Centric Software Introduces Connector to Link WebPDM, Centric 8 PLM Suite

Apparel companies that use Gerber Technology WebPDM product data management (PDM) software now can integrate directly with the Centric 8 product lifecycle management (PLM) and sourcing suite, Centric reports.

The integration allows data currently siloed within WebPDM to be used by others in the enterprise, including merchandising, product management and sourcing teams. The connector is compatible with both thick-client and web interfaces of WebPDM, and is backward compatible to WebPDM Version 4.1 and all V5 releases.

The new connector allows design teams to work with familiar design tools, while the larger enterprise can manage the entire product process more consistently and effectively.

Centric partnered with E-Spec Inc. to develop the connector.

In related news, the just released upgrade to its Centric 8 suites introduces Product Profitability Planning and Enterprise Search modules, major updates to the Product Specification module, and a Centric Connector for Adobe Creative Suite.

The profitability planning module calculates complete product cost and gross margin information - including operating expenses, channel costs, royalties, shipping costs and GMROI - early in the product development process, allowing companies to gain insight into the potential financial success of new products at a very early stage of development.

Online sales and marketing vehicles are one of the most important channels fashion has for engaging with customers, but optimizing the value of your electronic interactions can be a complex undertaking.

If you cannot create an online platform that delivers across all fronts, you’re missing critical opportunities to engage with customers, increase sales, and extend your market reach across global time zones. Read this White Paper – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director, where he will share insights into the eCommerce market and just how Fashion companies can deliver on a 24/7 sales economy.
