Iconic footwear retailer selects Centric PLM to build innovative capacity and reduce costs
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) - Centric Software®, leading provider of innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods and home décor companies, is excited to announce its partnership with Payless, the footwear retailer, as the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to achieving strategic and operational digital transformation goals for the brand’s relaunch in to the US market.
Newly headquartered in Miami, FL, Payless has an extensive history of providing value to customers around the world. In addition to its budding e-commerce business, Payless spans 30 countries with over 700 stores in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Caribbean, serving millions of customers through its extensive global network of brick-and-mortar and retail footprint.
Under new management and executive leadership, Payless has a heightened focus on innovation and reinvigorated commitment to providing unparalleled value now across a range of apparel, accessories, and footwear, making it a brand priority to invest in a PLM solution for their relaunch into the US market in 2020 and beyond.
“Everything we do begins and ends with our customer in mind,” said Matt Lafone, Chief Operating Officer at Payless Worldwide. “To provide the consumer with the stylish, trend-forward products at the value they need, now more than ever, we as a brand have a responsibility to continue to innovate, and strengthen our sourcing and supply chain logistics capabilities as much as possible. With our relaunch into the US market, we had the opportunity to analyze our business and concentrate on ways to improve operational efficiency. Investing in Centric PLM is one of them.”
Centric PLM will allow Payless product developers, designers and managers to consolidate communication and have more time to deliver great products – one source of the truth for working with factories and vendors. PLM also enable brands like Payless to cut expenses, assist designers with technical packages, stay on track with our calendar and communicate more transparently.
