Sansan Speeds Up Product Costing Process by 50% with Centric PLM

Indonesian garment manufacturer and exporter successfully goes live with Centric PLM in just three months

CAMPBELL, Calif., February 22, 2024Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, proudly announces that Sansan has successfully implemented Centric PLM™. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source, buy, make, price, allocate, sell and replenish products such as fashion, outdoor, luxury, multi-category retail, grocery, food & beverage, cosmetics & personal care and consumer electronics to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.  

Established in 1987, Sansan is one of Indonesia’s leading textile and garment exporters catering to major fashion brands globally. Aiming to boost its revenue by 20% by improving operational efficiency and digitalizing its costing processes, Sansan emphasizes the importance of collaboration and coordination among teams, who have traditionally relied on printed cost sheets and manual documents. 

“We receive many requests for quotation, specifically for pricing, so the focus is on how we can respond faster to our customers. With many staff involved in determining the cost of a product, especially for marker and fabric consumption, we needed Centric PLM to enable greater visibility into Bill of Materials (BOM) data and improve our entire costing process,” says Hermawan Solihin, Systems Officer at Sansan.  

The implementation was swift, taking a mere three months to go live. Sansan’s flexibility and eagerness to adopt Centric PLM were key to this quick and successful implementation. Solihin shares, “We remained flexible and aligned our business processes based on Centric’s best practices, which sped up the implementation and went live after three months.”    

Andi Syarif, Costing Controller at Sansan highlighted how Centric PLM enabled the teams to gain better visibility into BOM data and accelerated the costing process by at least 50%. “There’s better visibility into BOM data and costing from other teams, which allows us to make necessary adjustments quickly. In the past, responding to buyers’ requests could take two to three days, but with the adoption of Centric PLM, we can now complete the task within one day,” Syarif says.  

Sansan believes that the quicker response time is significant for remaining competitive in the market and getting more orders. “We can offer buyers the best price with shorter wait times, negotiate based on their needs and ultimately close the orders,” Solihin states.   

Fabrice Canonge, President of Centric Software says, “We are delighted to have Sansan, one of Indonesia’s trusted exporters, as our customer and are thrilled with the ROI of their Centric PLM implementation. We look forward to continued partnership and empowering them to achieve their business goals.”
