PDXpert streamlines PLM functionalities—such as bill of materials (BOM), revision control and change management into lightweight processes with immediate benefits. There is a unique manner in which Active Sensing allows organizations to leverage the benefits of PDXpert.

“We were the first PLM vendor that saw PDX data exchange as an easy way to move product data from smaller product design companies to their contract manufacturers,” states Lodha. The company has published PDXplorer for its customers’ supply chain in 2004, and has kept it current with new capabilities like BOM comparisons. “It’s become an essential supply chain tool. I’ve been pleased that it’s gained such popularity with customers of other PLM systems,” says Lodha. Active Sensing has been receiving similar accolades from many sectors for simplifying the PLM processes in an easy to use and affordable manner. “Our mantra has always been to optimize the complete experience, and this is reflected in our product decisions,” concludes Lodha.
