FISHER/UNITECH will offer Aras Enterprise PLM (Aras EPLMTM), an out-of-the-box software solution designed exclusively for companies running SolidWorks. Built on top of SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, Aras EPLM is designed to enable global companies to improve product quality, accelerate time to market and achieve greater profitability, the company said. FISHER/UNITECH has been appointed as a reseller for the software solution by Aras Corporation.
"Aras EPLM offers substantial new functions and cost-savings capabilities for SolidWorks EPDM users," said Charlie Hess, President of FISHER/UNITECH.
Aras EPLM is designed to be a scalable and secure business-ready solution for new product development and introduction (NPDI), complex configuration management, enterprise change management, outsourced manufacturing, quality compliance and more. It extends enterprise PDM to drive PLM processes throughout a company, and its supply chain for collaboration across organizations including product development, operations, quality, purchasing, sales and marketing and other groups worldwide.
"We looked at other PLM/PDM products, but they would require ripping out our existing system," said Kevin Friske, Database Administrator at MiTek Corporation. "Aras EPLM would enable us to keep the software we already have and love while exposing product data in processes across the company."
Web-browser screens with a familiar Microsoft look and feel make the application easy to learn and use for everyone, and the flexible pure web architecture includes scalability, security and multi-site replication for deployments with users located around the world, the company said.
"We've been working with SolidWorks users for years and know that SolidWorks Enterprise PDM is by far the best CAD file manager for those designers. Companies are looking for a way to keep what's working and preserve their investment while they address cross-functional, enterprise-wide PLM business processes," said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. "So, we've taken our open source PLM solutions, included new out-of-the-box functionality that connects directly to EPDM, and packaged it all up to create a totally new commercial offering that's optimized for companies that run SolidWorks."
Aras EPLM is a commercial offering available from FISHER/UNITECH. Additional details, videos, screenshots and more can be found at www.aras-eplm.com.
