Market-leading Centric PLM™ adopted by 3 Indian fashion & jewelry brands
CAMPBELL, Calif., March 23, 2022 – Centric Software® , the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, is celebrating its latest partnerships with three successful companies in India. 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.
Retailer Trent Limited, apparel brand Ethnicity and jewelry manufacturer Derewala have become the first three companies in India to harness Centric PLM, the intuitive, configurable, easy to use, mobile, cloud-based PLM software. All three companies cited spreadsheet chaos, a widespread challenge across the industry, as a main driver for adopting PLM. Searching through numerous spreadsheets, files in multiple emails and out-of-date versions will be a thing of the past. With Centric PLM, all product development information can be found in a single, digital hub, accessible to all departments when they need it.
Kripya, Centric’s trusted partner for over a decade is leading the implementation of Centric PLM for Trent Limited, Ethnicity and Derewala. Kripya has already successfully rolled out Centric PLM for multiple global brands, retailers and manufacturers of different sizes and levels of complexity such as Li & Fung, ASICS, Brandix, Hirdaramani, MAS Holdings, VT Garment and SHOEfabrik. Since inception, Centric PLM projects have a 100% go-live and 97% referenceability rates, emphasizing the customer satisfaction of its 500+ customers.
Venkatesh Narasimhan, Chief Operating Officer at Kripya Solutions Pvt Ltd, comments, “Kripya has amassed considerable best practices in working with innovative, market-leading brands, retailers and manufacturers from around the globe.” He continues, “By combining the best of Silicon Valley innovation and local knowledge, we will streamline activities for Trent Limited, Ethnicity and Derewala.

Ravi Rangan, Chief Technical Officer and VP Client Services at Centric Software says, “It is fantastic to progress Centric’s relationship with Kripya, a premier PLM Consulting firm and Centric’s closest partner, towards our deployments in India. With over a decade of Centric deployment partnership, Kripya is tightly integrated into Centric’s processes and governance.
