Value proposition

RuleDesigner is a collaboration platform that allows you to digitize the entire value chain with a holistic approach and scalable solutions that interact with the IT ecosystem of companies by integrating processes and connecting all the relevant actors.

Traditional information systems, such as ERP and PDM, are tools to support internal processes with a scope and a specialized and vertical user target. In these systems, however, information and documents are stored which, when suitably reorganized to be made usable by actors belonging to the PLM process or to that of the supply chain, create enormous added value.

RuleDesigner enhances the corporate information assets by improving the efficiency of business processes with value-added web services provided automatically.
