Powerhouse beauty retailer puts customers’ well-being first through compliance and transparency
CAMPBELL, Calif., January 3, 2023 – Centric Software® is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, MECCA.
Founded 25 years ago, MECCA has redefined the Australian and New Zealand beauty landscape. With more than 100 stores across Australia and New Zealand, as well as online stores in both countries and T-Mall global, MECCA offers an exclusive edit of the best in beauty from more than 200 brands, including signature lines MECCA Cosmetica, MECCA MAX and kit.
To meet Australia’s strict ingredients legislation, MECCA decided to implement Centric PLM® to automate existing processes involving ingredient compliance. It was highly important that the teams had easy access to all the information about products in one place including ingredients, artwork files and claim documentation.
David Cumberland, GM of Risk and Compliance at MECCA shares, “We were looking for a back-end solution that provided a secure environment for data. We can’t approve products with incomplete data on ingredients or missing documentation – every product needs to be compliant.”
“We’re approving new products faster than ever before because we’re completing our reviews in one place, Centric PLM,” Cumberland confirms.
The PLM implementation proved to be a success when the MECCA teams no longer need to manually look up product information and compliance documents as everything they need is stored in one place available at all times, making it quicker to approve new products and streamline their entire compliance journey.
Learn more in detail about how MECCA improved processes with brand partners, sped up the compliance process and streamlined new product introductions.
Since opening its doors in Melbourne in 1997, MECCA has completely redefined the Australian beauty landscape, championing retail innovation and delivering the ultimate beauty experience to customers. Founded by Jo Horgan, the powerhouse retailer presents the best in global beauty across over 100 Australian and New Zealand stores, six unique beauty concepts: Mecca Cosmetica, Mecca Maxima, MECCA, mecca.com.au and meccabeauty.co.nz, and in China on mecca.tmall.hk.
