Part of our review and evaluation was to understand what are the core features of Centro and how these solve typical problems of the everyday information workers in manufacturing:
- Data silos: One of the most critical bottlenecks in manufacturing nowadays is the lack of access to engineering-type information. Just a smaller portion of engineering teams have instant access to these data, whereas the wider enterprise would need it as well to perform the daily tasks. Centro provides a unified platform to overcome this information bottleneck and extend access to data for everyone who needs it.
- Lengthy design cycles – lack of collaboration: One of the biggest challenges in product development and product management is the lack of real-time, effective collaboration. Centro aims to provide a platform that speeds up decision making and makes project management a breeze by allowing all stakeholders to have instant access to a user-friendly platform where they can easily share, manage and review product and design data.
- Traditional PLM systems are high complexity – low user adoption: PDM and PLM systems are usually too complicated for both engineers and users in other departments, therefore they find alternative ways to access and manage their data. Centro overcomes this challenge by providing all the functionality you need but in an easy to understand manner and without the need for lengthy training or specialized skills.
A special thank you to Finances Online for taking the time to carefully review our software solution and for praising our continuous development efforts with their awards!
