Italian group Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB partners with Centric Software to streamline collaboration, boost productivity and reduce time-to-market.
Centric Software offers innovative business solutions designed for the planning, design, development, procurement and distribution of products - apparel, footwear, sports equipment, furniture, home furnishings, beauty products, food and beverages, luxury goods... - enabling companies to achieve their strategic and operational digital transformation objectives.
For over 70 years, Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB has been developing top-of-the-range professional hair care products for the Italian and international markets. The group offers premium products, adapted to the specific needs of local markets and suitable for different hair types and natures. Its sales network is deployed in 91 countries, and offers 170,000 references - shampoos, masks, styling products, hydrogen peroxide and other technical products.
Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB's ambition is to enhance beauty through an ethical and sustainable approach to cosmetics designed to beautify their users.
In 2021, this commitment by Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB to responsible, sustainable and transparent actions was recognized by the Italian State, which awarded it the qualification of a company of general interest.
From the outset, Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB owes its success to its commitment to three strategic pillars: innovation, digital transformation and sustainable development. In 2022, Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB has identified the need for a new digital solution to consolidate its competitive edge and the strength of the guiding pillars underpinning its commitments.
"Teams were wasting precious time entering data by hand, opening the door to human error, says Giulio Pistolato, IT Manager at Pettenon Cosmetics SPA SB. We seized the opportunity to streamline our data and automate tasks with the aim of offloading our teams, improving our productivity and reducing our costs."
Following a process of analysis and evaluation of the various solutions on the market, Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB selected Centric PLM, Centric's PLM solution for cosmetics, skincare and fragrances, to support its digital transformation objectives.
"We chose Centric PLM because it was able to meet all our needs, and because it's one of the best solutions in the industry, justifies Giulio Pistolato. The PLM repository common to all data, and its ability to increase efficiency, reduce the risk of error, and guarantee our compliance with safety and environmental standards, will ultimately contribute to boosting the quality of our products and reducing our time-to-market."
Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB plans to deploy Centric PLM in several departments, including R&D, purchasing, logistics and IT. The PLM platform will host over fifty new product development projects.
"Thanks to Centric PLM, we expect to be able to significantly consolidate our product development, adds Giulio Pistolato. With automation, we expect to increase productivity, reduce costs and improve product quality - all factors that will strengthen our competitiveness in the marketplace."
Collaboration is another of Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB's core values, and the company is looking forward to a long-term partnership with Centric Software.
"The collaboration with the Centric Software team was extremely constructive, dynamic, and helped lay the foundations for growth."says Giulio Pistolato.
"We are delighted with our partnership with Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB, concludes Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. Our companies share the same values of innovation, digital transformation and sustainable development. We look forward to deepening our collaboration with Pettenon Cosmetics Spa SB, with a view to the long term."
