Socks for a cause

Bobas donations to homeless shelters
Bombas gives back

We love our socks!  They keep us warm in winter and cute patterns can add fun to cold days.  We also love kindness!  Now Bombas has figured out a way to combine two things we love.  Bombas, an innovative, comfort-focused sock brand also gives back to the community.  Bombas donates a pair of socks to homeless shelters for every pair sold.   Bombas founders David Heath and Randy Goldberg discovered that socks are the most requested item at homeless shelters. Feeling compelled to do something about it, the leaders championed a give-back business model.  To date, Bombas has donated over 9 million pairs of socks to people in need.  Bombas arranges donations through 1,200 non-profit partners across all 50 states.

Based in New York, Bombas has invested heavily in research and development.  The company aims to produce innovative fabrics for its supremely comfortable socks for men, women and children.  Bombas recently decided to search for a product lifecycle management solution.  They interviewed several vendors before settling on Centric Software’s cloud-based, SaaS solution, Centric SMB.  Each Bombas sock is constructed using the company’s proprietary Sock Tech.   Sock Tech contains substantial improvements to the comfort, performance and design of the traditional sock.

“We are very happy to announce that Bombas has selected Centric as their PLM partner,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software.  He notes that Bobas proves that there is a “huge appetite for their combination of quality products and a socially-conscious business model. We’re proud to support this innovative young brand with a robust digital platform as they enter a new stage of growth and evolution.”
