ANDOVER, Mass. – Aras, which provides the most powerful low-code application platform to design, build, and operate complex products, announced that Kyocera Unimerco is using Aras Innovator to manage data, information, and business processes for product lifecycle management (PLM).
Kyocera Unimerco, headquartered in Denmark, supports global sales with manufacturing facilities in Denmark, the UK, the USA, and Lithuania. Full visibility and traceability of product data is essential to managing the manufacturing and supply chain operations supporting their diverse line of precision cutting tools for metalworking, woodworking, and composite materials.
As the company moved to modernize manufacturing and software infrastructure, it recognized the need to evaluate new approaches to managing its product lifecycle management program.
Kyocera evaluated new PLM software solutions that would enable easier change management, reduce the amount of time spent on the product review process, and decrease the number of errors in document collaboration and management processes.
After reviewing different options, the company selected the Aras Innovator platform to better support version control, traceability, and engineering change management and has benefitted from:
- Increased efficiency in product-related business processes.
- Improved access to data, documentation, and product information for all stakeholders.
- The ability to customize and modify software for easier management.
Claus Skallerup, IT director, Kyocera Unimerco, said: “Aras Innovator is more than just an enterprise application. Innovator is open and flexible, enabling companies like ours to configure it to match our needs, which was a key factor in our choice. There is a dedicated community where the culture is welcoming, and everybody is genuinely interested in contributing to making Innovator even better. It was the right choice for us in every way. The best thing about Aras is the ability to create whatever you can imagine. That’s the true value of the platform.”
Roque Martin, CEO, of Aras, said: “Companies like Kyocera Unimerco must manage meticulous manufacturing processes for the complex products they provide. Version control problems can lead to expensive errors, so the Aras Innovator was a natural fit to help them streamline processes. Our configurable platform gives manufacturers the visibility they need to deliver error-free products to their customers.”
