CAMPBELL, Calif., March 31, 2020 – Zhejiang GOMINO Clothing Co., Ltd. (“GOMINO”), the Chinese leather clothing company, has selected Centric Software®‘s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for emerging enterprises, Centric SMB. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods and home décor companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Founded in 1996, GOMINO has grown from a small family workshop to a leader in R&D, design, manufacturing and sales of leather and fur clothing. GOMINO originally concentrated on its ODM business, supplying top Chinese and international brands. In 2012, GOMINO established two independent brands, GOMINO and KOYAN.
GOMINO values their independent design and R&D capabilities as well as proprietary technical processes. The company needed a PLM solution to provide a dynamic repository for technical know-how and standardize product development to better serve brand customers and consumers.
“We develop hundreds of new products every year, but data for patterns, techniques and materials has not been well-preserved,” says Mr. Wang Maliang, general manager of GOMINO. “Without digital data management, it is difficult for us to review products in development and support decision-making for next year’s merchandise planning.”
Impressed by Centric’s industry experience and partnerships with top Chinese clothing brands, GOMINO selected Centric SMB, a cloud-based SaaS PLM solution for emerging enterprises.
GOMINO will use Centric SMB to promote internal collaboration, ensure R&D runs smoothly and systematically manage styles, product development, materials, costing and tech pack outputs. With Centric SMB, GOMINO will establish libraries for patterns, techniques, materials, colors and styles to set the standard for future rapid product development. GOMINO plans to eventually extend the scope of PLM to merchandise planning and supply chain collaboration.
Mr. Wang concludes, “GOMINO’s strategy is to develop from ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’, and from ‘digitalization’ to ‘digital intelligence’. GOMINO is laying a strong foundation for digital research and development with Centric PLM so we can achieve digitally intelligent production in the future.”
“We are very happy that GOMINO has chosen to work with Centric,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “GOMINO has an ambitious business growth strategy that depends on effective digitalization coupled with market-specific innovations and experience. We are honored to partner with them now and into the future.”
