Innovation-focused and market-driven
Boasting the highest user adoption, customer satisfaction and go-live rates of any PLM provider, we focus on user-friendly, mobile and powerful tools that extend PLM beyond its traditional boundaries.
Centric’s innovations are 100% market-driven, with product roadmaps developed hand-in-hand with our Customer Advisory Board to focus on real-world industry challenges. We develop agnostic, open-ended software that connects easily with other platforms like CAD, ERP, e-com, compliance databases and more to create full-scope, fully collaborative, one-version-of-the-truth solutions.
We’re sensitive to the need for a fast return on investment, utilizing our own cutting-edge Agile DeploymentSM implementation methodology to drive a sustainable approach to deployment with the industry’s fastest time to value. We have over 400 successful PLM deployments under our belts.
In 2014, Centric became the first to offer mobile apps for PLM, for team collaboration on the move. In 2017, Centric introduced distributed, high-scale Skyline architecture, for up to 10,000 users and years and years of active data. Centric was also first to launch innovative Adobe® Illustrator Connect and 3D design connectors, empowering design and product development teams to work in familiar 2D and 3D software environments while connected to PLM.
The results? Centric customers report a 5–10% increase in sales, a reduction in time to market by 15-50%, an improvement in productivity of 10-50% and a decrease in cost of goods sold (COGS) of 5-15%.
