2G Energy AG is an internationally leading manufacturer of combined and heat and power plants (CHP) for the decentralized provision of power and heat on the basis of gas motors driven by natural gas, biomethane, biogas, sewage gas, landfill gas or hydrogen.
With PRO.FILE, 2G Energy now has a PLM solution that allows it to document even its most complex products and to control its technical and business workflows – including a number of Industry 4.0 applications. The flood of digital documents and the need to control them as part of their daily routines used to cause the employees at 2G Energy AG major headaches. The company is a model for interdepartmental collaboration based on PRO.FILE, which is used:
- to manage CAD documents and bills of materials for development purposes
- to manage projects
- to process invoices and archive documents in the commercial department
- to capture and resolve maintenance and service issues
“We used to have paper-based assembly reports and stacks of copies circulate around the company. Now, the PRO.FILE project dashboard allows us to instantly track the status of any report in any service region and to immediately retrieve the information our customers are looking for.” Christoph Bäumer, regional service manager at 2G.
