UK-based Titan Motorsport has installed Autodesk PLM 360, a cloud-based alternative to traditional product lifecycle management systems. Using the solution, the automotive component manufacturer has improved its workflow, reducing quote-to-order times from a maximum of 14 days to three days. Titan first needed to connect and integrate data from multiple software solutions outside its main design tools (Autodesk Product Design Suite) and its core ERP system to simplify internal processes and make it easier to share product information across the entire business.
‘All our software solutions fulfil a distinct task and have their own workflow, but managing and integrating them has become increasingly difficult. One business process was causing a particular headache. When we mapped out our internal processes for handling initial enquiries it was clearly over complicated and drawn out,’ said Mark Martin, Titan systems manager.
‘Autodesk PLM has enabled us to centralise the data so that anyone within the organisation can access it at any time via a web connection, knowing that it is always current and reliable. This is leading to faster, better-informed decisions and, ultimately enhanced customer service as we respond more promptly to enquiries,’ he added.
