Centric Software : a solid partnership with 16 certified consultants !

We have been working with Centric Software for 4 years. This software editor is now the leader in fashion & retail PLM worldwide, and has now more than 200 customers.

This partnership has started very modestly but it has gained momentum these last 2 years and we are today more than 20 collaborators working on their solution.

Our project to open an agency in Munich is now live, among other things, it will help in deploying our partner’s solution on the German market. Our support is provided both on business and technical aspects as well as the setup and improvement of the solution, settings and advanced configuration, interfacing with third-party tools or users’ training. Since Feb. 4th 2019, we have a team of design specialists able to work on 2D and 3D design tools, natively interfaced with the PLM.

What is Centric Software certification ?

As collaborators, our referent at Centric exchanges once a year with our teams, to report on the projects they have implemented. This record allows to complete a skills matrix which grants a certification attesting modules’ master and his expertise level.

In 2019, 16 collaborators were certified Centric Software. These certifications, on line with our scope of action, are diverse and allow us to intervene on data integration from third-party systems to the migration of the PLM to higher versions. Workshop management is also assessed, placing business skills at the heart of the certification.

Therefore, our collaborators are equally certified “Workshops”, “Advanced Configuration” or “Performance Optimization”. Beyond certifying our skills, it allows us to testify to projects contribution. Some of our clients ask us for secrecy regarding their project therefore our certifications become our only proof of intervention.

What are the main challenges ?

For our teams, this “buffer” is particulary important : it promotes the load of work, but it also highlights the trust our partner places in us. It contributes to comfort customers who do not yet know us about our ability to work with them.

Besides making us legitimate, the certification offers us new opportunities and allows Fit Retail to offer an additional expertise in addition to Centric’s.

For Centric Software, it is also a way to integrate our collaborators to their projects by presenting a multi skilled team.
