Glory Apparel, a knitwear company, selected Centric SMB, Centric Software®’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for emerging businesses. Software centric provides the most innovative business solutions to plan, design, develop, source and sell products such as clothing, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home decor, personal care, food and beverage and luxury goods in order to achieve the strategic and operational goals of digital transformation.
Founded in 1980 and based in New York City, Glory Apparel produces knits and distributes them through an omnichannel retail network. The company has offices around the world, including New York, Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, with factories in mainland China. They produce both private label and branded products, producing five million pieces of clothing per year.
Claire Deng, accountant / financial analyst and PLM expert at Glory Apparel, describes how the company has used emails, spreadsheets, PDFs, and other documents for product development. “We spend too much time on internal communication and we want to make our work more efficient. So we wanted a system where we can organize all our documents and communicate with the whole team in a very efficient way.
Glory Apparel considered several PLM systems, but in the end, after a convincing demonstration, chose Centric SMB because of its usability and functionality. Deng says, “Centric meets all of our needs. We are convinced that Centric can help us improve our efficiency, our collaboration across all our sites and our communication.
Centric PLM touches many functional areas of the business: production operations, product development, and accounting. It offers transparency to those who need it. They are looking to gain visibility on their technology packs. Regarding the area of accounting, Deng says, “I can get an overview of the whole process. It helps me with our accounts payable and receivable process. I can track shipments so I know when to start processing payments. “
Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software, said, “Glory Apparel’s longevity in the business is a testament to their business acumen. We’re excited to partner with this global company to lay the groundwork for digital transformation. Centric PLM enables them to achieve their goals of keeping prices competitive and delivering high quality products on time.
