CAMPBELL, Calif., October 29, 2019 – Centric Software is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Studio F.
Studio F is one of the major women’s fashion brands in Colombia and has expanded internationally through its network of 380+ owned stores in Mexico, Chile and Panama, and franchises and wholesalers in Peru, Guatemala and Ecuador and more. Studio F also sells through several localized e-commerce sites. The brand has recently added men’s and children’s collections.
Jorge Mario Serrate, head of solutions for Latin America at Studio F explains, it was impossible to increase speed and agility using Studio F’s previous proprietary solution.
“We did not have complete traceability of our processes, and they were carried out very slowly. For certain parts of the process flow, we had to communicate outside the system using email or send Excel files with the status of items in development. Information was dispersed in different places, so it was hard for anyone to see the bigger picture.”
Today, with Centric PLM providing a digital foundation, Studio F has doubled its number of products, increased its number of stores in Mexico and Chile from 57 to 156, launched e-commerce sites across multiple countries and decreased time to market by 14%.
How did Centric PLM help Studio F conquer the Latin American fashion world?
