CAMPBELL, Calif., 25 April, 2019 – Centric Software is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Capa de Ozono.
Capa de Ozono was founded in 1992 and is headquartered in León, Guanajuato, the capital of the Mexican footwear industry. Capa de Ozono designs, manufactures and sells footwear, mainly for the teenage and young adult market, and is one of Mexico’s largest fashion footwear retailers. Capa de Ozono sells through a network of 235 branded stores in 50 cities and has over 300 wholesale clients as well as a popular online channel. The company has grown significantly in recent years.
“We focus on being a fast fashion company, which means we have to get on board with new developments and designs that are appropriate for the market in the fastest possible way,” explains Stefan Hromatka, CEO of Grupo Acritus, Capa de Ozono’s parent company. “The biggest challenge we have, is to identify new trends on time and drop the trends that no longer work.”
Today, with Centric PLM in place, Capa de Ozono has improved product development time by 20%, been able to launch new products on schedule 90% of the time and has doubled its number of collections, without needing to increase design and development staff.
Why did Capa de Ozono decide to make the leap with Centric PLM and how has it changed the way people work every day at the company?
