Casa Systems chooses Omnify Empower PLM software to manage engineering products
January 17, 2017 – Omnify Software, a provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, announced that Casa Systems implemented Omnify Empower PLM to replace the use of Excel spreadsheets for managing Bill of Materials (BOMs) and engineering changes.
Casa Systems was growing and they needed to find a solution to support formal engineering change control processes in order to eliminate issues they were experiencing with accountability, delays and lost information. Like most small companies, they wanted an intuitive and affordable product that would scale with them as they grew. But their primary requirement was that it integrated with their existing engineering design environment.
““I have previous experience with PLM systems so I knew what I was looking for, and after seeing a demo on Omnify Empower I knew it was exactly what we needed,” stated Kristin Couturier, Documentation Control Manager/ISO Administrator for Casa Systems. “We found the product to be very intuitive, allows easy access to necessary product information, and offers a price that is right for a small company.” Ms. Couturier added that, “the key selling point for us was that Empower PLM talks to our engineering design software, Mentor Graphics DXDesigner, and with other PLM systems it was an additional module at an additional cost.”
Working with their local Omnify Reseller, Trilogic, Casa implemented a hosted solution that was up and running in two days with everyone using the system fluently within a month. Casa now has automated BOM, Document and Engineering Change management, and is in the process of extending the usage of Empower PLM by creating a bi-directional interface with their Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) system, Microsoft Dynamics GP.
