Ares Provides Oracle PLM for Network Security Company Lanner

Ares International Corp. recently helped Lanner Electronics Inc. to successfully introduced Oracle Agile PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) to improve Lanner's R&D management flow efficiency.

Transformed from provider of industrial PC (IPC) to network security platform vertical application, Lanner needs to construct a R&D flow and improve its R&D collaboration ability. As the key partner of Oracle in Taiwan and experienced in introducing Agile PLM to various Taiwan-based enterprises, Ares International Corp. was chosen by Lanner to implement Oracle Agile PLM.

The modules that Ares introduced for Lanner are PC (Product Collaboration) and AutoVue. PC provides product record, new/changed information, management, coordination and communications for the overall supply chain while enabling Lanner to define R&D and manage product changes, with functions such as product positioning, change coordination, copy management, manufacturer management, compound task system, product rotation, information security access control, smart work flow and automation change management.

Lanner can use AutoVue to enable employee, client and partner to use its digital asset, thereby pushing innovation, improving revenues and efficiency while maximizing productivity. The imbedded real-time collaboration function of AutoVue helps to connect global employees, saving manual input time and effort while achieving inspection, audit and digital file labeling. This helps to lower travel, energy and time costs while improving work efficiency. Additionally, the information security protection function of AutoVue helps Lanner to protect confidential documents and prevent intellectual property right damages.

Shuen-De, Tzeng (transliterated from Chinese), assistant vice president of Lanner, indicated Ares helped Lanner to integrate Oracle Agile PLM with existing systems such as ERP with concrete project goal, solid commitment from both parties and professional educational training.

After the system successfully went live, Lanner was impressed with the functions of Oracle Agile PLM and the services provided by Ares—Lanner sees its information security risk lowered, R&D data more correct, KM (knowledge management) successful as the management of its product lifecycles are strengthened and well controlled.

Founded in 1986 and publicly listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange since 2003, Lanner Electronics Inc. is an ISO 9001-certified designer and manufacturer of reliable, frontline network security, network video and embedded computing platforms. The company now has R&D centers in Taipei and Beijing, China while marketing representative offices are set up in China and the US.
