Arena Forges Strategic Partnership with Acumatica
Foster City, Calif., October 2, 2019 – Arena, the leading provider of cloud-based product development solutions for high tech, consumer electronics, and medical device industries, today announced a significant new partnership with Acumatica, the world’s fastest-growing cloud ERP company. The integration from Arena to Acumatica will extend an organization’s end-to-end cloud environment to help design, produce, and deliver innovative products rapidly.
With Arena’s product lifecycle management (PLM) and quality management (QMS) solutions, customers can accelerate new product launches and eliminate costly errors caused by manually entering information in ERP. This gives engineering, quality, and manufacturing teams a completely connected approach throughout new product development and introduction.
“This is an tremendous opportunity for discrete manufacturing companies to integrate leading PLM and ERP cloud solutions to improve their product realization processes,” said Mark Hudson, VP of Channel for Arena. “Our customers operate globally with distributed teams and supply chains and their success depends on removing obstacles that slow design and production of high-quality products.”
Streamlining the passage of product information from PLM to ERP the instant it is approved by cross-functional teams gives companies a strategic advantage to continually innovate and deliver solutions fast. Once the design of a new product is approved in Arena PLM, all part and assembly information will be automatically passed to Acumatica Cloud ERP, giving procurement and production teams immediate and accurate product record access to speed their planning and manufacturing processes.
“With the integration of Acumatica Cloud ERP and Arena PLM, we will give our customers the best product development and production approach,” said Christian Lindberg, VP Partner Solutions at Acumatica. “Through leading edge technology and best-in-class business functionality, Acumatica continues to deliver unparalleled value to small and midmarket organizations. With Arena’s deep knowledge and expertise in PLM, this partnership should prove to be extremely valuable for our current and future customers. The partnership aligns with our core strategy on many fronts and can help provide our mutual customers with greater insight to make more informed decisions across the enterprise.”
