Launch innovative products faster on the only scalable platform that can successfully consolidate all your product records into a single unified location. Make quick decisions with the context you need while ensuring compliance.
To develop and launch the best products in today's digital age, you need a flexible and scalable PLM solution that lives in the cloud. Having one source of product truth that is contextually collaborative with complete data visibility speeds time to market, boosts customer satisfaction and increases profit margins.
Get all the capabilities your design and engineering teams need to develop and launch new products
Provide your team with a modern approach to PLM that allows them to efficiently create bills of materials, approve manufacturer lists, and incorporate design files. Streamline engineering change orders using criteria-based approvers and compare changes with redlined BOMs. A full suite of capabilities, such as project management and global where-used and parametric searches, is fully integrated with the platform.
Facilitate communication and feedback between your entire value chain
Enterprises can better prioritize and plan for success when they can leverage the data-driven insights coming directly from all involved teams — engineering, sales, marketing, customer success, contract manufacturers, partners, and customers. Product issues can be tracked easily and quickly, thereby ensuring product quality with a faster go-to-market. Quality processes are closely knit with the design processes, which helps the engineering and development teams to be agile while ensuring the products comply with the regulatory framework.
Incorporate quality in the design phase to get to market faster while ensuring compliance
Ensuring product compliance is vital throughout the design and production phases. However, once the product is in the hands of the customer, it is equally important to monitor customer complaints and track quality issues in order to close the loop between engineering, manufacturing, sales, and service. PLM on Propel helps companies maintain detailed, time-stamped, historical information of changes in product versions to ensure audit trails are intact. It also helps reduce the risk of fines, delays, and lost sales due to non-compliance.
Free your team up to focus on what they do best and improve efficiency
Leading research says that only 39% of employees spend their time actually performing their primary job. Propel solves this problem by helping companies improve operational efficiency, reduce infrastructure costs, improve product quality, and accelerate time to market, which ultimately drives increased throughput. Consolidating all product records — communications, workflows, designs, and documents — in a single unified location on a scalable PLM platform increases overall employee productivity. Consolidation and contextual collaboration eliminates the need to open multiple tools or dig through emails to find the latest project updates and design files. This allows teams to search, access, and reuse data easily and focus on product innovation.
Incorporate feedback earlier in the design phase and conduct early manufacturing testing
Get clear visibility into product costs during development phases. On Propel, model a forward-looking view of associated product costs, providing a holistic view of the product lifecycle to teams like procurement and manufacturing so that they can find product materials and parts that are durable and cost-effective. These teams can set real-time dashboards or schedule reports while designs are being developed and provide their valuable feedback and make recommendations to help reduce costs later — impossible if product data resides in disparate and siloed systems. Prevent under- or over-buying materials with a comprehensive database that shows which parts can be reused, and prevents them from ordering duplicate parts or missing out on bulk pricing.
Manage approvals, access reports and communicate with team members - all from your phone.
Propel's platform eliminates the need for complex and cumbersome security measures like setting up VPN access or maintaining on-premise installations. Instead, teams can use their unique credentials to securely log in from any device, even their mobile phone. Notifications allow teams to safely untether themselves from the office and interact with other team members or clients without worrying about missing important updates. They can answer questions on the fly to get products moving faster, eliminating bottlenecks.
“Propel gives flexibility and maturity to product development. The flexibility to do things like when we were a young, scrappy startup and the maturity in the later stages during prototypes and production, all while making sure the right set of eyes are on the product. Propel is the best of both worlds.”
Accelerate time to market and respond to ever-changing market conditions faster than competitors with complete data visibility, company-wide collaboration, integrated analytics, and access control. Make informed business decisions and break existing functional silos by connecting people, systems, and processes.
Reduce development timelines with greater flexibility, visibility, and productivity with our modern approach to bills of materials. Compare revisions and retain multiple work streams without breaking workflow.
Reduce iterations and change order cycle times by efficiently managing your engineering change orders. Configure the right approval workflows and manage product updates across the entire value chain. Propel’s cloud-based platform promises you the required agility, flexibility, and configurability to easily review and approve workflows from your phone, tablet, or laptop.
Reduce development timelines with greater flexibility, visibility, and productivity when comparing and managing product versions. Compare revisions and retain multiple work streams in parallel without breaking workflow. Graphically redline any product attribute including BOMs, pricing, product catalog attributes, and configuration rules to precisely identify what changed and where.
Accelerate time to market, reduce errors, and bolster innovation by integrating Propel’s platform with any CAD system. Leverage Propel’s platform for real-time collaboration, automatic part creation, and seamless 3D CAD visualization with any on-premise or cloud-based CAD system to create parts, BOMs, and change orders.
Ensure compliance of items according to regulatory and environmental specifications like RoHS, WEEE, REACH, China RoHS, JEDEC, Japanese Green Initiative, and Conflict Minerals standards.
Manage and fast-track project completion timelines with effective collaboration and complete data visibility. Manage project schedules by assigning tasks and notifying relevant users. Quickly collaborate with internal teams, suppliers, and contract manufacturers to make intelligent business decisions. Fast-track projects by determining the exact causes of delays and downtimes.
Decrease costs and deliver consistent profits with more efficient design, supply chain optimization, and preventive maintenance. Quickly determine product viability as well as associated profit margins by efficiently tracking, managing, and analyzing material, prototype, labor, maintenance, production, and supply chain costs.
Meet local markets' standards and comply with different regulatory requirements to compete and sell globally. Manage configurations, regulatory requirements, and distribution rules based on the product SKU or GTIN. Guarantee your product is sold in worldwide markets by ensuring compliance with local market requirements.
Manage costs using a system that was purpose-built with BOM structure, reporting, and analytics capabilities. Store and analyze the cost information gathered from each distributor and contract manufacturer. Roll it up on a BOM to compare costs across different products and time periods.
