Trespass Chooses Centric Planning to Improve Allocation and Forecasting

Advanced analytics and AI will enable leading outdoor brand to reduce reporting time by up to 20% and drive better inventory allocation in 300+ stores

CAMPBELL, Calif., July 2, 2024Centric Software® is pleased to announce that outdoor brand and retailer Trespass has chosen to implement Centric Planning™. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source, price and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Jacobs & Turner Ltd, was established in 1938 as a manufacturer of workwear and outerwear. Trespass, is their award-winning privately-owned brand, created in 1984, focused on performance, outdoor sports and leisurewear from our headquarters in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.

Their mission is to become the FIRST CHOICE GLOBALLY when purchasing PERFORMANCE CLOTHING and ACCESSORIES.

Trespass is one of the UK’s most successful outdoor clothing retailers and, after many years of increased growth, has been searching out “best in breed” systems to future-proof the business.

“Like many others in our industry, we arrived at a point where the manual execution of daily activities was reaching a critical threshold. Our merchandise teams needed system support to free up time and be able to operate and strategize more efficiently,” explains Afzal Khushi, Director at Trespass. “After extensive market research and discovery sessions, Centric Software was our preferred choice due to their ability to understand our nuances and their speedy alignment with our business practices. They were also our preferred partner as their “out of the box” solution means we do not have to develop or redesign solutions for the business. Although we are at the start of our journey with Centric Planning, we are already seeing benefits that will confidently take us into the next phase of our successful journey.”

“We’re delighted to welcome Trespass on board as our latest Centric Planning customer partner,” says Fabrice Canonge, President of Centric Software. “Trespass is confidently jumping into AI-driven planning, merchandise and allocation to drive more profitable assortments, and we’re honored to work with them to enable their retail planning digital transformation.”

At Trespass, we have always been passionate about creating a brand where adventure comes first. We believe no matter where you reside in the world or what age you are, you should always be able to embrace the great outdoors. Established in 1938 under the name Jacobs & Turner Ltd situated in the heart of Glasgow Scotland. In the beginning, we had just 12 machinists working profusely in a 1200 sqft warehouse where we provided uniforms and other items of clothing to large organisations including the local police. As our success grew, we started to manufacture anoraks and waterproof jackets that shaped the future of our business.

With in-house designers and product experts, our team are highly talented creative individuals who explore possibilities and constantly push the boundaries of innovation. We have also developed our own technology and technical materials including Tres-Tex, Tres-Shield and Tres-Tex 3 layer fabric. Today, Trespass is one of the UK’s most successful outdoor clothing retailers providing a wide range of products from walking boots to outdoor furniture, selling internationally and exporting to over 60 countries.
