The automotive supplier community is under ever-increasing pressure to speed their responses to RFQs, produce more advanced parts, and reduce cost, all while delivering near-perfect quality. Despite investment in line-of-business applications like CAD, ERP and PLM, suppliers lack enterprise-class software to satisfy the cross-functional process management, collaboration, and data integration needs of their program managers.
According to the report, “CIMdata believes that replacing current implementations with something like Actify’s APM suite presents a compelling opportunity. Adopting an enterprise-class software solution that is purpose-built for program management can unlock improved productivity, reduced risk, and drive performance gains including better win rates, improved customer satisfaction, and higher program profitability.”
The Actify APM Suite, to be released in phases starting Q1 2021, will provide applications addressing Program Development, Program Management and Program Analysis, as well as Actify Centro at its foundation. Actify APM Suite will be available first in North America, with global roll-out to follow. More details will be available at time of release.
“Working with our more than 1,500 customers, most of which are in the automotive supply chain, we realized they need a purpose-built suite of applications covering the entire program lifecycle from pre-award, to launch, and throughout the lifetime of their programs,” said Dave Opsahl, CEO of Actify. “We are excited about this validation from CIMdata, as it reinforces the need for a category of solutions that is long overdue.”
