vdR Nexus for OpenBOM

Breaking down silos is disruptive, and delivering “unifying efforts” of seamlessly connected apps is extremely important. The vdR Nexus Solution Provides an “Environmental Link” Platform Connecting Data, Says Martin van der Roest, CEO of vdR Group

OpenBOM™, a leading SaaS digital product data management and collaboration platform, announces a partnership with vdR Group to deliver enterprise connectivity to OpenBOM customers using the vdR Nexus platform. OpenBOM develops SaaS PDM and PLM products to help manufacturing companies solve pervasive problems related to data management, data silos, and communication within a company and across supply chains. OpenBOM enables users to manage data, files, and associated changes across engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, contractors, and suppliers across organizational and geographic boundaries.

“OpenBOM partnerships with vdR unlock the broad set of integrations with PLM, ERP, CRM and other platforms provided by the vdR Nexus platform. The power of vdR connectivity and fully customizable Nexus transaction models help simplify the delivery of OpenBOM to manufacturing companies to exchange information and transact seamlessly and without disruption,” says Oleg Shiovitky, CEO and Co-Founder from OpenBOM. “The vdR experience and rich set of integrations streamline the delivery of OpenBOM to all sizes of businesses to streamline data transfer and cross-functional business processes”

Nexus is an enterprise connectivity solution that was designed from the ground up to meet the unique needs of companies engaged in engineering and manufacturing. By facilitating the digital thread across disparate data silos, Nexus ultimately helps organizations meet their delivery commitments, reduce the cost of quality, and achieve their profit margin goals.

To support these lifecycle stages, organizations have long recognized the value of acquiring and implementing “best of breed” applications. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing a manufacturer’s ERP requirements. Companies with multiple manufacturing facilities and distribution channels will have very different ERP needs than a single facility/product manufacturer. Additionally, if organizations cannot find an out-of-the-box option, they will create their own platforms to meet their unique business needs. The reality of autonomous applications or “data silos” is inescapable.

Breaking down silos is disruptive and often impractical, and delivering “unifying efforts” of seamlessly connected apps is critically important. The vdR Nexus solution provides an ‘environmental link’ platform linking data in OpenBOM and other platforms and tools,” said Martin van der Roest, CEO of vdR Group. Nexus leaves the applications as they are, connects and/or links the different applications together and orchestrates the exchange of data and files.
