California, United States – Chinese intimates leader Aimer has selected Centric Software to provide its PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solution. Aimer will use Centric 8 PLM to improve data management in product design and Research and Development (R&D), and to enhance collaboration between R&D, design and development.
After 22 years of activity, Aimer has become an undisputed fashion underwear market leader in China. In a rapidly growing and highly competitive fashion market, Aimer decided to further leverage product development by adopting a PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solution to enhance its R&D management and response time.
