High tech supply
In high-tech supply, not only the product itself is important, but also the customer experience. Customers are increasingly demanding from their partners. There are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of in emerging and growing markets. And that requires sharp strategic choices and greater pressure to perform.
With efficient partnerships within your organization you create profitable and advanced products that are really important to your customers. No matter how large your organization is: with the right systems you ensure that everyone is aware of the correct parts lists, production data and quality data. For example, you speed up product launches and prototyping.
Industrial mechanical engineering
Industrial machines are more complex than ever. At the same time, the competitive market demands innovation. We help you create complex industrial machines that exceed your customers’ expectations. Because a streamlined process is indispensable for consistency quality.
Our integrated solutions help you meet the individual needs of customers in various markets. Whether it concerns customization, regulations or globalization. You produce new machines faster, more efficiently and at lower production costs. In short: improved processes that allow you to achieve superior performance.
Streamline processes, reduce costs and ensure consistent quality with our PLM solutions for the medical devices and implants market. Keeps a grip on the total life cycle of the product: from idea to realization and use. In addition, focus on technical efficiency and avoid costly errors and quality problems.
Creating smart medical devices that include software and electronics can be quite a challenge. The correct information for all engineering teams within the design process is therefore crucial. Documenting fundamental information helps speed up your processes.

Mapping your challenge
There are numerous challenges in the manufacturing industry. For example, products are more complicated and production is outsourced to other countries. This makes it more difficult to keep communicating about the details. Some organizations have a rich history of generation-old procedures that require innovation due to technical developments. In addition, customers are demanding increasingly faster delivery times and large orders do not always yield enough returns.
Every organization has its own reason for orienting towards PLM software or services. As a first step, we therefore go back to why a PLM-related solution ended up on the map. Which barriers can we remove in the process? And against what budget, what timing and other expectations?
Outlining our strategy
Now that the reason for innovation is clear, we delve deeper into the challenge and assemble a team of specialists. Even before we present a tailor-made demo, we are happy to give substance to our partnership by drawing up the optimal PLM strategy for your organization. Here we weigh up the pros and cons of different PLM software and services. The result of this step? The optimal tailor-made solution to streamline your processes.
Among other things, we map out the size of the total project. We zoom in on specific barriers and also look at the breadth of the issue. We also define which departments will be affected by the project and what the impact will be on the different employees of those divisions. Then we validate our findings: does our proposed route match your expectations?
From strategy to details
Even before we finally start working together, our pre-sales team will work out a plan for you. In this we weigh up how the PLM project fits within your organization. Which implementation best suits your processes? What are the investments? And what are the expected returns?
As partners, we coordinate the most suitable cooperation model. You may have already worked out the ideal product development processes or we may need to give you a helping hand. We challenge you on business issues and give direction to the various PLM solutions, but we will mainly propose good practices where appropriate. Transparency in the budget, investment and realization time are the basis of our cooperation.
Matching with the right solution
Now that we know exactly what you need and what the scope of the project is, we match it with the products on the market. Our product specialists then select the PLM software that best suits your issue and create a tailor-made demo.
Short iterations, a self-organizing team, flexibility as soon as you as a customer have different priorities. We are very well organized and work towards fast delivery of functional PLM building blocks. Early coordination with the business and presentation to your key-user team provide extra support. In addition to a good PLM solution, we also take care of the management of your PLM configuration.
