Centric Software’s latest release of its flagship Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is keeping today’s remote worker in mind.
In order to respond to the increasing need for teams to connect remotely and collaborate efficiently in digital spaces, the new v7.2 introduces integration with Slack so users can chat without leaving the PLM environment. It also includes a Conversations feature for formal threaded communications on various aspects of products being developed in Centric PLM.
"As working from home becomes widespread and companies continue to grow and expand to different geographic locations, ease of communication becomes ever more important," said Ron Watson, VP of Product at Centric Software. "The latest version of Centric PLM introduces social features for easy, natural and intuitive collaboration between team members. Slack integration and our reimagined Conversations feature will make product development and launch more seamless, efficient, creative and fast."
Furthermore, users can also now create new 3D materials in Centric that use components of existing 3D materials. Centric has extended the management of 3D digital assets to include 3D avatars, allowing designers and product developers to import and organize 3D avatars in avatar libraries within Centric PLM.
It also includes other UI/UX improvements and enhancements for increased efficiency, ease of use and speed to market.
