Centric PLM 6.0 comes with efficient & productive UI
Apr '17
Centric Software, the leading PLM solution for fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, and consumer goods companies, has announced that, building on its market driven innovation strategy, version 6.0 of Centric Software’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution, released earlier this year, includes a fresh, modern, and easy to use interface.

Centric Software PLM Version 6.0 focuses on usability and productivity to empower users and boast efficiency while also being fun and intuitive to use.

Ron Watson, VP of products at Centric Software said, “User experience and adoption have long been keystones of Centric’s success. We worked hand in hand with our customers to revolutionise Centric PLM’s look and feel adding in new branding and personalisation options, dashboards with widgets and charts to digest information at a glance, mass create and editing features to minimise clicks and many other improvements to promote adoption and make work easier.”

Camelbak Products, an outdoor equipment company based in Petaluma, California, best known for its hydration products, easily adopted the new UI.

Paul Rattay, PLM manager at Camelbak said, “One can never underestimate the importance of system usability and given how critical Centric PLM is to our business, Centric V6 is a breath of fresh air. Our users are delighted with the streamlined features and modern intuitive user interface in this update. As shepherd of the PLM function at CamelBak, it allows my team to focus on moving our process innovation forward and allows our extended teams to focus on bringing great products to market, faster.”

In addition to options for personalising workspaces and content via Centric’s new change tracking and subscription options, the new UI also boosts contextual searches and visual breadcrumbs to easily navigate around the system. Now with a choice of colour palettes, visual cues have been added to support navigation, interactions with the system, and promote deep use of functionality.

The new colours, style, and layout were built with the needs of fashion and consumer goods companies in mind but inspired by Silicon Valley best practices for UI design, thus, merging the best of both worlds.

The intuitive new interface also reduces training times and speeds user adoption. Learning curves and support time are minimised and return on investment the fastest in the industry. Version 6.0 includes other major, broad-sweeping innovations across the entire Centric PLM suite. In the past 6 months, over 100 new features have been introduced. (GK)
