Leading supplier of ceramics and glassware partners with Centric Software® to streamline product development and power growth
CAMPBELL, Calif., April 5, 2022 – Pure Table Top, the UK-based specialist supplier of ceramics and glass, has selected 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.
Founded at Tanith Sellicks kitchen table in 2014, Pure Table Top’s mission is simple; to lead the way in design and innovation across the ceramic, glass and home accessories market. They work closely with retailers and brands in the UK South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Canada and source from factories around the world. They supply only the highest quality products for retail and online and deliver over three million items across the globe every year.
Pure Table Top doubled in size over the past two years and they needed a digital transformation solution to manage information, streamline product development and support category expansion. “As we’ve grown, we’ve had more difficulty with data and processes,” says Geoff Mann, Head of Operations at Pure Table Top. “We have been focusing on improving our systems and PLM enables us to streamline our design and product development.”
Pure Table Top discovered Centric PLM in their pursuit to obtain B Corporation(™) Certification. Companies in the B Corp(™) community meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. “Our sustainability officer originally came across PLM whilst researching tools to track our carbon footprint and record factories green credentials,” shares Mann. “However, we quickly realized Centric PLM could bring together our sourcing, design and product development in one place.”
Pure Table Top had a smooth and rapid implementation, going live in January of this year. “The Centric team was supportive, they facilitated the rollout really well and gave us advice on how Centric PLM could work for us,” shares Mann.
Pure’s product development and account management teams have started to adopt Centric PLM and are already realizing benefits. “Before Centric PLM our product information was scattered in emails, spreadsheets and different systems and a lot of time was wasted with duplication of work and manual data entry,” says Mann. “We can already see how Centric PLM will be able to help us drive efficiencies in communication and collaboration with one source of the truth.”
“Centric PLM will help us with range plans and design presentations” adds Mann. “The information stored in PLM will allow our teams to collaborate and share ideas in ways we have never been able to before.”
The company has coined 2022 the Year of Information for Pure Table Top, with Centric playing a major role. Looking to the future, Pure can see greater opportunities for growth. “We can see further potential for PLM to benefit our business,” says Mann. They expect to expand Centric PLM to factories and use it to streamline the packaging process, reduce the number of samples produced and decrease carrier costs.
“We are thrilled that Pure Table Top has chosen Centric Software as a partner in their digital transformation journey,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “We look forward to working with them in their pursuit to becoming a more sustainable company leading the way in home accessory design and innovation.”
