CAMPBELL, Calif. Thursday, January 03, 2013 –
Retail, footwear, apparel, luxury and consumer-goods companies looking for more information about PLM (product lifecycle management) have the opportunity when Centric Software hosts several free PLM events—one online and two at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City.
Attendees will hear PLM success stories and learn about new mobile apps for Centric PLM.
The Jan. 17 webinar, titled “From Concept to Sale: Two PLM Case Studies about Visionary Customers,” will be held at 11 a.m. PST. Presented by Centric Vice President of Marketing James Horne, the webinar will include experience and knowledge from two Centric customers who have adopted product and sales strategies. The discussion will examine how these companies have been able to “connect their business practices” by utilizing the single Centric software system that employs mobile technologies.
A seminar titled “How PLM Mobile Apps Revolutionize Product Quality, Safety and Compliance Management” will be held at noon on Jan. 24 at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. Speakers Horne and Humberto Roa, head of mobile strategies at Centric, will guide a hands-on demonstration of Centric’s newest mobile apps for Centric 8 PLM.
In Centric’s “Lunch & Learn PLM Seminar,” attendees will learn how the latest, easy-to-use, interactive apps have allowed business users to modify and achieve their quality, safety and compliance goals. The two new mobile apps, Factory Audit and Sample Review, are useful in factory settings, sample rooms and fitting rooms during fit sessions. In addition, participants have an opportunity to run a fit session, record quality concerns in a sample room, record safety compliance for trace chemicals based on REACH or based on California Safer Consumer Products Act requirements, and audit environmental compliance for factory waste.—Sarah Wolfson
