Driven by feedback from customer innovation partners in fashion, retail,
outdoor and consumer goods, Centric 8 v6.6 is a market-driven release
that responds to the increasing complexity of creating an increasing
number of products destined for multiple channels and diverse regions
while also keeping time to market fast and product costs low.

New innovations include automated rules to govern the use of colors
across different collections, mass creating product Stock Keeping Units
(SKUs) to avoid tedious clicks and streamlining Point of Measure (POM)
management. This release also continues Centric’s journey into 3D with a
powerful new viewer for virtual prototypes and samples.

”We were thrilled to partner with Centric on the new Color Rules
innovation in Centric PLM as it enables designers and product developers
to easily apply color rules to materials, threads and trims all at once
harmonizing product designs, assuring adherence to brand guidelines and
reducing the risk of a design snafu,” attests a long-time Centric
customer. “We are a luxury brand specializing in leather goods and the
choice of colors for each component of each product is as critical as

The ability to mass create product SKUs was similarly driven by Centric
customers. “This new release enables users to easily create many SKUs at
one time,” explains Ron Watson, VP Product at Centric Software.
“Automatically generating SKUs saves our users time and increases
information accuracy while also saving hundreds of clicks.” Centric v6.6
also transforms the creation of POMs codes and size charts saving time
and speeding product iterations destined for multiple markets.

The 3D Viewer in version 6.6 has exciting new features that give users
even more control over the 3D product sample workflow, further boosting
efficiency and speeding time to market. Watson explains how the enhanced
3D Viewer simplifies the 3D sampling process and gives increased control
over product designs and construction. “Our customers partner with us to
help streamline their collection development process and the new Centric
innovations in 3D give them more precision when assessing samples and
make design and development process much faster.”

“Centric has always been an innovation leader with user experience and
adoption being keystones of our success,” says Chris Groves, president
and CEO of Centric Software. “We empower our fashion, outdoor, footwear,
luxury and consumer goods brands, retailers and manufacturers in their
everyday work to drive their own innovations, speed time to market and
achieve business growth.”
