Fluidigm will utilize ProductCenter for management of its SolidWorks® product design data; process automation including electronic change notification (ECN) through ProductCenter Workflow; and engineering BOM data management with a link to the corporate ERP system. “With its ability to access accurate product data, ProductCenter should significantly improve Fluidigm’s current data management processes. We expect increased productivity as well as improved data integrity and reduced costs using ProductCenter,” states Brandon Ripley, Senior Electrical Engineer at Fluidigm. “ProductCenter and its reporting tools should streamline our ECN process and enhance our product release practices.”
ProductCenter’s integration to SolidWorks, its customizable Web Client interface and SofTech’s Customer Support organization contributed to Fluidigm’s selection.
