Centric PLM will allow us to focus the efforts, energy and skills of our design teams on collections rather than file management and data retrieval.
CAMPBELL, Calif. (PRWEB) September 15, 2020
Sézane, the Parisian fashion brand, has selected Centric Software®’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. 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.
Created in 2013 by Morgane Sézalory, Sézane is the first digitally native, vertical, French fashion brand. Sézane quickly conquered the most cutting-edge styles. Innovative and driven by eco-conscious values, Sézane offers original, timeless clothing, shoes and leather goods of excellent quality, designed to last but at affordable prices. Sézane distributes its products via its website and around ten apartment-boutiques, located in France, London and New York, and offers customer service worthy of the biggest luxury brands. The company, which today brings together almost 200 employees and maintains two-thirds of its production in Europe, offers four annual collections supplemented by the regular launch of capsule pieces.
Committed to sustainability, the brand has met numerous ecological standards and uses 85% eco-friendly and sustainable materials.
Sézane wanted to take a new step in their approach to quality and continuous improvement. However, the design teams for ready-to-wear, footwear, bags and accessories used different legacy tools for managing the product lifecycle and worked in different ways.
As the number of employees grew, agility began to take precedence over process and organizational concerns. Sézane's objective is now to unify these heterogeneous and complex processes and to promote synergies between the different teams through a centralized product data repository that is synchronized with existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Information Management (PIM) solutions.
“Centric PLM will allow us to focus the efforts, energy and skills of our design teams on collections rather than file management and data retrieval,” says the Sézane team.
Sézane’s teams examined three potential solutions. In the end, Centric Fashion PLM proved to be the most complete solution that was best adapted to the needs of the company. Centric’s customer references in the fashion sector also stood in its favor.
“We are delighted that Sézane has elected to partner with Centric,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “Synonymous with elegance and quality, this French fashion brand has spearheaded an innovative distribution model. We are proud to participate in this adventure by offering Sézane a robust solution capable of giving total control of products from design to distribution. With Centric PLM, Sézane marks a new stage in their quest for excellence and uniqueness.”
