Integrated Material Management Software

Integrated Material Management Software

Enable material-aware product design and material steering across your business.

Integrated Material Management Software

As consumers demand for smarter, stronger, cost efficient, more functional and more sustainable products, the management of material data, properties and processes becomes a vital objective.

Our applications help you manage material data and substance compliance information throughout the product lifecycle. We empower you to design innovative products with the material in mind. The solution links the life cycle of your material data with the life cycle of your product (PLM).

Our Integrated Material Management (IMM) transforms material data into true product intelligence, so you can make smarter decisions about materials. 

Accompanying services, including workshops, starting from implementation to hosting or fully managed services, ensure you get the most effective solution based on your need.

Key Features

Integrate material & compliance management with product life cycle management

Link the life cycle of your material data with the life cycle of your product (PLM). Make smarter decisions about materials and compliance early in the product lifecycle.

Leverage Cloud Technology

Consume as a cloud service or through local deployment, use through mobile devices or on your desktop. The user interface is intuitive and clean.

Benefit from Scalability and easy Integration

Integrate with supplier portals, ERP, PLM or CAD Systems to enable seamless workflows and lean process support across functions.

Collaborate across your organization and value chain

Leverage workflow automation and integrations to share material and compliance information in a defined manner within and beyond your organization.

What our clients say

With a single source for material data, we now spend less time searching for the right materials. Our materials are now directly accessible from the design and simulation tools and easy to find. We can ensure to have the same, reliable material information in all steps of the PLM process and respect compliance and resource efficiency already in the MCAD / ECAD environment. The advantages are so obvious that it’s nearly absurd to spell them out.
