Through acquisitions, EAG was growing at lightning speed. However, its fast growth had caused some growing pains with how it managed its data. To solve this problem, EAG invested in Windchill, PTC’s product lifecycle management (PLM) software. Windchill ensured that users across EAG’s various locations are able to access the most up-to-date product data, from a variety of sources, in a consolidated product definition.
EAG was thrilled with how Windchill had made managing product data easier than ever. However, because PLM solutions are typically geared towards designers and engineers, EAG realized that downstream teams were still having some difficulty accessing the information that they needed. On top of that, because PLM solutions offer such a wide array of capabilities, their complexity requires new users to attend extensive training sessions. EAG needed a simpler way to get downstream teams the product data that they need.
