Centric Software Employs Neotys NeoLoad to Stress and Load Test PLM Applications

MERRIMACK, N.H.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 20, 2008— Neotys, a leader in easy-to-use, cost effective stress and load testing tools for web applications, today announced that Centric Software is successfully using its NeoLoad software to stress and load its product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for the apparel and private-label industries.

Centrics PLM solutions are web based applications that uniquely incorporate line planning, global sourcing, calendar management, and product specification in one platform. Its solutions improve collaboration and empower global teams for wholesale, retail, and consumer goods companies. The Centric platform leverages proven, next-generation internet-based technology enabling team members and partners to securely access the information they need to improve global collaboration, execution, and business performance.

Customers that use Centric Software implement a highly configurable solution depending on how many users, locations and type of PLM modules the customer requires. Before working with Neotys, Centric developers used in-house tools to stress and load test different customer scenarios to see how the system would respond with multiple users, varying scenarios and changing load conditions. This manual approach proved to be time-consuming, and tedious. The company determined it needed a faster, better, easier way to load test applications and eventually picked Neotys NeoLoad to become its corporate standard for testing web based applications.

Using NeoLoad during our stress and load testing saves us an incredible amount of time and allows us to do a type of testing we couldn't have done otherwise, said Jean-Paul Durand, QA manager, Centric Software. After test driving other tools, it is clear that NeoLoad is the easiest to use while being able to address a multitude of different test scenarios, large multi-user loads and load testing conditions. The tool is excellent in resolving systems troubles that only manifest themselves under varying load conditions. The set up is uncomplicated, requires minimum training and can be handled by people with no programming background. And finally, its price is extremely competitive.

NeoLoad is a web stress testing software that runs high-load scenarios on web applications to measure performance and robustness prior to deployment. Unlike other web testing tools that require scripting, are overly complex and expensive, NeoLoad is easy-to-use due to its intuitive GUI interface, requires no scripting, provides a rich feature set at a cost effective price point. NeoLoad supports all web technologies and application server technologies including J2EE, .NET, PHP, AJAX, SOAP, FLASH, FLEX and Oracle Forms.

According to Stephane Jammet, vice president of sales and business development, Neotys Todays apparel and private-label companies are confronted with short lifecycles, swift changes in customer demand, and a worldwide dispersed supply chain. Centric Software recognizes this and offers next generation, web based PLM application suite to address these challenges. NeoLoad complements this quick-to-market model by offering Centric the ability to stress test their solutions in a fast, easy-to-use manner and efficient matter so that it can diminish the time to market of its own customized PLM solutions.
