Product companies that need to move faster and make smarter decisions are challenged by a sprawling tech stack that silos data, isolates teams, and fails to meet evolving business needs. The result is:
Slower Product Innovation
You can’t meet market needs when customer and product teams can’t effectively collaborate.
Delayed Product Launches
Gaps in data and processes impede communication, resulting in missed launch dates.
Missed Profit Targets
Profitable products are impossible to design when cost information is outdated, missing, or hard to find.

Insight and Intelligence
Robust visibility of customer, product, and financial data allows teams to make the right decision faster. Integrated project management aligns teams, while BOM cost roll-ups provide real-time view of product margins so product, supply chain, and procurement teams have the right information to deliver profitable products.
A single system of engagement across the enterprise unifies customer and product teams to deliver the best possible customer experience. Frictionless flow of product information to commercial teams helps improve marketing and ecommerce efforts, while customer information flowing to product teams helps build better products with strong market demand.
The same product record owned by product teams is accessed and enriched by commercial teams—and stays in sync as changes happen. Marketing and ecommerce can work with confidence and in parallel with product development to ready channels for product introduction prior to product release, allowing product launches to happen earlier and with a higher price.
Evolve products with multiple BOM views, draft BOMs, and redlines. Capture tribal knowledge and access design history through contextual communications tied directly to product artifacts.
Leverage smart automation, rich workflows, and criteria-based approvals that evolve designs to reduce cost, improve product performance, and align with market requirements.
