When Tristate Holdings acquired Italian shirt brand C.P. Company, they decided to put a new infrastructure in place. To better fit with the group’s other brands and to expand beyond its local market, C.P. needed to undergo a rapid business transformation with a strong technological foundation.
Tristate looked for a PLM solution to help organize collections, collaborate from a single source of information, set prices and improve the organizational structure at C.P. Company. Centric PLM was chosen for its fast implementation and user-friendly, configurable system that came pre-packaged with well-established processes and best practices that would have the brand up and running quickly.
Implementation of Centric PLM was completed in just 4 months, with all collections at C.P. Company now managed on the system. Working with Centric PLM has enabled C.P. to improve collaboration with vendors, exert greater control over collections, better visualize and analyze product performance, and establish a foundation for earlier, more accurate costing that has measurably improved product profitability.Read the full story
