Whether we move toward an OEM or ODM business model, Centric PLM can flexibly and effectively accommodate our needs and greatly shorten implementation time.
CAMPBELL, Calif. (PRWEB) August 18, 2020
Welfull Group Co., Ltd., a major importer and exporter in China, has successfully implemented 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.
Founded in 1993, Welfull is one of China’s leading import and export trading companies for textile and apparel products. Welfull has established its name in the international arena and amassed many customers and supplier resources from around the world.
Industry veteran Welfull encountered many market challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Xu Zhenhao, CIO of the Welfull Group, lists five pain points common to international textile and apparel trade enterprises: growing labor costs, a relatively low level of information sharing, thin profit margins, a lack of standardization and the small scale of upstream suppliers.
Welfull has created a blueprint for digital transformation to address these issues. Centric PLM is at the core of their strategy, as it will close the loop of data flows to facilitate resource sharing and more efficient coordination throughout the supply chain.
“Centric and Welfull are closely aligned in their global vision,” says Mr. Xu. “Centric has impressed us with their second-to-none industry commitment and professional consulting services. Whether we move toward an OEM or ODM business model, Centric PLM can flexibly and effectively accommodate our needs and greatly shorten implementation time.”
Centric PLM was implemented at Welfull in just nine weeks, and will digitalize the entire business process, from inquiry to sample making to delivery. Eliminating information islands will promote efficient teamwork and reduce communication costs. Establishing a digital process and the accumulation of digital assets will improve the efficiency of reordering and style selection, giving Welfull a competitive edge.
“We are happy to announce that Welfull has successfully implemented Centric PLM in a very short time,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “We’re looking forward to working with Welfull to realize the potential of their digital strategy and ensure resilience to future shocks.”
