Acushnet to device Centric PLM suite


Acushnet, Global leader in designing, developing, manufacturing, and distributing Golf products has gone live with Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management Solution. It provides the most ingenious solutions to Fashion, retail, outdoor, consumer goods, and footwear companies to achieve strategic and operational digital goals.

“The company needed a PLM solution to handle more complex, growing operations. As we evolved, we collaborated with more sourcing partners around the globe using emails, Excel sheets, and phone calls. We couldn’t run reports easily, it was cumbersome, and we lacked live and transparent information – we needed to get more efficient,” Jordan Harrop, senior analyst – FJ operations at Acushnet said in a Centric press release

Based in Massachusetts, Acushnet is the global leader in the design, development, manufacture, and distribution of performance-driven golf products. Acushnet encompasses six golf brands, including equipment brand Titleist and footwear brand FootJoy.

After an in-depth selection process, Acushnet chose Centric Outdoor PLM. Acushnet implemented Centric on time and on the budget for FootJoy’s footwear division and Titleist’s golf gear division. Vendors are connected to the system, and Acushnet is now rolling Centric out across their apparel division and planning an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system integration.
