NEMO, award-winning designer of outdoor gear and accessories that are built to improve the experience of adventure, has selected Centric’s product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for emerging enterprises, Centric SMB. Centric provides innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies.

NEMO has grown by an impressive 25 per cent annually in the last five years, bringing significant challenges.

“We’re a seasonal business like many Centric customers and our biggest challenge is synchronising product development timelines with go-to-market. Achieving that with spreadsheets, emails and other disassociated tools became unwieldy. We needed a centralised database of information to build our product development calendars,” Brent Merriam, chief operating officer at NEMO said in a press release.

Following demos and reference calls with satisfied Centric PLM users in the outdoor industry, NEMO selected Centric’s PLM solution for growing brands, Centric SMB.

“Centric SMB is intuitive to use and because Centric is very experienced in outdoor, we speak the same language from a product development standpoint. The biggest initial impact will be having a single source of truth, with a materials library and Bill of Materials (BOM) library for current and historical product data. We’ll be able to predict material order quantities more accurately, improve access to test data for the quality team and evaluate whether materials are meeting our sustainability goals. The Centric team has been very attentive and diligent, and we’re looking forward to kicking off the implementation,” Merriam said.

“We are excited to announce that NEMO has selected Centric SMB. NEMO is a rapidly-growing company that recognises the unique benefits of Centric PLM for outdoor and adventure brands, and we look forward to working with them,” Chris Groves, president and CEO of Centric said. (GK)
