Earlier today I had a follow up conversation and demo of Aras PLM software with Marc Lind. To net it out, I asked Marc why users would buy Aras Software instead of one of their vertically integrated competitors such as Enovia, Teamcenter, or Windchill? Marc replied with three main reasons:
- The software works. It’s reliable, it’s functionally robust, implementations are easier, users can see results faster, and its design promotes much faster upgrades to new versions.
- The economics of the business model are so compelling. The ROI proves it.
- Aras Innovator is the platform of the future, in terms of scalability, ability to design release independent custom processes, upgrades, and flexibility, and it’s cloud ready.
You will have to see for yourself — the company has no salesmen, because the downloads are free. Their website contains lots of good info.
