Omnify Software, a provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, today announces that it has formed a technology partnership with SiliconExpert, an electronics industry leader in providing component data and parts management software.
Keeping up with constantly changing product information and selecting the best parts for their design is critical for today’s Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The integration between SiliconExpert and Omnify Empower PLM supplies detailed part information to users when creating new, corporate parts/part numbers within Empower. The interface also maintains a direct link to SiliconExpert to deliver the latest component information on those parts such as lifecycle status, inventory, end of life, environmental compliance data, and multi-sourcing options. This helps customers reduce risk and avoid re-designs.
“We have chosen to partner with leading online content providers like SiliconExpert to help our customers keep up with the dynamic data associated with today’s complex supply chain,” stated Chuck Cimalore, chief technology officer for Omnify Software. “SiliconExpert understands the importance of interfacing with customer’s internal data management systems and their software platform provides easy methods for vendors to build integration modules.”
“SiliconExpert is excited to integrate with Omnify Empower PLM to provide the most comprehensive data to engineers,” says John Mastropietro, SiliconExpert’s channel partner manager. “With these two systems linked together, engineers and supply chain managers have a sole source solution to make informed decisions about their product lifecycle.”
The Omnify Software SiliconExpert interface is available to all Omnify Empower customers who are on the latest product release and have a SiliconExpert API license.
