In addition, the company recently announced the signature of its first customer in Australia, Redbubble. Leveraging the success and continued growth in the region, now with 25 Asian customers, Centric plans to further develop the market in Hong Kong and the surrounding regions.
“Prior to the opening of our new Hong Kong office, we had already built strong momentum with several large customers. Companies in Hong Kong and throughout South East Asia need modern, mobile-based PLM solutions. It’s a big space to grow,” said Nick Wei, Regional Sales Director Hong Kong at Centric Software.
“The fashion market is very competitive and companies need every possible advantage beginning with the products they make and sell; products are the heart of any brand, retailer or manufacturer. Making great products starts with great product development technology, like Centric PLM,” Wei adds.

This new office will allow Centric Software to work in close proximity with our customers and provide them with the industry best practices and Agile DeploymentSM knowledge needed to enable their ambitious growth strategies,” Wei concludes.
