Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Centric Software as the Global Customer Value Leader in the Retail, Apparel, and Fashion Market

Campbell, Calif., Dec. 8, 2016 – Frost & Sullivan has awarded its 2016 Customer Value Leadership Award in PLM for Retail, Apparel and Fashion to Centric Software. Centric Software is the leading Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for fashion, retail, luxury, outdoor, and consumer goods companies.

Frost & Sullivan focuses on helping its clients achieve transformational growth and has a global team of analysts and consultants continuously researching a wide range of markets across multiple sectors and geographies. As part of this ongoing research, the consulting firm identifies companies that consistently deepen customer relationships by offering superior products and services that deliver a clear, demonstrable ROI.

“Although there are several competitors in the market offering PLM solutions, Centric is the preferred solution primarily due its simple design that permits collaboration across every function/division in the value chain. As a result, customers gain better visibility of their products, can more swiftly plan new product launches, and can easily coordinate activities among various departments across different locations,” explains David Frigstad, Chairman at Frost & Sullivan.

“The simple operation and faster time-to-market, which offers a higher return on investment, has enabled Centric Software to distinguish itself from other big automation companies. Centric continues to be a popular choice for many fashion brands,” he continues.

“I am delighted with the announcement that Centric has been named the Customer Value Leader in PLM for Retail, Apparel, and Fashion,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric. “Frost & Sullivan acknowledges the efforts and successes of the entire Centric team in our pursuit to innovate products that create value for our customers and drive business growth through digital transformation.”
