August 7, 2018 - Aras, a maker of open product lifecycle management (PLM) software for the enterprise, has acquired SofTech Srl to expand direct engagement with customers and meet increasing demand for Aras PLM in Southern Europe.

SofTech Srl, a subsidiary of SofTech Inc., has been a long-standing, strategic implementation partner for Aras when engaging leading aerospace and automotive customers in Italy. Aras’s new office in Milan, Italy adds to the company’s existing European footprint that includes France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. All current SofTech Srl employees are remaining with the company and will become employees of Aras.

Aras’s expanded direct presence is critical for on-the-ground collaboration with enterprise customers who are embarking on complex digital transformation initiatives. Using the Aras PLM platform, manufacturers are able to employ agile implementation to rapidly transform their existing product development architecture and deliver fast time to value.

Dante Cislaghi, general manager of SofTech Srl, said, “Aras has experienced tremendous growth and momentum as manufacturers realize their existing processes and IT architectures no longer suffice. Today’s products are simply too complex for legacy systems. We see that first hand working with customers, and have deployed the Aras platform to solve the most complex product challenges that other PLM systems were not able to address. We now look forward to contributing directly to Aras’ growing story.”
