ColdWatt Chooses Arena PLM to Help Deliver Disruptive Technology and Penetrate Deep-rooted Competiti
Foster City, Calif., Dec 5 - Arena Solutions, the leading provider of on-demand product lifecycle management (PLM) software for manufacturers of all sizes, today announced that ColdWatt, Inc. has implemented Arena PLM as its backbone for delivering the company
ColdWatt, a manufacturer of high density, innovative power solutions for the computing, networking, storage and telecommunications markets, uses Arena PLM to control its entire product record, and manage engineering change, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliance, testing and manufacturing processes. Using Arena helped ColdWatt scale its business without significant increases in headcount or operating costs. The company’s energy-efficient power conversion solutions, that surpass industry efficiency-level targets, enable IT equipment vendors to decrease operational expenditures and help its server customers achieve their green IT goals.
“After evaluating several competing PLM solutions, ColdWatt selected Arena for its cost, capabilities and ease of use. Arena is an excellent tool that helps us demonstrate complete control over our entire product record and has definitely helped us as we grow our business quickly,” said Joe Lamoreux, chief executive officer at ColdWatt. “More than half of our worldwide employees—from Texas to Bangalore, India, to Shenzhen, China—are using the software. Arena captures information we’d lose if we relied only on e-mail, telephone conversations or spreadsheets. Now we can get to our information any time from an Internet browser anywhere in the world.”
Because Arena PLM is a web native, on-demand (SaaS) application, it offers companies significant advantages related to connectivity, in addition to cost savings, security, ease of implementation and use. All data is hosted by Arena, so customers need not maintain servers in multiple locations or an IT support staff for the application, the way they would with other PLM applications. As a result, it takes very little to no overhead to support Arena PLM, particularly across multiple locations.
“ColdWatt is going up against some powerhouses in its market and winning because of their significant technological advancements. They are an agent of change and we’re delighted they have been able to confidently count on the Arena PLM infrastructure and keep marching in front of the pack to bring real disruptive change to their industry,” said Michael Topolovac, chief executive officer, Arena Solutions.
