Steve Chastain, Global Head of IT at Volcom, remembers the pinch point when the company had to make a decision about their existing Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. “Our users were dissatisfied and frustrated with our legacy PLM system. We faced a decision as a company. Should we continue on with the scheduled upgrade, or take a step back and re-evaluate our options?”
