bom.com Online PLM Application Continues to Gain Momentum
Foster City, Calif., Jul 23 - bom.com today announced a diverse array of new customers, demonstrating the growing momentum of its online product lifecycle management (PLM) application among original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These customers, manufacturers of products ranging from wireless networks to optical transceivers to application servers, will use bom.com to streamline their development processes, collaborate more effectively with outsourced suppliers and gain greater control over changing product data.
Among the new customers choosing the zero-IT, cost-effective, rapidly deployed bom.com solution are: Danger, Inc. , creator of the award-winning Hiptop™ Wireless Solution; Phonex Broadband (www.phonex.com), the world's largest supplier of voice and data products over the powerline; Pine Photonics Communications, Inc., manufacturer of next-generation optical transceivers and amplification subsystems for the optical networking industry; Topspin Communications, manufacturer of data center virtualization products for the enterprise; and Wytec Incorporated, manufacturer of wireless communications systems that provide last-mile broadband access for subscribers who require voice and data communications services.
“We took a close look at client-server PLM solutions,” said Jamie Riotto, Topspin's vice president of engineering and operations. “After an exhaustive comparison of functionality, performance, and cost between those solutions and bom.com, we went with bom.com. It wasn't a difficult decision; we found bom.com offered equivalent functionality and performance for a fraction of the cost. As important to us, bom.com is deployed immediately, so we were using it within days of our decision.”
bom.com provides a centralized environment for managing product data, making it easy for OEMs, suppliers and outsourced partners to collaborate in real time around a single set of information - regardless of geographic location or IT infrastructure.

Other benefits include fewer costly mistakes, improved product quality and faster time to market. The cost-effective subscription model, which makes bom.com affordable for organizations of any size, means that bom.com customers realize rapid ROI.
