Boost Productivity with a Single Source of Truth

Creating iconic jewelry, watches and accessories is skilful work, requiring high levels of precision and accuracy. Attention to detail, material sourcing and quality control are critical to maintaining brand reputation and keeping consumers happy.

Jewelry brands will often offer ranges that stretch from ready-to-wear and custom jewelry to prestigious precious stone jewelry (joaillerie) to exquisitely crafted high jewelry (haute joaillerie). Finding a PLM and retail planning solution that is flexible enough to handle these different types of products, with all the complexity of varying timelines, costing scenarios and rules, workshop/supplier relationships and rare material sourcing is a real challenge.

Built on deep fashion industry expertise with the versatility to handle hard goods and a wide variety of materials, components and packaging, Centric PLM and Centric Retail Planning’s in-depth product description, retail and wholesale assortment planning, collection planning, financial forecasting, analytics, inventory optimization and costing capabilities drive efficient product development and launches.
