With the introduction of Centric Software’s Centric Manufacturing PLM, VT Garment has streamlined communication across departments and reduced time spent on data entry and administration.

“With Centric PLM, we’ve reduced lead time by 7% by saving time that used to be spent organising data,” says Mingkwan Lotharukpong, product development division manager at VT Garment. 

The firm’s shortened development lead times mean it has been able to improve time to market by 20%. In addition, it has also improved sample one time through rate by 80%.

“Overall, we have increased productivity by 30% because we freed up resources for action and gained visibility into timelines and activities across the whole organisation,” Lotharukpong adds.
