Eco-conscious lifestyle brand digitalizes to ramp up data-based decision making
CAMPBELL, Calif., October 4, 2022 – Centric Software® is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Dudley Stephens.
Headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut, and founded in 2015, Dudley Stephens is a female-founded, family-owned company that produces apparel and accessories for women, children and men. From the outset, the vision was comfortable, stylish products made with eco-friendly fleece and other responsible materials.
The company was using spreadsheets, email and PowerPoint for product development. They needed to track fabrics and materials to ensure that their components are environmentally responsible. Says Lauren Stephens, CEO and co-founder, “Our environmental mission is extremely important to our customers. We listen to their feedback.”
And with growth accelerating, it made sense to put a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution in place to have one central repository for all product data. Stephens says, “With our company and our growth, we got to the point where we absolutely couldn’t keep up with it anymore. When we hit that point, we brought Centric on.”
Dudley Stephens selected Centric PLM to improve efficiency and make informed, data-driven decisions. Stephens says, “There are so many decisions to be made and we like to make decisions quickly.” Kaki McGrath, co-founder and COO concurs, “Quick decision-making is so important. We always talk about how we need to be doers, and not just sit and think, because then nothing gets done.”
Get the details on how a modern PLM solution gives Dudley Stephens the foundation for further growth!
