NEWS: CONTACT Software and Eplan intensify their cooperation

CONTACT Software offers a standard interface for CIM Database PLM to Eplan Electric P8. Now both companies are deepening their collaboration. The framework for this is defined by the new Eplan Partner Network.

Launched in January 2021, the Eplan Partner Network (EPN) bundles the know-how of existing and new partners from the automation and IT industry worldwide. With this initiative, Eplan and well-known vendors from the fields of PLM, ERP, PLC as well as simulation set binding common goals for the further development, quality assurance and support of their system interfaces.

"The new partner network takes our previous cooperation to a higher level, because we now coordinate our roadmaps even more closely," says Nam Nguyen, Partner Account Manager at CONTACT Software. "This allows us to schedule new ECAD functions for our Elements integration platform at an early stage and keep our API up to date." That is an advantage for customers like Weidmüller and other users of Eplan software who coordinate the development of their mechatronic products via CONTACT's interface. 

CONTACT's interface integrates electrical engineering into product lifecycle management.

"Together with the EPN partners, we are systematically increasing the benefits for end users," says Marco Litto, Senior Vice President Strategy & Corporate Program at Eplan. "The connectors between our systems will be planned, developed, tested, supported and marketed with the same stringency and sustainability as we are used to with regard to our own solutions."

The cooperation of leading solution providers in system integration enables companies to use data from different sources along the industrial value chain. This empowers them to design end-to-end processes from development and manufacturing to the operation of technically complex products and thus sustainably increase their productivity.
