FACTON, software manufacturer and creator of the FACTON Enterprise Product Costing (EPC) solution, is offering its FACTON EPC Design Costing software directly to PTC partners and customers in the PTC Marketplace. This will position FACTON with one of the leading global Internet of Things (IoT) platform providers.
“PTC is driving the widespread use of IoT in industrial applications. Our product costing software enables us to play a key role in helping companies connect the physical and digital worlds so that they can profitably prepare cost calculations and quotations throughout the entire life cycle,” says Alexander M. Swoboda, Chief Executive Officer of FACTON GmbH.
FACTON and PTC have collaborated since 2018. PTC’s Windchill Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is integrated in FACTON’s Design Costing solution. The ThingWorx Navigate app aggregates costing and PLM data to ensure enterprise-wide visibility of product structures and costing information.
PTC’s PLM customers can leverage costing data from a single application and calculate enterprise and product costs more quickly and precisely. The integration is already complete and ready for operation.
