Dsquared2 has revealed that it has rolled out product life cycle management software from Centric Software.

Centric Software announced today (21 February) that Dsquared2 has purchased the entire Centric 8 PLM suite to manage the product development and sourcing process of its women's and men's apparel, footwear, bags and accessories lines.

The company will use Centric 8 to increase overall process efficiency from concept to pre-production and to accelerate the introduction of new collections, said Dsquared2 CEO Gianfranco Maccarrone.

"Centric's PLMsystem will help Dsquared2 obtain greater visibility and control of costs and margins, a critical aspect in the current fluctuating market," said Maccarrone.

"Not only is Centric 8 a complete PLM solution able to manage the product life cycle in an end-to-end manner, it also embeds best practices from the fashion industry as standard functionality - with no need to customise."
