“We considered and even tried several PLM options, but in the end selected Aras and Minerva,” said Stefan Lundgren, Hardware Team Leader at CPAC Systems AB. “The ability for us to download Aras free of charge, get familiar with it and understand the full capabilities of the product was essential for us to mitigate risk.”
“CPAC is a great example of the power of an open PLM platform,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras.
