ERP Integration

Reliable ERP integration with PRO.FILE – standard solution instead of custom programming

Engineers store product data from a 3D CAD system (e.g. AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, Creo, Solid Edge or Solidworks). Other departments, such as work preparation, purchasing, material planning and production, record data in an ERP system. PRO.FILE links these two solutions together. By integrating ERP and CAD and synchronizing the data from both environments, the foundation is laid for digitalization, the Product Data Backbone.

ERP Integration

Integrating CAD and ERP ensures that the work transfer proceeds quickly and smoothly.

Synchronize bill of materials and project structures automatically by integrating your PDM system with your ERP solution and thus put an end to the cumbersome manual entry of parts. Not only do you save time, but you can also provide the purchasing department with correct information as input for purchase orders. PRO.FILE integrates with the most prominent ERP systems. This ensures a seamless connection between departments such as administration, management, design department and production. Thanks in part to the open architecture PRO.FILE offers the possibility to exchange data in real-time between all departments.
