Power Conversion Technology Firm Implements PLM Software

Software for Job Shops and Manufacturers

Software is used to Control Product Design, Change Management, and RoHS Compliance

FOSTER CITY, Calif.--Arena Solutions, a provider of on-demand product lifecycle management (PLM) software for manufacturers of all sizes, recently announced that ColdWatt, Inc. has implemented Arena PLM. 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.

ColdWatt's energy-efficient power conversion technologies surpass industry efficiency-level targets, enabling IT equipment vendors to decrease operational expenditures and help its server customers achieve their green IT goals. The company's use of Arena PLM has reportedly helped ColdWatt scale its business without significant increases in headcount or operating costs.

"After evaluating several competing PLM solutions, ColdWatt selected Arena for its cost, capabilities, and ease of use," said Joe Lamoreux, chief executive officer at ColdWatt, in a statement. "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."

Mr. Lamoreux went on to say that more than half of ColdWatt's worldwide employees are using the software. "Arena captures information we'd lose if we relied only on e-mail, telephone conversations, or spreadsheets," he says. "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 is said to offer companies significant advantages related to connectivity, in addition to cost savings, security, and 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, unlike with other PLM applications. As a result, "very little to no overhead" is required to support Arena PLM, particularly across multiple locations, the company says.

"ColdWatt is going up against some powerhouses in its market and winning because of their significant technological advancements," said Michael Topolovac, chief executive officer, Arena Solutions. "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."
