CIMdata Publishes eBook: “ROI for PLM Deployments in the Food and Beverage Industry”

Strong ROI secures executive support

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 11 April 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, released a new eBook focused on Return on Investment (ROI) for PLM Deployments in the Food and Beverage (F&B) Industry.

This eBook describes how a well-developed ROI can help gain executive support for deploying a PLM solution. The eBook reviews what items should be included in an ROI model. It then identifies some of the critical issues where PLM can impact F&B companies. It closes with both CIMdata and several SpecPage customers’ viewpoints of how SpecPDM can help F&B companies improve their business performance.

According to Mr. Tom Gill, PLM Enterprise Value & Integration Knowledge Council Manager, “ROI of PLM is a topic in which CIMdata has deep experience from working with clients across industries including F&B. When SpecPage approached CIMdata about publishing this eBook on ROI, we were happy to take on the project. We believe that PLM must be driven by business needs, and ROI is a critical element that describes how well a PLM deployment can meet those needs. In working with SpecPage on this project, we were impressed with their knowledge about F&B and the successes they have had supporting their customers’ PLM journeys.”
