Opening of Japan office brings new product lifecycle management (PLM) opportunities to the Asian market 

Campbell, Calif., June 14 2016 – Centric Software has opened its first office in Tokyo, Japan, bringing its market leading PLM solutions to local fashion, footwear, luxury and consumer goods companies. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Centric has offices around the world including Barcelona, London, Hong Kong, Göteborg, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, Munich, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Silicon Valley.
