Jakarta.,26 July, 2023 – Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, proudly announces that Busana Apparel Group has successfully implemented Centric PLM™. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source, price and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Indonesia-based Busana is one of the largest garment manufacturers and exporters in the industry with a total capacity to produce and export 50 million pieces of clothing per year. Busana’s goal is to expand its business to different geographic locations by working with other companies and using strategic partnerships to help create a supply chain ecosystem. With Centric PLM, Busana now has one central location for all its information, removing dependency on emails to share product development information and allowing for process standardization.
“By implementing Centric PLM, we are able to consolidate our product development information and standardize our processes,” says Manish Virmani, CMO of Busana. “The ability to capture data from the source has significantly reduced the time and effort required for repetitive data entry, and the system has helped us keep track of the entire product development at any point in time.
Throughout the project, Busana received exceptional customer support from the Centric implementation team. Vijay Kumar, Senior Manager at Busana, shared, “Centric has been responsive and attentive to our needs and concerns, providing timely solutions. This is why we were able to navigate the project smoothly and within budget. It’s encouraging to see Centric’s customer-centric approach in both their words and actions.”
With Centric PLM, Busana has saved eight hours per style in customer communication, resulting in a 15% reduction in sample production lead time. The implementation of Centric PLM has enabled Busana to address key pain points in its product development process, improve collaboration and support its sustainability initiatives.
Aligning with sustainability goals, Busana is looking to further collaborate with Centric on improving raw material traceability, supply chain optimization and end-of-life sustainability of products in the future.
“We are proud to have Busana as one of our customers. As this partnership shows, a lot can be achieved with the right solution, teamwork and collaboration,” says Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software.
