Solutions / Products
PRO.FILE is the Product Data Backbone that lets companies control and logically connect product data and documents across the enterprise. As a digitalization platform with all the necessary product and document lifecycle management capabilities, it consolidates PDM (product data management), PLM (product lifecycle management), and DMS (document management system) into a single system that can be integrated with every major M/ECAD and ERP system.
PRO.CEED builds on the PRO.FILE Product Data Backbone and enables the application-oriented implementation of digital business processes in product and document lifecycle management. It uses preconfigured best practice application packages to do away with lengthy projects and conveniently give companies digital processes in, for example, their design departments, change order management, risk management, or contract management.
PROOM is the exchange platform for technical companies: easy to use, controlled, and secure. Email attachments are not the right place for relevant and confidential documents. With PROOM, they can be exchanged in a confidential and controlled manner. It allows companies to regain control over the sending of their files by enabling them to share data in the cloud using virtual project rooms.
