A New Type of PLM

What Makes Propel Different?

Propel is a new type of customer-focused and modern PLM software, helping you develop the best products for your customers. The company was started by cloud, PLM and manufacturing veterans, who spent the last several years working with the latest cloud technologies. While most PLM vendors have focused on helping manufacturers design hardware and hand changes off to manufacturing, the Propel team realized that there was still a huge gap translating product updates into customer adoption and market success.

Propel’s modern PLM software makes it easy for everyone to define, update and share product changes from the beginning of product development all the way to product usage. And because Propel is built on Salesforce, it’s highly configurable, reliable and scalable.

You don’t have to use Salesforce CRM to take advantage of Propel’s PLM capabilities. But if you do, you’ll be able to connect your products, customers, and services in one place, so you drive overall product and customer success.

If you deal with partners, customers and multiple departments to create products, we make your development simpler. Propel can help you intelligently roll out all types of product changes with your employees, partners and customers. Propel helps you collaborate on all types of product updates, so even the most demanding customers will love you and your products.

With Propel’s modern PLM software, manufacturing companies can:

  • Boost customer responsiveness and loyalty
  • Streamline product launches across engineering, partners, and channels
  • Improve product quality and customer satisfaction

Your Customers, Your Products and Your Innovation

As soon as you start engaging with a customer, Propel helps capture the most essential part of your products – what your customers want. From a community of ideas to specific customer requests, you can use our modern PLM software to determine how your products meet your customer requirements. Propel is seamlessly integrated to Salesforce, making it easy to share product updates with customers, partners and all employees involved in the development and launch process. And as you go through the product development process, you can also see how your product pipeline is shaping up and whether you’re on target to meet your revenue goals.

All Your Product Content

Propel’s flexible lifecycles allow you to manage all types of product content uniquely. Software can go through stages like Test, Alpha, Beta and Released, while Collateral and Specifications can go through stages like Draft, Approved, and Obsolete. Also, depending on the lifecycle phase, you can define how open or controlled you want the change process to be. Items in an Initial stage can be changed without any approval process, whereas a Datasheet in the Approved stage requires a revision change if a specific field needs to be updated.

Run Your Business from Anywhere

Being able to review, update, and change product information shouldn’t force you to be married to your laptop. Most traditional PLM software allows you to review and approve changes from your mobile device, but they’re limited to those capabilities. Creating items and BOMs, editing dashboards, or running reports isn’t possible. On the other hand, Propel is a modern PLM system, so you can do everything on any device, any browser, and any operating system. You can drill into dashboards, do Where Used, and view threaded discussions — all on your phone, and all without having to buy additional modules.

Extensible and Cohesive Solution

Propel offers an extensible solution, so you can easily configure the application to do what you want. You can capture prototype tests, tooling runs or test results – without having to custom extensions or code. With Propel, you can simply create new fields, new custom objects or tailored workflows. And everything can be done by yourself and is completely upgradeable.

With Propel, AMS Technologies can work much more closely with our customers to deliver innovative custom engineered solutions they need to succeed.
