Women's wear retailer Cache Cache China has become the first customer for Centric Software in China, where it is implementing product lifecycle management (PLM) to support its growth plans.

The Centric 8 PLM software for retail, apparel, footwear, luxury and consumer goods will be used for all of the company's product lines.

Cache Cache China, which sells women's ready-to-wear apparel, footwear and accessories from more than 900 stores, is part of French-based Group Beaumanoir.

Expected benefits include enhanced collaboration throughout product development teams, and improved visibility for better go/no-go product decision-making, according to Sandrine Woirnesson, vice president of finance, IT and corporate governance at Cache Cache China.

The tool should also accelerate efficiency and speed to market for the Cache Cache China collections.
