Centric Software Adds Two Mobile Apps, and expands Product Lifecycle Management. The product design and development process will become faster, easier, more accurate and more productive for consumer goods companies with the addition of two innovative mobile apps to Centric Software's portfolio of patent-pending mobile apps. 
 
Switchboard Mobile App and Material Sample Mobile App are the latest mobile apps for the Centric 8 product lifecycle management (PLM) solution. Product introduction, driven by tremendous product variety and a relentless need for speed to market, is revenue-critical for consumer products companies, says Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric. 
 
“With these new mobile apps, a designer who has a moment of inspiration while sitting at a coffee shop, traveling on a train, or attending a textiles show can capture that inspiration immediately, bring it to fruition faster, and spur the product introduction process,” says Groves. The apps offer easy-to-use ways to bring the benefits of the mobile enterprise to the design and development processes of consumer goods companies without frustrating creative talent, he explains.
 
Switchboard Mobile App: The Switchboard Mobile App harnesses the power of iOS third-party applications and enables these apps to upload images and content directly to Centric 8 PLM business items, such as inspirations, styles, themes and materials. For example, designers can sketch out products concepts using their favorite iOS drawing app, and then transfer the concept sketches to Centric 8 using the Switchboard Mobile App —all with the ease of a few clicks. 
 
The Switchboard Mobile App allows key contributors to work with familiar tools, promotes high levels of creativity, and reduces reliance on myriad paper sketches and boards, says Groves. “PLM’s critical role as the ‘single source of truth’ about the product is fulfilled, leveraging the vast array of third-party iOS app content with unprecedented ease of use.” 
 
Material Sample Mobile App: The Material Sample Mobile App allows designers and others to capture and share material inspirations while on the go. Using their iPhones, designers can quickly capture material details such as photos, vendor information, and material properties. This information is automatically uploaded to Centric 8 PLM, allowing early access to team members for costing, quality testing and other evaluation. 
 
The Material Sample Mobile App will be of particular interest for brand owners that use materials as a competitive differentiator, says Groves. These include makers of high-end products, companies looking to exercise great control over materials, and those for whom material performance is integralto the brand itself, such as technical apparel makers.
