After an extensive Proof of Concept, Heinen & Hopman became convinced of the added value of PRO.FILE in the projects and product lifecycle and decided to implement PRO.FILE company-wide with more than 250 users.
Reinier van Schaik - Heinen & Hopman
"We have had good contact with PLM Xpert for years. PRO.FILE provides us with structure, from engineering to service. After following the basic training and filling it with the data, it is now a way of working that is already well known in our organization."
About the implementation of PRO.FILE and its purpose
Until now, different subsystems have been used at Heinen & Hopman to manage all data and processes. They wanted to make a real digitization. Together with PLM Xpert, a pilot use case was delivered in a very short time with the following common thread. One source of truth and the reuse of technical information for all departments (including Engineering, Service and Spare parts). In addition, the integration of the various business applications was of great importance (including MS Outlook, MS Office, CAD and ERP for logistics and service).
