Storage solutions specialist BITO: Innovative product processes better stored with CONTACT Software
BITO Storage solutions - one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of industry- and customer-oriented storage solutions in Europe - optimizes its innovation potential in the product development and project management process with CIM Database PLM from CONTACT Software. The ambition: to advance the digital transformation of its customers in distribution logistics as well.
BITO-Lagertechnik Bittmann GmbH, founded in 1845, is one of the few complete suppliers in the industry to develop, manufacture and market high-quality shelving, container, order picking and transport systems. With a turnover of 240 million euros (2017), the international company with over 950 employees is one of the market leaders for innovative storage solutions in Europe.
Comprehensive, often industry-specific requirements and the increasing digitalization and automation of logistics also require a high degree of innovation and flexibility from storage technology. In order to continue to grow successfully in this dynamic environment in the future and to expand its market leadership, BITO is replacing its old system with CIM Database PLM from CONTACT Software.
The solution optimizes the cross-location product development of the company through integrated Multi-CAD data management and the "Single Source of Truth" principle. Together with CONTACT's modules for agile and hybrid project management, BITO will improve its company-wide cooperation, accelerate the processes along the entire product development process and consistently secure its innovation leadership in smart solutions for storage logistics.
"Customers appreciate the flexibility of our solutions. We chose CONTACT software to be more agile in responding to new and special requirements and to ensure process traceability" (Daniela Bondorf, Project Management /CAD at BITO Storage solutions)
