6 River Systems Selects Omnify Software for Seamless Communication with Contract Manufacturing Partner

 Empower PLM Delivers Intuitive BOM and ECO Management for Development of Next Generation Warehouse Robotic Platform

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Dec. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnify Software, a leading provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, today announces that 6 River Systems (6RS), a warehouse robotics startup, has selected and implemented the Empower PLM solution in order to replace paper-based processes for the development of their next generation warehouse robotic platform.  

6RS was ramping up a new Contract Manufacturer (CM) while developing the next generation of their robotic platform. They were using spreadsheets and shared file folders, making it difficult to share product information across internal and external teams. They needed a new system to document and control all product lifecycle information and ensure clear communication of information. The system also had to provide complete and detailed Bill of Materials (BOMs) and Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) to their CM.

“We participated in demonstrations of several Product Lifecycle Management systems and Omnify’s interface was significantly more intuitive than the other solutions,” stated Tim Higgins, Director of Hardware for 6 River Systems. “We were also impressed with the speed and security of the web hosted option.”

Omnify Empower is an easy to use, scalable, and configurable solution that is ideal for companies like 6RS. The system can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. 6RS was able to get up and running quickly with a hosted deployment. Their CM has secure access to the Empower PLM system and the intuitive user interface made it easy for the CM to understand the system and review BOMs and ECOs.

“We are seeing an increase in growing robotic companies like 6 River Systems adopting our technology to either replace paper-processes and systems that they are outgrowing or who want to start off with an electronic system to ensure best practices from the beginning,” stated Dave Solimini, Vice President of Sales for Omnify Software. “Either way, these customers reap the benefits of a centralized product record with automated processes early on and can be confident they have a PLM solution that will scale with them as they grow and provide the features they need for design and development of today’s complex products.”
