Siplec Chooses Centric PLM

French retail powerhouse selects Centric Software PLM to streamline operations

CAMPBELL, Calif., 4 June, 2019 – Siplec, the company that handles the supply of manufactured products for retailer E.Leclerc, has selected Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury and consumer goods companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

Founded in 1979, Siplec is an international company belonging to the E.Leclerc Group, a worldwide leader in retail. Historically a trader of petroleum products, Siplec is now a key player in the supply of manufactured products (apparel, home goods and other products) for 790 supermarkets and hypermarkets across Europe.

Siplec needed the means to handle diverse products and growth in new geographies with teams now spread across six offices in China, Vietnam, Bangladesh, India and Paris, France. The company looked for a PLM platform capable of managing all product-related functions in order to standardize operating procedures across the board.

“We wanted a solution with an architecture that allows us to manage our data flow quickly and supports a large number of users around the world to facilitate better international collaboration between retail and product teams,” says Bruno Toulout, IT Manager at Siplec.

“In particular, we chose Centric because it is simple to deploy and because of Centric’s Skyline architecture, which allows access to a massive amount of data and analysis of assumptions in real time. After implementing this solution, we anticipate concrete improvements in terms of productivity and shortening deadlines in order to reach our goal of excellence,” Toulout continues.

“We are excited to partner with Siplec,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “We are honored to collaborate with a major retail player in the international supermarket scene and very pleased that they have chosen Centric PLM to streamline and accelerate their product development process in pursuit of their goals of optimizing the retail experience and customer loyalty.”
