Denver, Colo.—August 22, 2014—Active Sensing, Inc. (ASI) was recognized by Business-Software.com as a leading product lifecycle management (PLM) software vendor for its PDXpert product lifecycle management software. The Top 10 Product Lifecycle Management Software Report places PDXpert PLM affordability ahead of all other PLM solutions, including public cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) software, noting that a “full system starts at $49/user/month”. (With volume discounts, subscriptions can be as low as $20/user/month.) As the only Top 10 PLM with a choice of subscription or perpetual licenses, PDXpert PLM allows companies to select the best financial and administrative model for their needs.
The Top 10 Report also identifies PDXpert PLM as one of only five solutions that supports both on-site and off-site installation. Customers can easily move PDXpert from an internal server to private cloud, change hosting providers or choose to bring the server back on site. According to the report, PDXpert software’s proven on-site or private cloud deployment provides the lowest cost over time, as well as the most control over security, performance, configuration and upgrades. And its forward secrecy encryption is generally acknowledged as more secure than typical SaaS providers’ TLS/SSL static certificates.
PDXpert software includes standard PLM features like part and bill of materials (BOM) management, approved source control, flexible item number assignment, file revision control and engineering change workflow with email notifications. PDXpert PLM Release 9 adds a client-side parts list cache for open database connectivity (ODBC)-compliant computer-aided design (CAD) like Altium Designer, OrCAD CIS and Mentor PADS.
