Bangladeshi leading apparel and fashion business Epic Group has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software offers the most innovative enterprise solutions.
PLM, which stands for Product Lifecycle Management, is the strategic process of managing a product’s lifecycle from ideation, development to sales and even end of life. PLM drives an eco-friendly and ethical business model, streamlining production, reducing errors and empowering effective team collaboration, ultimately saving time and money; a strategy that’s vital for all consumer goods companies around the world.
For over 50 years, Epic Group has been a key player in the apparel industry as a major textile trading house, with caring about their employees’ health and wellbeing. It has state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Bangladesh, Vietnam and Ethiopia.
Epic Group dedicated itself to seek out the main standards in everything they do, from world-class RMG manufacturing and design services to innovative machinery that enables them to reach ambitious sustainability targets.
A combination of speed, efficiency, technology, design and innovation is essential for the group to meet ever-changing market trends and consumer demands.
Ranjan Mahtani, Executive Chairman at Epic Group explains how there was a lack of efficiency within some areas of the business, “Today, product development activities are mostly done through email exchanges and excel sheets. Tech packs are received under multiple different formats. We see work duplication and weak traceability in the current model.”
To support the integration of product-related data, processes and business systems, Epic Group selected Centric PLM based on its cloud-based model, strong customer references and experience with OEM models.
Mahtani added, “Centric PLM provides a single source of truth for product information and connects the various teams who work on the product, be it designers, technicians, sample room associates, sourcing and merchandising staff. Centric PLM’s built-in 3D connect toolbar seamlessly integrates with our current 3D capabilities too.”
“The digital fabric library and proper storage of data will allow us to re-use product information, thus saving a lot of time. We will increase productivity, become more agile and gain a faster turnaround for products. It will help us to create more accurate performance indicators, leading to a virtuous cycle of improvement,” Mahtani concluded.
“We are delighted to be an important part of Epic Group’s digital transformation journey,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software.
“We are excited to work closely with such an ambitious and innovative organization, empowering them to meet the demands of their customers.”
