With Centric PLM as a foundation, lingerie and swim businesses can speed time to market, develop more complex products in a greater range of sizes with more efficiency, re-use popular basic designs from previous seasons easily, build collaboration with suppliers and eliminate time-consuming paper-based processes.
Lingerie and swim brands face big challenges in today’s world!
Agile millennial players are entering the market, retailers are evolving their intimates and swim assortments and as a result, product development cycles from concept to retail are getting shorter and more styles at more price points are being offered. Companies develop increasing numbers of products, driven by the need for inclusivity of different body shapes and sizes as well as geographic expansion, which brings challenges. Developing in region-specific sizes using localized languages, packaging, prices and currencies adds even more complexity to an otherwise already intricate process.
Making lingerie and swimwear require specialized skills, requiring extreme precision in specifications, measurements and the placing of laces and fabrics, making it particularly tricky to develop trend-right product assortments quickly while preserving product quality. How can lingerie and swim brands and retailers keep up?
