Tape à l’Œil relied on Excel and email to share product information between teams in Asia and France, and problems often arose with errors and multiple versions of the same data. The company needed a new, collaborative tool to support their ambitions to further increase their style count and improve speed to market.
Tape à l’Œil’s decision to select Centric Software as their PLM supplier was driven by Centric’s fashion industry expertise, as well the intuitive, iterative approach to implementation allowed by its Agile Deployment℠ methodology. Centric PLM’s flexibility made it possible to configure it to perfectly match all of the company’s processes and ways of working.
Tape à l’Œil now manages around 3,500 styles in PLM and has significantly improved the structure of its product data and the way the company communicates technical specifications to suppliers. With the support of Centric’s technical consultants and strong team spirit across Tape à l’Œil, Centric PLM has dramatically reduced human error and brought harmony to the collaborative process.Read the full story
