National Retail Federation’s Big Show Will be Held Jan. 17-20 in New York City
LOS GATOS, Calif., Jan. 5, 2016 – The National Retail Federation (NRF) 2016 Show, dubbed Retail’s Big Show, is a showcase for the industry’s most innovative technologies and the place to be for retailers. NRF welcomes retail executives from all around the world who are searching for the most innovative and modern solutions and tools. Centric Software is proud to exhibit at this year’s convention.
During this four-day event, industry professionals will gather to network and share perspectives on the industry. Centric Software will seize the opportunity to showcase its pioneering solutions geared around retail and merchandising. Centric solutions help fashion, retail, footwear, luxury and consumer goods companies work differently, and ultimately build better, more cost-effective and higher quality products.
Centric Software will be at booth 754 in the Mobile and Digital Pavilion to present Centric 8 Product Lifecycle Management for retail, including its Merchandising Planning Module that enables retailers to collect data, analyze information and act in realtime. Also for presentation will be Centric Cloud PLM, a new cloud-based, SaaS PLM solution specifically designed with small businesses in mind.
“Centric provides innovative software for the most prestigious names in retail, fashion and consumer goods, including Ackermans, Bestseller Fashion Group, Fast Retailing, MANGO, Marc Jacobs, Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger, Truworths and Under Armour. We make our products better with the input of these leading names. Our aim is to help retailers be agile in order to adapt, evolve and keep pace with the market,” explains Chris Groves, Centric Software President and CEO.
Centric will also showcase its latest addition to its industry-leading suite of mobile applications, the Retail Review App. Mobility not only introduces unprecedented agility and real-time reactivity without being chained to a desk, but it also helps capture information outside of the scope of traditional PLM systems. More than 1,000 retail professionals already use Centric’s Retail Review App in more than 30 languages to assess and improve store operational performance wherever they are in the world, at anytime.
“Continuous changes in the retail environment are having a profound impact on the industry as a whole, leading brands and retailers to work differently. With the growing threat of competition, the complexities and risks of international expansion, as well as constant changing digital and social channels, retailers must work differently. Centric 8 Product Lifecycle Management provides innovative solutions to harness the power of design and development, streamline the supply chain, and empower retail teams to bring great products to market and ensure brand compliance within retail operations,” concludes Groves.
