Centric VIP is fully connected with Centric PLM and is a platform dedicated to mood, material, style, allocation, merchandising, line and sales boards.
This innovative platform drives digital transformation and decision-making, significantly reducing time to market and generating major productivity gains for creative and technical teams as well as executives.
Designers can pull in sketches, images, colors, materials and more from previous collections and desktop files as well as directly from a web browser, such as an image search or a trend service site. They can create new information on the fly and build ideas for products and collections. As ideas mature, product development and production teams add their input resulting in more creative, higher quality and higher margin products.
Information syncs seamlessly giving teams a global view of materials, colors and styles, and allowing them to make decisions and see changes live.
Teams can be located in the same room or around the world and, as Centric VIP is system-agnostic, information can be drawn from Centric 8 PLM or other business systems such as ERP, PIM, DAM, etc.

These analog ways of working are extremely time-consuming to compile and prone to error, with output impossible to communicate and execute quickly and accurately. Creativity is often hampered due to the lack of easy to understand, clear information and time lost searching for details.
In this new digital space, designers and other teams can ideate without limits, evolve concepts to maturity and execute them in collaboration with one another to boost innovation and quality while drastically cutting time to market.
