Product Lifecycle Management

A full-featured, configurable, user-first PLM for the food processing industry

Managing a product lifecycle in food processing is first and foremost about enabling cross-functional collaboration. Unifize takes a unique approach to this problem with the following features:

  • A simple, intuitive, chat-based interface for creating records and problem-solving with your team in real-time. The user interface is so easy to understand that virtually no training is required.
  • Our template library and drag-and-drop process builder that maps to your PLM processes (no more cookie-cutter solutions that force you to fit into someone else’s system!)
  • A deep email integration that brings customers, vendors and other internal users closer to your product lifecycle.

Our case studies show that adoption of Unifize is in hours, not the  months and even years of other systems!

So, whether it’s managing ideas, documents, approvals, feedback, change requests, projects, recipes, raw material/finished goods specifications, artwork/labelling, process parameters, Unifize makes managing the product lifecycle simple, intuitive and fast.
