EDMS: Additional Benefits of Aptean Food and Beverage PLM, Lascom Edition NPD solution for the food, cosmetic, and other CPG industries
Aptean PLM Lascom Edition includes additional features and offers greater benefits than standalone Electronic Document Management software, as it is a comprehensive and holistic New Product Development (NPD) package.
The solution accelerates and automates document generation through templates and connectors to other tools such as the Microsoft Office Suite. Users will still be able to work with these tools and decide which information to store in, or retrieve from, the Aptean PLM Lascom Edition repository. No re-keying needed.
In other words, Lascom fom Aptean document automation software provides integration with, for instance, Microsoft Office, enabling users to work with familiar Word and Excel interfaces while their data is being centrally and securely managed by the document automation software. The solution consequently facilitates document generation, while users save time and avoid re-keying errors.
However, using an EDMS does not in itself ensure that all project information is correctly handled. Beyond documents themselves, there is a vast amount of information, such as product data, contributor profiles, strategic KPIs, tracked tasks, information dependencies, etc., that needs to be considered.
Therefore, in addition to an Electronic Document Management System, Aptean PLM Lascom Edition software offers its users a complete Project and Product Management solution, including process and workflow management, reporting, version control, business intelligence, task tracking, etc.
