60 days to implement across 2 continents

RAPID user adoption and ROI



The need to juggle licensed and own-brand product development within extremely tight delivery windows demands significant coordination and clear communication. After more than a decade of rapid, organic growth, Modern Gourmet Foods sought a centralized enterprise system to handle the pressure of increasing competition.

Modern Gourmet Foods quickly discovered Centric Software’s cloud-based SaaS PLM solution for small to medium enterprises, Centric SMB. Attracted by the promise of technology road-tested by some of the world’s biggest brands and the intuitive nature of Centric’s solution, they selected and implemented Centric SMB in just two months.

Modern Gourmet Foods originally set out three expectations for the PLM project: centralization of data, visibility into the product lifecycle and user satisfaction. All three were met by Centric SMB. The company has saved between $70,000 and $100,000 a year in project management time, simply by having a collaborative system and a single, actionable version of the truth.
