Fashion group implements Centric Software solution to build resilience, improve efficiency and empower better decision-making
CAMPBELL, Calif., March 14, 2023 – Yinger Fashion Group (Yinger), a major Chinese fashion leader, has successfully implemented 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.
Yinger, founded in 1996, has developed a diversified presence across multiple industries by integrating investment, R&D, creativity, marketing and services. With six successful brands, Yinger now operates 15 regional sales branches and has a significant customer base, serving millions through its over 1,500 stores across China.
The Chinese fashion industry has undergone significant challenges in recent years, but Yinger has responded by confidently pushing a digital transformation strategy with Centric Fashion PLM at its center. Yinger has implemented Centric PLM®️ at the Yiner and Song of Song brands, aiming to connect supply chains to sales and unify design and R&D with a single platform for collaboration and access to up-to-date product-related information.
“Centric PLM has brought us many improvements in our daily work,” says Mrs Wenhan Chen, Song of Song’s brand design department. “We no longer have to worry about information being lost as employees come and go. Processes such as R&D proofing and review have now been brought online. Thanks to the visualized management framework, we can supervise and manage in real time with clarity, saving us a huge amount of management time.”
Mrs Xinyu Liu, a key user in the Yiner design department, says, “With Centric PLM, we can get an immediate picture of the progress of product development over three seasons. We can analyze the proportions of colors and types of clothes for the whole season in real time. All of this helps us better grasp the planning and more accurately carry it out.”
Since going live, Yinger has achieved initial success in optimizing R&D, improving existing working methods and building information-based processes. Phase two of the project is set to begin shortly, and Yinger intends to expand use of Centric PLM across the group.
“We are delighted that Yinger Group is already experiencing positive results from implementing Centric PLM,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “As Yinger enters the second phase of implementation, we look forward to working together closely to achieve Yinger’s goals and improve their competitive offering in the Chinese fashion marketplace.”
