Omnify Software’s next generation Empower PLM solution, version 5.0, features a completely browser-based platform designed to enhance user accessibility, system performance and scalability to support the product design and development needs of small to mid-sized manufacturers. The new platform and algorithm developments have had a significant performance improvement on many common operations, including authentication, Change/ECO processing and Bill of Material viewing/reporting, according to the company. It also features multiple language support and customizable vernacular to the application forms without having to install multiple application instances. Each user can select from a different language dictionary. The new platform also provides enhanced integration across all Empower modules, as well as third-party applications. Standard reports and a customizable reporting engine have been provided to allow users to create bar graphs, pie charts, Pareto charts and line graphs.
