When selecting a PLM system it’s easy to get distracted by the ‘bells & whistles’. By ‘bells & whistles’ I mean those cute little features and functions that look great – and seem very appealing - but you never end up actually needing or using.
Here at WhichPLM we pride ourselves in being impartial. Since our inception we have remained unbiased and informative. Our passion is to educate, and not to coerce; to report, and not to influence.
We post the most up-to-date articles from a host of contributors – brands, vendors and advisors alike. And not only do we report exclusively upon industry events, but we also report upon suppliers. We are often approached by software vendors eager for a thorough evaluation of their system, and on the other side of the coin, by prospective PLM or 3D customers eager to obtain exclusive reviews of these very vendors. Knowing the maturity of a supplier’s solution is just as important for a prospective customer as for the suppliers themselves.
Our ethical stance shapes the processes we use to evaluate suppliers. A WhichPLM Supplier Evaluation is unlike any other vendor profile, PLM benchmark or review. Our research methods are exhaustive and truly expert, and our conclusions independent, unbiased, and informed by 30 years of hands-on PDM, CPM & PLM experience.
Below you’ll find the most up-to-date 3D & PLM vendor comparisons, in the form of deep-dive 3D & PLM Evaluations.
