Business System Integration

Get Connected

One of the biggest challenges for businesses is to connect all of their multi-discipline distributed systems to one central location.

A PLM system must integrate with other systems, including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Authoring and documentation tools, such as CAD, and existing Product Data Management (PDM) systems.
