What Our Customers Have to Say
See for yourself and benefit from what we have to offer
“It’s about gradually capturing and controlling all of our processes and the data they create… This approach has really helped us a great deal.”
“It used to be that we sometimes had multiple drawings at our different locations and no one knew which one was up to date. Now, we don’t have to worry about that anymore. PRO.FILE makes sure that the data we work with is always valid.”
Working With PRO.FILE
PRO.FILE makes your work easier and creates new opportunities
The ability to store and retrieve product related data and documents in a swift and accurate manner is critical to meeting tighter development cycles.
PRO.FILE provides a Product Data Backbone to securely and consistently store and retrieve your product knowledge. Data and documents generated from your mechanical, electrical, electronical and software development teams are managed in one fully integrated solution. The variant creation process is mostly automated and so is the provision of documents to your manufacturing and service teams. External partners are seamlessly integrated into your development process – without allowing external companies access to your PRO.FILE installation.
- One system to manage all of your CAD data and product related documents
- Variants are all well documented
- Access your change history at the click of a button
- BOMs are automatically transferred to the ERP system
- Securely exchange entire assemblies with external companies such as partners or customers
Production planning is at the center of controlling your manufacturing processes but in order for it to work, it needs to be able to access any and all manufacturing data regarding your products. Having to search for this data is time consuming and prevents your teams from doing their jobs.
With PRO.FILE, we have developed an intelligent solution that automatically provides production planners and purchasers with the most current released version of product development data such as item master data and bills of materials, along with any related drawings in PDF or TIF format.
- You can use PRO.FILE to compare variants and BOMs of different versions
- Our data exchange platform PROOM provides a secure way to seamlessly exchange your technical documents with suppliers, partners or customers
- PRO.FILE also helps you enforce guidelines for purchased parts
Errors found in drawings, NC programs, routings and other documents, once production is underway, can cause major headaches.
By managing your documents with PRO.FILE, you can systematically prevent this from happening. You can be rest assured that all documents are available on the production floor on time, in full, and in their most current version.
- Your employees can access the most current drawings, NC programs, and other documents simply by clicking a button on their terminals
- You can match batch related machine logs to products

PRO.FILE also comes equipped with DMStec which allows you to manage all product related documents throughout your organization such as those generated in engineering, sales, quality assurance, purchasing, customer support, etc. DMStec managed documents are stored and integrated in the same Product Data Backbone, providing you with one source of the truth.
