CAMPBELL, Calif., November 30, 2023Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, is pleased to announce that Polish fashion group LPP SA (LPP) has selected Centric PlanningTM. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source, price and sell products such as apparel, fashion, home, footwear, sporting goods, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage, and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Catering to a number of different demographics, LPP designs, manufactures and distributes its collections across 39 countries over 3 continents through its ecommerce channels and vast distribution network of over 2,000 stores.

Operating for over 30 years, with noticeable growth since 2019, LPP continues to drive development forward with an intensive expansion throughout Europe. During that time LPP has noted over 60% dynamic growth and changed its business model towards omnichannel solutions in addition to significantly changing their development strategy, turning it towards the southern, central and western parts of the continent. Recognizing the need to further streamline their omnichannel planning in order to achieve their expansion strategy and drive future growth LPP, through their IT subsidiary Silky Coders, selected market-leading retail planning solution; Centric Planning.

“We were looking for a planning solution that could handle omnichannel effectively, with modern cloud-based technology and highly flexible configurability,” says Andrzej Kryżewski – Data Science Director of Silky Coders. “We have decided to pursue a complete omnichannel strategy, investing in both bricks and mortar and e-commerce stores. Centric Planning is a perfect fit for our fast-growing omnichannel strategy. It is very intuitive to use and will help us to organize our data in a way that supports our dynamic growth.”

With Centric Planning in place, LPP expects to see substantial time savings.

“Centric Planning will enable us to have all of our data in one place, minimize errors and unify planning processes across our five brands,” says Kryżewski. “Our merchandisers will be able to spend time making strategic decisions rather than collecting data.”

“We are delighted to collaborate with LPP as they build a digital foundation for rapid omnichannel expansion,” says Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software. “We look forward to working with the LPP team and Silky Coders as they implement Centric Planning to develop streamlined and efficient planning processes that will drive their growth strategy.”
