Ordering

Modern ECAD systems are not isolated solutions. Deep integration into the customer’s IT infrastructure makes it possible to transfer automatically generated bills of materials – for quotations and material procurement – into existing ERP systems.
Ideally, an engineering solution should therefore not only include standardised interfaces to the market-leading ERP, PDM and PLM systems, but also tools for the individual integration of the software into the customer’s IT system landscape.

Our solutions

  • Integration of Eplan data into existing ERP, PDM and PLM system landscapes
  • More transparency in the product development process
