Celebrating over three decades of pioneering outdoor equipment, the company identified the need for modern and comprehensive PLM software to drive growth by streamlining processes and enhancing product design and quality.
"As we enter our next phase of growth, the adoption of PLM aligns perfectly with our vision of bringing groundbreaking products to market and our strategy of making technology choices that enable and empower our teams to reinforce our position as a global leader in omni-terrain outdoor gear," says James Twomey, Chief Technology Officer at Sea to Summit.
