Just a few months ago Solair announced the launch of its White Label PLM, thecloud-basedPLM for indirect sale to software houses and VARs that they can rebrand and sell as an innovative and scalable PLM solution to their own customer base. The news was widely reported on a global level and a few days ago an agreement was reached with the Japanese multi-CAD VAR CCUBE who has chosen the White Label PLM to expand its products to offer its customers the most innovative and technologically advanced PLM on the market.
CCUBE is a VAR that offers engineering services and CAD/CAM solutions to manufacturing companies. It did not have a PLM solution in its portfolio and the agreement with Solair was met with instant interest for two reasons: the White Label PLM is a ready to use solution that can be resold with the CCUBE brand and developed and customised to meet specific customer needs (thus avoiding long development times and the use of specialised resources that are necessary to create a PLM), and secondly because it is a cloud-based solution.
In particular CCUBE saw that the agreement with Solair will enable them to develop their business in the field of the IoT. The Japanese VAR will start supplying a PLM solution to manage information and data produced during product development. The company is also planning to manage these products once they are released in the field by using Solair’s Internet of Things technology.
CCUBE aims to cover all stages of product lifecycle from design to withdrawal from the market.
“The White Label PLM is the solution for companies looking for a PLM that is scalable, easy to use, easy to implement and configure in order to satisfy the particular needs of their customers” explains Tom Davis, CEO of Solair. “It is innovative because it is cloud-based and can be accessed from anywhere and from any device. It was specifically developed to use the most modern software architecture and was designed to be available in a SaaS model. All the investment in time and resources was made by Solair: CCUBE will just simply have to rebrand it and customise it where necessary to create tailor-made solutions for their customers quickly and easily. Looking to the world of the IoT is also important for CCUBE because its customers operate in the manufacturing industry: companies that produce and manage products situated in various locations can now offer better services and have an economic as well as competitive advantage thanks to the Internet of Things. This is the gateway to the future for companies producing and/or managing products. The technology developed by Solair is what makes this change possible in a quick and easy way. CCUBE is in a really advantageous position because IoT features developed by Solair can be activated on the same platform used by the White Label PLM.”
