Arena grows new business 19% in 2011

In addition to 2011’s strong subscription and renewal numbers, Arena fulfilled its commitment to expand the company by building out its software, infrastructure and partner community. One notable development was the launch of PDXViewer—a free, cloud-based app for viewing PDX files from any PLM or PDM system. PDXViewer displays PDX build packages from any PLM system, and makes BOM data available to a much wider audience.

According to Steve Chalgren, vice president of product management and strategy, “PDXViewer presents BOM data in an easily navigable format that keeps the context of the BOM and includes all of the peripheral information like AML and AVL. Because so many business systems are configured with a PDX output option, we are attracting a wide, varied audience with this new product, and the response has been enthusiastic. As we continue to develop new features for PDXViewer that will set it apart from other viewers out there, we expect this to continue.”

Also in Q4, Arena surpassed its 99.5% service level agreement with 100% scheduled uptime in Q4 2011 and a continued focus on delivering the most secure and reliable collaborative BOM and change management solution available.
