Leading Physical IP Security Software Innovator Installs Omnify’s Out of the Box Solution to Gain Enhanced Functionality and Operational Savings
Tewksbury, MA, January 14, 2014 – Omnify Software, a leading provider of web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for discrete manufacturers, today unveils its latest Empower PLM application story featuring Genetec Inc., a leader in unified IP video management system (VMS), access control and license plate recognition (LPR) solutions. Genetec moved from its legacy open-source PLM system to Empower PLM to gain important functionality and achieve time and cost savings.
As Genetec grew its business in the physical IP video surveillance industry, the company chose to transition its PLM system to Omnify Empower PLM for greater performance features and a turnkey solution. Empower PLM provided Genetec with essential features such as reference designators, Bill of Material (BOM) redlining, BOM comparisons, change history tracking and data importing capabilities that did not require customization of the software to employ.
“As the company grew, we determined that our development teams required a more robust and cost-effective solution to manage our expanding product development information processes,” said Danny Roy, Hardware Development Manager for Genetec, Inc. “After a thorough review, we chose Omnify Software because we were impressed with its ease of use, functionality and competitive price.”
After implementing Empower PLM, Genetec saved substantial time and money by cutting out software customization and manual processes required by their previous open-source system. Design engineers are now able to import large electronic boards or mechanical assembly BOMs into Empower, easily and within seconds. Previously this required a cut-and-paste, item by item.
“More and more, we are seeing savvy customers like Genetec moving away from systems that require a heavy consulting effort and customizations, and choosing solutions that offer essential functionality, out of the box with little or no customization and configuration,” stated Chuck Cimalore, CTO for Omnify Software. “Omnify’s approach reduces deployment and implementation phases, lowers the initial and long-term costs, provides a seamless path for upgrades and updates, and affords the flexibility to switch to different deployment environments, including on-premises to hosted and vice versa.”
Genetec develops open-platform software, hardware and cloud-based services for the physical security and public safety industry. Its flagship product, Security Center, unifies IP-based video surveillance, access control and license plate recognition (LPR) into one platform. A global innovator since 1997, Genetec is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and serves enterprise and government organizations via an integrated network of resellers, integrators and consultants in over 80 countries. Genetec was founded on the principle of innovation and remains at the forefront of emerging technologies that unify physical security systems.
