Centric PLM is a platform of interconnected modules that boost end-to-end product development efficiency and collaboration with full control of workflows, supply chains, costs and time from initial concept to launch at retail.
Groundbreaking platform enabling teams to visualize data from many enterprise solutions. Work with live data, feedback in real time and empower dynamic group decision-making.
Centric PLM easily integrates with existing systems like ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), e-commerce, PIM (Product Information Management), DAM (Data Asset Management), compliance software, packaging software and many more.
Reduce costly and time-consuming packaging prototype development with 3D CAD software directly connected with Centric PLM. Empower everyone to view, annotate, comment and share virtual prototypes within PLM for a complete 3D workflow.
2D packaging engineers can also easily connect directly to PLM libraries while working in their native Adobe® Illustrator environment. This connection eliminates tedious data entry and admin tasks so teams can focus on innovation.
QMS facilitates revision management and a corrective action plan for non-conforming products to effectively manage all quality documentation for full traceability and regulatory compliance.
Centric’s industry-first suite of mobile apps connects directly to PLM so teams can work from anywhere and at any time inspiration strikes. With no need to rekey, information back at their desks, the time savings are huge!
Centric PLM has the fastest ROI in the industry with PLM deployments completed in months and can be implemented remotely. Centric’s unique Agile Deployment methodology is optimized to leverage Centric PLM’s flexible, configurable, out-of-the-box technology with built-in industry best practices.
