US Centric Software has announced the opening of a new office in Hong Kong, bringing its innovative Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions to local retailers, brands and manufacturers. Centric Software is the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, luxury, outdoor and consumer goods companies.
The opening of the Hong Kong office confirms Centric Software’s explosive growth in Asia, having recently opened an office in Tokyo, Japan in 2016 and Shanghai, China in 2014. 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.
Supporting not only retailers and brands, but also original design manufacturers (ODM) and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) with flexible, configurable, out-of-the-box and intuitive PLM, Centric Software solutions enable companies to speed time to market, improve team collaboration and cut costs while developing deeper bonds with trading partners.
“Fashion companies here are really excited to finally have a modern, mobile PLM solution available to them. They want innovative easy to use, cloud and mobile-based PLM software that provides a ‘single version of the truth’ solution,” Wei explains, “Centric’s mobile applications, which are the first to be developed in the sector, keep product teams connected at all times to aid product design development and execution.”
“In Asia, when a company invests in a technology partner, they want to know you are present and a have strong local team to service them. 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.
“We are very excited to announce the opening of our new home in Hong Kong,” said Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software. “We will continue to build on innovations made with our customer partners in the region and will look forward to welcoming new ones into the Centric family.”
