Press Release:


ProductCenter PLM is the Global Business Solution, Phase One Implementation Completed


LOWELL, Mass. — February 19, 2008 — SofTech, Inc., a proven provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced that its ProductCenter™ PLM solution has been deployed at several Cryogenic Industries (CI) companies, including Cryoquip, ACD, Cosmodyne and Wittemann. The Cryogenic Industries group of companies are industry leaders in cryogenic gas processing and transfer equipment.

Before ProductCenter was implemented, product data was managed by standard network technology where various drives were utilized to store data and rights were granted according to business division. There were many costly disadvantages to this data management structure in terms of time, productivity, and lack of controls. Upon recognition of how these practices were impeding the progress of the business as a whole, support for a PLM solution search took shape. “After completion of a successful pilot, ProductCenter PLM was ultimately selected for SofTech’s support and cooperation as well as the performance and flexibility of the application,” states Ted Pardo Jr., Manager of Information Technology at Cryoquip and ProductCenter Project Lead for Cryogenic Industries.

Phase one of the ProductCenter implementation began with the migration of all Engineering related data into a centralized environment. ProductCenter provided immediate results with improved product data management, and streamlined global data access and collaboration across the Cryogenic enterprise. “ProductCenter was implemented to control Cryogenic’s intellectual property (IP) which is documented through our product engineering drawings. ProductCenter has allowed us to inject a measure of credibility and reliability into our IP that we had not experienced before. One might say that if it’s not in ProductCenter then we don’t need it,” explains Pardo.

ProductCenter continues to be expanded with a recent deployment to an engineering design services group based in India. Project rollout plans for follow-on phases include improved business operations and process improvements using the ProductCenter Workflow module followed by an integration to the corporate ERP system. Pardo adds, “We are looking to ProductCenter to increase visibility, accessibility and security. Cryogenic Industries views ProductCenter not just as an Engineering solution but as a global business solution that proves to be a tremendous benefit to our company’s success.”
