Seeing is believing, 👀 what our customers are saying… 

“When Crocs first started to work with Centric 8, 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 8 become the heartbeat of the organization.”  

Senior Design Manager | Crocs 

“Sustainability is important to our industry and people are looking for it. More and more environmental components are becoming available and that changes all the time. Without tools like Centric PLM, it is really hard to be able to trust that every shoe along your supply chain meets that standard if you don’t have that visibility.” 

Senior VP of Global Operations | Wolverine Worldwide

“Entering styles in the system used to take the Snow team two weeks, and it now takes them a day and a half – almost 7x faster than the old way.  

Global Head of IT | Volcom

“The fact that you can eliminate the 14 different places that everybody’s having to update, and have one central source of truth that can also then feed your other systems, is amazing. We’re at about 97% and it’s been transformative for our teams.”
