FISHER/UNITECH to Provide Aras Enterprise PLM Software

FISHER/UNITECH, an engineering software, hardware and services provider, will offer Aras Enterprise PLM (Aras EPLM), an out-of-the-box software solution designed exclusively for companies running SolidWorks®. Built on top of SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, Aras EPLM enables global companies to improve product quality, accelerate time to market and achieve greater profitability. Aras® is the leading provider of enterprise open source product lifecycle management solutions. 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 software is a world-class PLM solution that will give these companies a much better choice than they currently have from traditional vendors in the industry. We look forward to sharing this very exciting offering with our customers.”

Aras EPLM is 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 & 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 highly flexible pure web architecture includes powerful scalability, robust security and multi-site replication for deployments with users located around the world.

“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.”
