California, United States – From their headquarters in Glasgow, Scotland, and design studios, showrooms and offices around the world, Wilson delivers creative and commercial products to a stable of branded retailers and private label businesses. Wilson selected product lifecycle management (PLM) software from Centric Software, citing communication, efficiency and usability as the criteria driving its choice.
Founded as a family business, Wilson offers personalized design, sourcing and supply chain services that cover the full spectrum of casual wear, footwear and accessories. With 200 employees worldwide, including more than 40 dedicated designers, Wilson has secured long-term contracts with customers like Bloomingdale’s, ASOS, Forever 21, Saks 5th Avenue, New Look, Zumiez, Primark, Urban Outfitters and Sport Direct.
For the past decade, Wilson has experienced continuous growth, expanding quickly from a single location with ties to remote manufacturing regions, to a truly international business with operations in Hong Kong, London, New York, Karachi and Hangzhou.
Head of Merchandising Gill Barr and her teams chose to adopt what they saw as the fashion industry’s most specialized, best-in-class PLM platform.
“We trusted Centric implicitly from day one,” Barr says. “We investigated multiple PLM vendors and found that Centric’s out-of-the-box solution, straightforward usability and unparalleled fashion industry references, made it the only sensible match for our business.”
Centric Software CEO, Chris Groves, believes that Wilson’s drive for collaboration is key to success. “Wilson’s push to improve communication and collaboration across growing international teams is an important milestone in their growth plans,” Groves says. “We are pleased to play a hand in helping them to continue to deliver great products to great brands.”
