The leading product suite for PLM system integration

Would you like to integrate a better flow of information between systems in your PLM landscape? Would you like to modernise your outdated PLM solution without losing information? Do you work closely together with external development partners in your PLM processes?

PROSTEP's integration solution OpenPDM will help you to exchange your PLM information between systems without losing information and at the right time. OpenPDM offers you connectivity to the systems of the PLM world. You benefit from our proven and flexible processes plus a wealth of expert experience for implementing your integration and migration tasks.

OpenPDM is prepared for hybrid and heterogeneous architectures. Whether your system is old or modern, for on-premises or cloud architectures and large or small data quantities, we support you in establishing the continuous digital thread.

  • Continuous PLM processes
    OpenPDM INTEGRATE allows your PLM data to flow and ensures continuous business processes beyond system limits. For example, you can make data from different areas of the company available to various specialist departments in the system used by each department, and always up to date.
  • Unlimited scalability
    Limitless scalability makes OpenPDM INTEGRATE the ideal PLM integration platform for companies of any type or size. Thanks to excellent configuration options, it can be adapted easily and flexibly to the business processes of your specific company.
  • Traceable processes
    Central control over a cockpit featuring intuitive operation simplifies control and monitoring of processes and makes it possible to trace them at any time. Reports that can be generated at the click of a button provide support for logging of process workflows.
  • Low administrative overhead
    The stability and reliability of the software ensure that applications operate smoothly while reducing the overhead for system administration. Using the official interface of the connected systems also ensures good update capability with minimal effort.
  • Fast ROI (Return on Investment)
    In comparison to project-specific solutions, OpenPDM INTEGRATE has pre-installed Business Logic. This makes for a short implementation phase leading quickly to productive use of the solution.
  • High investment protection
    The neutral and generic data model makes it very easy to expand the system while ensuring that the expanded system still works properly after updates. The continuous upkeep and ongoing development of the software also ensures a high level of investment protection.
