe that with Centric PLM, Glamour can better provide customers with full-process services at their request, covering fabric R&D, style design, raw material procurement, sample manufacturing, customer feedback, mass production, logistics tracking and market feedback, so as to improve their market competitiveness with our enhanced R&D and production capacity.”
“We are delighted to announce that Glamour has decided to implement Centric PLM,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “With the close collaboration of both teams and our practical expertise in PLM for textiles and apparel manufacturers, we are looking forward to launching a project that will enable Glamour to provide customers with a top-quality service.”
