Product Sourcing
"Centric sets a new bar in
global sourcing from a
collaborative standpoint. It
has suppliers, agents,
distributors and
merchandising folks all
coming together on a
single platform. It enables
them to know where the
product is, when it's
coming in and what the
problems are.  Everyone
sees the same."
