CAMPBELL, Calif., June 22, 2023 – Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, and Vizoo, the material scanning and digitization innovator, have announced a strategic partnership. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source, price and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
Based in Germany and operating globally, Vizoo is the market leader in material scanning and digitization solutions for fashion, furniture and automotive purposes. Vizoo provides technology, know-how and support for material digitization and digital processes, and is the number one solution for scanning materials such as fabrics, leathers and other textiles in the apparel industry.
Vizoo and Centric Software are integrating digital materials more deeply into the product lifecycle by connecting Vizoo’s solutions directly with Centric PLM®. Designers and product developers can now scan materials from Vizoo, with this information syncing directly into the Centric PLM materials library. 3D asset visuals and data are automatically updated in the Centric platform and, by extension, into all applicable Centric Software solutions such as Visual Boards.
“Together, we have built a seamless connection between Vizoo and Centric solutions,” says Ron Watson, EVP Products, CSO at Centric Software. “Vizoo’s groundbreaking material digitization technology is a solution of choice for our customers in apparel and other soft goods products, and we are delighted to partner with Vizoo to transform how customers work with digital materials. Centric PLM integrates easily with other platforms, enabling teams to work in their familiar solution environment, like Vizoo, while interacting directly with product information in Centric PLM. This integration reinforces Centric PLM’s position as the hub for 3D assets and further streamlines the product concept-to-launch process.”
“As the market leader in material digitization solutions, connectivity is very important to us,” says Martin Semsch, CEO at Vizoo GmbH. “Our integration with Centric PLM allows users to easily transfer digital assets throughout the design and development organization as well as the supply chain.”
Customers who use both Centric PLM and Vizoo solutions are already working with the connector to revolutionize everyday design, sourcing and product development processes.
“Vizoo is at the cutting edge of materials digitization,” says Fabrice Canonge, President of Centric Software. “At Centric, we pursue a 3D agnostic strategy and partner with best-of-breed solution providers to enrich user experience and enhance overall solution capabilities. By closely integrating Vizoo 3D assets and workflows into the Centric platform, it is faster, easier and more efficient for our customers to leverage digital materials in Centric PLM, further streamlining product go-to-market while also reducing overall costs and environmental impact.”

Founded in Germany, in 2013 and managed by Martin Semsch and Renate Eder, Vizoo is a team of experts working together with a strong network of partners and suppliers. Its main products, the xTex Scanner, xTex Software and physX platform, are already utilized to create 3D materials all over the world by over 400 companies in the fashion, interior and automotive business.
The virtualization of a physical material sample is a difficult and tedious task. What is commonly used is a flatbed scanner or consumer camera, several image processing tools and a lot of time.
Revolutionizing the process, Vizoo now offers a new way to easily create 3D materials. The xTex Scanner captures material samples fast and accurately, while the xTex software provides useful tools for texture processing. With a capture and calculation time of only two minutes, textures based on physical material information and up to 2000 dpi are now available almost instantly. The tool focuses on clarity and effectiveness, so even inexperienced users can create stunning materials.
The newest addition to the Vizoo product portfolio is the physX platform which allows users to assign fabric draping preset to the scanned materials – compatible with various 3D CAD simulation tools; the perfect digital twin in no time. Furthermore, Vizoo provides a care-free material visualization service.
