Zovy offers customized solutions to help customers in the manufacturing industry manage all of their data governance needs. With a strong history of providing software and services to the manufacturing industry, Zovy is uniquely positioned to have an inside perspective of the challenges faced by those in this sector.
These challenges include:
– the integration of a collaborative design environment that leverages both 2D and 3D parametric and non-parametric data.
– A changing development process where partners, vendors and customers all want to be involved in the early stages of a project.
– The proliferation of a “design anywhere, build anywhere” philosophy that takes advantage of geographically distributed teams.
As firms continue to deal with these challenges, IT departments are facing pressure to efficiently manage data governance needs. In many cases, the amount of data manufacturing companies are creating in the form of CAD models, email communication, instant messaging, project documentation, scanned information and other data types has increased two to three times in the last five years and is growing at a rate of up to 50% or more per year.
Managing rapid data growth and real-time availability of information is critical for companies to truly leverage the power of collaborative design teams. Many companies have naturally evolved PDM and PLM systems as a way to deal with these challenges. However, these solutions are difficult to implement, require ongoing administration and regular software updates. Zovy allows companies in the manufacturing industry to reduce their reliance on these inefficient systems in order to increase overall efficiency.
Additionally, recent changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) have made it clear that electronically stored information (ESI) management is essential when working with partners and multiple internal departments on a project. Zovy is built to allow customers in the manufacturing industry to rapidly deploy a solution that enables compliance with all FRCP policies throughout the project management process.
