Outdoor Brand Helly Hansen Innovates with Centric Software

CAMPBELL, Calif., Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Centric Software® is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, Helly Hansen.

Helly Hansen was founded in 1877 in Norway by sea captain Helly Juell Hansen and his wife Marguerite, who discovered an effective way of keeping sailors and fishermen dry and warm in the harsh Norwegian weather. Today, Helly Hansen gear is worn and trusted by professionals in sailing, skiing, mountaineering and on worksites, as well as nature-lovers across the world who enjoy outdoor pursuits.

Ferdinand Diener, Process and Quality Manager, reflects on the challenges that faced the rapidly growing business, particularly the difficulties with version control and a lack of integration across multiple platforms: "We struggled to keep up with growth and our workforce found it difficult to keep to deadlines and follow process steps. Even with another Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) in place, people were still using Excel spreadsheets and constantly making updates to versions in multiple places."

Today, with the single source of truth provided by Centric's Outdoor PLM solution, Helly Hansen is experiencing improved visibility, traceability and speed in product development, making it possible to focus on the innovation and quality that distinguishes the brand.

"Because Centric PLM is so fast and easy to use, people are able to do a more thorough job, create more products and improve quality oversight. We're a quality-driven, innovation-focused brand, so this is critical."

Helly Hansen sees a bright future with Centric, "we will continue growing together. Centric is molding the system around us, and we are molding around the system."
