In today’s leather goods market, speed is essential, and it was imperative for Lancaster to accelerate their design, creation and development process. Lancaster searched for a technological solution that would help create products more quickly, adapt the overall product offering for different markets and eliminate delays in product development.
Lancaster chose Centric PLM on the basis of its usability and flexibility, as well as the fashion and luxury expertise of the Centric team. Centric Software’s suite of mobile apps, which synchronize product data with PLM and empower collaboration across different departments and devices, was also a significant factor in Lancaster’s decision to implement the solution.
Lancaster has now been able to expand its global footprint and reduce the time it takes to bring new products to market.
