SoftExpert PLM is a software for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). It enables companies to manage the entire lifecycle of a product efficiently and cost-effectively, from conception, design and manufacture, through service and disposal, in an affordable, easy-to-use, and web-based interface.
SoftExpert PLM software can leverage enterprise-wide data to help managers make better decisions. It increases the optimization of every step of the product lifecycle, creating higher quality products, launching new products in less time and at a lower cost, and maximizing profits.
The solution provides a complete product data management tool. It allows users to manage several process aspects, such as design, manufacturing, purchasing, quality/test, and service aspects of product records. Product data can be defined by any product object (parts/components, documents, Bill of Material [BOM], machines/instruments, costs, characteristics, etc.). SoftExpert PLM software manages all product revisions and provides a complete audit trail detailing all historical changes.
With SoftExpert software for Product Lifecycle Management, companies can promote tight integration with their ERP system and CAD software, providing timely and transparent access to the most important product information (assemblies, parts, drawings, etc.), tracking engineering changes, and maintaining the appropriate relationships between the CAD design objects and the product structure. IT managers can take advantage of their current and future CAD tools without having to make sacrifices by committing to a single CAD system.
SoftExpert PLM considers risk management, product quality (including FMEA and SPC tools), process management, reliability, project management, change management, supplier management and document management as a single and unified solution, significantly integrated into the product’s definition and lifecycle.

Traditionally when enterprise professionals discussed the ROI of an investment, they were mostly thinking of the "financial" benefits. Today, organizations must also consider the "non-financial" benefits of an investment.
Financial Benefits include impacts on the organization's budget and finances, e.g., reduced costs or increased revenues.
Non-Financial Benefits are the so-called "intangible", "soft" or "unquantifiable" benefits of an investment. Unlike financial returns, there may be no widely-accepted metrics for organizations to apply. However, the Softexpert solutions present undeniable potential for producing positive impacts on business performance and mission results. These include improved customer satisfaction, more precise information and a shorter cycle time.
When calculating the benefits offered by PLM, it is important to include both revenue growth and cost reduction. While cost savings are often calculated, many companies choose to reinvest reduced product development costs in product innovation and product development. This provides additional investment for top-line, profitable growth.
Aberdeen research shows that companies that leverage Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) technologies are recognizing significant top- and bottom-line benefits, such as increased product revenue (19% on average), decreasing product cost (15% on average) and reduced development costs (16% on average).
