Triumph is looking to shorten lead times and reduce costs

Lingerie brand Triumph International has chosen to implement Centric Software's product lifecycle management (PLM) platform to improve efficiency, transparency and cost-effectiveness. 

Triumph has a presence in 120 countries, serving 40,000 wholesale customers and sells its products in 2,000 Triumph stores as well as via several own online shops. 

It will deploy Centric 8 in the brand, design, development and sourcing processes of its Sloggi brand first, and then add its namesake brand in a second phase. The final phase will include Triumph's Japan business. 

Having previously used spreadsheets, the company says the platform will help it to shorten lead times, reduce costs, become more efficient and streamline operations.  

"With Centric on board, we are looking forward to having an easy to use, harmonised tool that will allow us to share processes and information efficiently and transparently," says Rainer Zeusche, head of master data governance at Triumph International. 

He adds: "There is a lot of complexity in our design-to-market processes and we are always looking for ways to make things simpler."

Triumph generated revenues of EUR1.437bn in 2014.
