CONTACT Software and PROSTEP have set up a new collaboration. CONTACT Software and PROSTEP AG are pooling their skills in IT, processes and methods to offer suitable solutions for different collaboration scenarios.
The portfolio of both companies complements each other : Based on its open Elements platform, CONTACT Software develops solutions for the product development process, the digital transformation and the Internet of Things (IoT). As a vendor-neutral consulting and software company, PROSTEP contributes its experience and its standards-based solutions for the integration of PLM systems.
“Product lifecycle support of most PLM systems ends at the company's frontier, even though product development, manufacturing and operations are spread across global ecosystems today,” says CONTACT's CEO Karl-Heinz Zachries. “Our cooperation with PROSTEP paves the way for the end-to-end digitization of such processes”.
With their complementary offering, CONTACT and PROSTEP address demand for configurable collaboration solutions that can be integrated into existing CAx and PLM environments. Even in joint ventures or after mergers, they help companies remain capable of action.
“Cross-company collaboration requires openness and integration capability,” says Karsten Theis, CEO of PROSTEP AG. “CONTACT is a leading advocate of open system architectures, which makes it much easier to combine our technologies”.
