Infor Partners with CAD Service to Enhance EAM Proposition

Infor EAM OpenCAD Enables Superior Graphical Representation of Assets and Improved Agility

NEW YORK -  Aug 12, 2013

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a worldwide partnership with CAD Service, a provider of CAD-led asset management software.  Through the strategic partnership, Infor will integrate CAD Service's software with its Infor EAM application to deliver superior graphical representation of asset-related information to customers across the globe.  Infor EAM OpenCAD will help customers to save time, improve processes and boost the effectiveness of asset management programs by allowing customers to view assets through the OpenCAD interface from within the Infor EAM application, without the need to run a separate graphic tool.  

News Points

  • Infor will integrate OpenCAD with its Infor EAM application to help organizations boost asset visibility in a CAD format, without the need to run two or more separate systems to achieve this combined functionality within the EAM application.
  • By enabling asset visibility in a CAD format, Infor EAM OpenCAD will deliver greater efficiencies to improve productivity, achieve greater accuracy, and promote tighter management of EAM programs through more detailed representations of the various aspects of an organization's asset management strategy.
  • This visual approach is simpler to use and enables asset-related decisions to be made more quickly and confidently.
  • Infor EAM OpenCAD supports both DWG and DGN drawing formats so graphics can be accessed more immediately using the software's integrated auto-discovery capabilities. Once incorporated into the system, modifications can be made easily without using AutoCAD or MicroStation. 
  • Global customers already using the application include Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), Cornèr Banca and Gruppo Coin.
  • UK-based defense leader AWE is one of the first organizations to deploy the integrated application and is using Infor EAM OpenCAD to support risk and compliance across the business. 
  • Swiss Banking Group Cornèr Banca uses Infor EAM OpenCAD to graphically view, analyze and navigate drawings and plans to create a GUI (graphical user interface) for asset activities and space management, crucially without the need to deploy separate CAD applications.  

Infor Quote

"As organizations remain focused on lowering costs, improving service levels and implementing green initiatives through best-in-class asset management, speed and responsiveness are fundamental," comments Kevin Price, product director, Infor EAM.  "With this partnership, Infor EAM OpenCAD makes the tracking of asset usage, visualization of work areas and sourcing of information faster and easier.  This more accessible, detailed visibility can increase asset reliability, reduce costs, lower energy usage and support regulatory compliance while making the task much simpler for the user."
