August Electronics Selects Omnify Software for BOM and Change Management

Empower PLM Gives Electronic Manufacturing Services Provider a Competitive Advantage

TEWKSBURY, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2014) -  Omnify Software, a leading provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, today unveils its latest Empower PLM application story featuring August Electronics, a leading Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. August Electronics adopted the Empower PLM solution in order to electronically manage Bill of Materials (BOMs), engineering changes and documents and improve communication with their customers.

As an EMS provider, August Electronics receives product/BOM information from customers in various formats including emails, spreadsheets and even phone calls. Without an electronic system in place to track and manage this information, August Electronics would run into issues with duplicate data and wasted time spent searching for information.

The company set out to find a software solution to electronically manage their BOMs, keep track of Engineering Change history, provide document revision control and integrate with their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. August Electronics selected the Empower PLM solution from Omnify Software based on a recommendation from their ERP vendor,
Aptean Intuitive ERP Omnify Empower offered exactly what they needed for managing customer product information and for integrating with their Intuitive ERP system.

"Our emphasis on quality, customer focus and innovative technology is what provides our customers with significant advantages in the marketplace," said Tanya Korenda, General Manager for August Electronics. "Adopting Omnify Empower to improve our development processes is another verification of our focus on consistently delivering high quality products and services that meet our customer's needs."

"EMS providers face similar issues as OEMs with disparate systems and lack of formal change tracking and communication. When you combine this with the additional challenge of receiving BOMs and documents from customers in various formats, the need for a PLM system becomes clear," stated Chuck Cimalore, Chief Technology Officer for Omnify Software. "We are now seeing an increasing number of forward-thinking EMS providers like August Electronics adopt the Empower solution within their organization as they realize streamlined communication and collaboration processes can provide their customers and suppliers with the level of products and services they demand."
