Baby gear company replaces their old PLM with Centric
CAMPBELL, Calif., November 2, 2021 – Centric Software® is delighted to announce the release of a success story about its customer, UPPAbaby.
UPPAbaby was founded in 2006 and is based in Massachusetts. The company produces high-quality strollers and car seats. Known for their innovative and functional designs, the company grew quickly to distribution in 53 countries worldwide. They place safety, comfort, and ease of use at the forefront of their values, much to the delight of trusting parents.
Due to the rapid pace of their growth, they knew they needed to upgrade from spreadsheets and emails for product development. Their technical baby gear like strollers had up to 1000 components. The first PLM system they chose faltered at the basic task of building a BOM for their complex products. The search for the right PLM began anew.
Today their workflows are streamlined and automated with information readily available in one, central repository. Information duplication is reduced as are errors. How did this smooth sailing come about?
The UPPAbaby mission is to make the smartest strollers, car seats and juvenile gear available: intuitively designed, stylish and sleek, with the features and functions all parents want—plus innovations they never knew were possible. UPPAbaby is committed to providing a customer experience that is as exceptional as the company’s products. Founded in 2006, UPPAbaby is based in Massachusetts, USA with products available worldwide.
