Outdoor Retailer Winter Market | Denver, CO | Lunch and Learn Nov. 9, Day 2 @ 12:00, 2018 Colorado Convention Center in meeting room 303

Join three top mountain athletes at their premier visit to the Outdoor Retailer Winter Show.


Come meet River Swenson, Roxy Cochran and Rufus LaMontange, learn first hand how better products make better outdoor athletes. These three rugged experts require that new products get to market faster, better, and more cost-effective. They rely on dog toys that last, leashes that don’t fray, and the right harness for the right job.

Listen and Learn how Centric PLM software helps to ensure Outward Hound products are the best they can be!

Centric will feature Outward Hound pet accessories and how they made their decisions. Outward Hound interviewed several vendors before settling on Centric Software’s cloud-based PLM solution. Learn what were the differentiating factors. Manufactures create awesome outdoor products. But do they have a Product Lifecycle Management solution to guide the entire internal and external teams? Centric PLM can help manufacturers improve time to market, boost product innovation and streamline product development. Leading outdoor brands around the world report that Centric helps them improve their productivity by up to 50% and sales by up to 10%.
