Centric Software® drives greater value creation for leading textile manufacturer
CAMPBELL, Calif., January 26, 2021 – Shanghai Sunwin Industry Group Co., Ltd. (Sunwin), the Chinese ‘King of Throws and Blankets’, has successfully implemented Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution, and Centric is celebrating with the release of a success story. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods and home décor companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Sunwin was founded in 2002, and provides integrated services including original design, marketing planning and supply chain management of home textile goods for global retailers including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Pottery Barn, Dillard’s, Target and H&M.
Aiming to give designers and R&D personnel the visibility and collaborative tools they need to create more valuable products, Sunwin decided to implement Centric Home PLM in March 2020.
“A designer needs not just creativity, but also the ability to predict and create value, and these skills are based on in-depth insights into the market as well as the mining and analysis of product data,” says Mr. Wang Yaomin, Chairman of Sunwin. “Using Centric PLM, we provide our design and research teams with better value creation tools and take full advantage of their potential.”
“We only cooperate with the most innovative companies,” he adds. “As the world’s most prestigious digital transformation platform provider, Centric Software has rich experience in both the fashion and retail industries.”
With the implementation of Centric PLM, Sunwin has built a real-time knowledge base of the company’s unique intellectual property, assets and culture. Meeting their core objectives of better collaboration, knowledge, decision-making and efficiency, Sunwin has created a collaborative platform for internal teams, customers and suppliers and greatly enhanced the core competitiveness of its products. Centric PLM will also be an important tool to achieve future digital management and branding goals.
“We’re happy that Sunwin is experiencing great results with Centric PLM,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “Sunwin is at the forefront of textile manufacturing in China, and we’re proud to be a part of their vision for the future of the industry.”
