Leading Sri Lankan garment exporter Brandix has invested in a PLM system it says will improve collaboration and data control across the company.

The firm, which is a preferred supplier to some of the leading retail brands in the US and Europe, has selected Centric Software's SMB Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to help manage data flows and communication.

Ranked Sri Lanka's Most Valuable Export Brand in 2015, 2016 and 2017 by Brand Finance, Brandix has a presence in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Haiti and the UK with over 48,000 employees in total. The company has also been awarded 'Sri Lankan Exporter of the Year' consecutively for five years.

Surendra Karunakaran, chief information officer at Brandix, adds: "Centric Software is 100% apparel-focused, with an impressive list of over 240 customers in the industry and dedicated research and development in fashion and apparel. This expertise helps Centric align with our business processes. Centric PLM being a highly configurable out-of-the-box solution, with an intuitive user interface and easy navigation, and its ability to develop mobile apps for PLM, as well as provide innovative updates were influential factors in our decision."
