Efficiency, Creativity and Speed for Fashion Footwear

Footwear companies need to maintain growth targets and accurately read the consumer while handling cost and supply chain ambiguity, managing large volumes of data and creating new styles and innovations. Longer lead times mean that line planning, merchandising and product development have to be completed far earlier than for soft goods.

Centric PLM and Centric Retail Planning deliver greater efficiency, creativity and speed for footwear brands, retailers and manufacturers. Our solutions empower robust planning and product development to optimize the omnichannel experience, flexibly allocate inventory to improve sell-through and reduce time to market while maintaining quality and compatibility with industry product structure standards - even in high volume production.

Rapidly issue supplier RFPs en masse and collaborate with suppliers on costs, schedules, samples, quality testing and documentation.
