Steve Chastain, Global Head of IT at Volcom, remembers the pinch point when the company had to make a decision about their existing Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. “Our users were dissatisfied and frustrated with our legacy PLM system. We faced a decision as a company. Should we continue on with the scheduled upgrade, or take a step back and re-evaluate our options?”
Volcom’s brand vision is focused on turning obstacles into opportunities, and they decided to take a bold step forward. Working within a short timeline, the company evaluated and implemented Centric 8 PLM.
Today, a task that used to take two weeks now takes a day and a half. Volcom has achieved greater visibility across their product lifecycle, and teams now communicate and collaborate through Centric PLM.
