PLM


Versatile Solutions for your Product Development

The More Specific the Better


Your Product at focus

During the development of a new product many processes, schedules and forms from the collaboration are linked both internally and externally. Everything that happens at this phase of the product lifecycle has an influence on the future development of your venture.

The documentation of the development process and the accurate creation of all important data within the production will determine success or failure. For this very reason it is extremely important to integrate a versatile product lifecycle management system into the process.

keytech fully understands the requirements of this business area. We support product developers, designers and engineers from their first idea through the entire process chain to the end of the product lifecycle.

In so doing we focus less on the theoretical definition or limitations of the term PLM, rather we concentrate on the secure integration of all actual accumulating processes and on helping the user gain more time for their actual tasks.

Our software provides a comprehensive product lifecycle management portfolio. Users increase profitability and productivity in every phase of the product lifecycle by linking with leading CAD and ERP systems. Despite the wealth of information the content display is always clear and convincing with a well thought-out outline.

With the product lifecycle software developed by us, companies guide and optimize the entire lifecycle of a product. All product-relevant data and documents are managed there and workflows are actively controlled and supported. All information about the development phases is always available and up-to-date for all departments involved in the project.

With keytech you have an easy introduction to a powerful PLM system that provides you with many different options.
