👀 what our customers are saying:

“When Crocs first started to work with Centric, there was a perception inside the organization that it was just a product system. What we’ve been able to do in the last couple of years is really change that philosophy and we’ve really seen Centric become the heartbeat of the organization.”
SVP Global Product & Merchandising | CROCS

“There’s a great sense of comfort in having one place for product data and a digital workspace where we can collaborate faster, streamline communication, save time spent searching for information and analyze our progress.”
Director of Production | Rothy’s

“Centric is very intuitive to use, which has made it easy for our teams to get to grips with the new system. Centric has been through similar implementations with several other footwear companies, so they have tons of lessons and best practices to pass on to us.”
