ANDOVER, MA, USA and LYON, France, Mar 16, 2021 – Aras, the only resilient platform provider for digital industrial applications, announced that Haulotte, a world leading aerial work platform manufacturer, has selected Aras’ end-to-end PLM platform to enable a true digital thread, ensuring traceability and collaboration across the enterprise. By implementing a digital transformation platform, Haulotte’s six factory locations and twenty-one subsidiaries and offices around the world can now access previously siloed critical information and can cultivate continuous collaboration in a single environment, accelerating digital transformation across the organization.
Haulotte’s legacy system did not have the flexibility required to sustainably adapt to rapidly changing business requirements. It recognized the need for a digital transformation platform capable of effectively managing and connecting all product information, both internally and with customers and suppliers. Having the ability to continuously and quickly adapt in order to transform their product ecosystem and ensure resiliency was crucial for Haulotte.
With the Aras platform, Haulotte can quickly optimize and implement, ensure seamless collaboration of all users, and have a single reliable data source that can be shared across the enterprise. Today, almost all of the businesses within Haulotte – production, purchasing, quality, etc. – use the Aras platform.
For Digital Transformation projects to succeed, an iterative approach is required. For Haulotte, this starts with linking its global vision to business needs. Then, using the Aras Platform, turn those needs into digital transformation projects, planned out using a roadmap that addresses risk impacts and results, linked to business needs – minimizing the risk of project failure.
“To support our vision to become the most valuable and safest working at height solution maker in creating the serenest customer experience, we wanted to have an agile and collaborative platform to share information between our different sites, but also be able to integrate with our information systems – ERP, CRM, and so on,” said David Breneur, PLM Project Manager of the Haulotte Group. “Aras’ end-to-end platform allows us to optimize productivity, enhance consistency and continuity, and increase enterprise collaboration, all while providing the flexibility needed to pivot as our business transforms.”
“We are very pleased with the choice of Aras by the Haulotte Group as the platform for its new PLM initiative,” said Stéphane Guignard, Aras’ VP of Operations, Southern Europe. “With the Aras platform, Haulotte will be able to support its mission to put the customer back at the center of the business by bringing marketing and services activities closer to those of design and manufacturing.”
