Engineering design company, Quantum EDS has signed an exclusive agreement with Netherlands-based company, Adeon Technologies BV to distribute its project content management and e-collaboration system, CXInsight throughout the UK, Ireland and Poland.
The CXInsight distribution agreement makes Quantum EDS - the sister company of specialist PCB design bureau Quantum CAD - the UKs sole reseller of this innovative system. It also means that Quantum EDS can now offer complete design solutions and help OEMs in both design and manufacturing to have full visibility and control of all product information.
Developed specifically for the electronics industry and launched in 2005, CXInsight is a unique single toolset that can offer full traceability and e-collaboration for the complete supply chain over secure Internet communication.
Managing Director, Steve Jones said: The distributorship came about because EDS sister company, Quantum CAD has been expanding rapidly and the manual processes for managing project data that we used were increasing our costs. We had to increase our efficiency and get full control over projects and collaboration with our customers. We evaluated CXInsight to determine the benefits for us, without doubt, it met and exceeded our expectations. Were looking forward to working with our partners at Adeon in implementing this powerful system in the electronics sector.
Commenting on the distribution agreement, Jan Keijzer, managing director at Adeon said, Quantum EDS is an ideal partner for our CXInsight software. They are leaders in their field and have an excellent reputation in the UK electronics market. The CXInsight system offers customers proven benefits in tracking and documenting the manufacturing process from suppliers, distributors, CEMs and other supply chain participants; this compliments Quantums existing product offering and customer base perfectly.
The fact that Quantum EDS sister company Quantum CAD is using CXInsight internally for their services and e-collaboration with their customers is a big plus. It shows confidence in the product, the company can demonstrate CXInsight in full operation to prospects and we get first hand new ideas from the day to day operation, Jan added.
Up to 70% of the cost of a product is determined by development not manufacturing. CXInsight helps to reduce development and operational costs and improve quality. Market research has indicated that those companies who embrace the product data management (PDM) technology consistently outperform their competitors by 22%.
Quantum EDS will be responsible for marketing the system to the three countries while, for the foreseeable future, Adeon will provide the maintenance and training.
