Poet selects Aras for enterprise product lifecycle management

By Aras | May 20, 2015

Aras, the next leader in enterprise product lifecycle management (PLM) software, recently announced that Poet, a world-leading producer of ethanol and other biorefined products, has selected the Aras PLM Solution Suite to drive product development and engineering best practices, improve processes and product tracking, and improve visibility into product-related data throughout the enterprise and extended supply chain. Poet will implement Aras as an integral part of its product development processes, tracking product and process data and ensuring visibility to all participants in the process.

Aras’s flexibility and ability to meet the requirements of Poet’s rapidly growing business were key drivers in the selection process. Working with Aras Partner EBD Advisors, Poet will implement multiple Aras solutions, including advanced product data management, configuration management, change management and BOM management.

“Making product information accessible where and when it is needed is critical to productivity and the success of our business,” said Greg Tryon, director of engineering at POET. “In the past we’ve used a variety of home-grown solutions and found that we couldn’t scale them as our business grew. With Aras we have an end-to-end solution that adjusts easily to fit our needs today and can scale up and scale out as our business needs change over time.”

“POET is an innovative company that is committed to community and continuous improvement. We look forward to working with them and fast-growing, forward-thinking companies like them, who are challenging the status quo as they develop the products of tomorrow,” said Peter Schroer, president of Aras.
