NHCO Nutrition® Laboratories Selects Centric PLM to Transform Product Development

French dietary supplement producer partners with Centric Software for internationalization, data security & optimized communication

CAMPBELL, Calif., October 3, 2023Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader, proudly announces its partnership with NHCO Nutrition® Laboratories, a French dietary supplement producer. Centric Software provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to plan, design, develop, source and sell products such as apparel, footwear, sporting goods, furniture, home décor, consumer electronics, cosmetics, food & beverage and luxury to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.

 Founded in 2008 by pharmacist, Charles Elkrief, NHCO Nutrition Laboratories has become an essential player in the field of micronutrition. NHCO, affiliate of the Chiesi group since 2018, is a French food supplement laboratory specializing in researching and developing formulas based on amino acids, which is the foundation of their expertise: Aminoscience®.  As a mission-driven company, NHCO advocates for an informed and responsible use of dietary supplements and has been providing training to healthcare professionals who recommend its products since 2008.

Supporting the growth and internationalization of NHCO Nutrition, along with the increasing number of products and raw materials led NHCO to decide to invest in their first PLM system just over a year ago.

“It is essential to have a tool to centralize and structure the product lifecycle process,” says François Bernard, ICT Manager, Global IT at NHCO Nutrition Laboratories.

NHCO looks to the project to ensure product data security, optimize internal communication and certify product traceability as well as drive growth and internationalization efforts. As NHCO assessed potential PLM partners, François Bernard shares that the Centric Software team was highly involved throughout the process.

“Centric has been supporting us throughout the project,” says François Bernard. “Their presentations, demos and responses to our questions were of high quality and delivered with responsiveness, which gave us confidence in their expertise.”

“We chose Centric Software because Centric PLM is a comprehensive tool that also offers a user-friendly experience,” says François Bernard. “We were also impressed by Centric’s Agile Methodology, which promotes team collaboration and fast time to value.”

“We’ve established key performance indicators to evaluate the success of the implementation,” shares François Bernard. “We are expecting high user adoption rates, a reduction in email communication related to product development and the migration of product information, including formulations, into Centric PLM.”

“We look forward to our partnership with NHCO Nutrition Laboratories as they continue to expand internationally,” says Chris Groves, CEO of Centric Software. “We are excited that they’ve chosen Centric PLM as the foundation for their product lifecycle process and commitment to continuous improvement.”
