PZ Cussons, the firm behind the Imperial Leather and Pure soap brands, has selected product lifecycle management software from UGS to speed up the delivery of new products.
PZ Cussons will use the Teamcenter software to standardise new product development practices across its worldwide operations. It will allow key staff to share product and technology information and give them easy access to product, patent and customer data.
The collaborative environment will also allow the soap giant to identify the potential for consolidating product variations on a local, regional or global level.
PZ Cussons’ group IT director David Jones said: “With Teamcenter as our global new product development and specification management system, we will improve our ability to share product technology across the company allowing us to bring more winning products to market faster.”
