Aras announced the launch of a new solution designed specifically for companies that run Autodesk Vault with Inventor and AutoCAD. Aras VPLMTM for Autodesk Vault provides packaged functionality for corporate-wide PLM business processes, enabling global companies that run Autodesk software to improve product quality, accelerate time to market and achieve greater profitability.
Built on top of Autodesk Vault Professional, Aras VPLM extends the capabilities of Autodesk Vault to drive PLM processes throughout a company and its supply chain for collaboration across organizations including product development, operations, quality, purchasing, sales and marketing and other groups, the company says.
"We've been working with Autodesk users for years and know that Autodesk Vault is by far the best CAD file manager for designers using Inventor and AutoCAD. Companies are looking for a way to keep what's working and preserve their investment while they address cross-functional, enterprise-wide PLM business processes," said Peter Schroer, president of Aras. "So, we've taken our open source PLM solutions, included new out-of-the-box functionality that connects directly to Vault Professional and is optimized for those designers, and we packaged it all up to create a totally new commercial offering that provides companies that rely on Autodesk design software with an option they can run on their own servers and network."
In addition to Inventor and AutoCAD comprehensive multi-CAD capabilities include CATIA, NX, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, Solid Edge and more, as well as, EDA systems such as Allegro, OrCAD, DxDesigner/DxDatabook, PADS, Expedition, Altium, Zuken CR-5000 and others.
