Medical device companies today face growing demands for innovation, intense competition and unprecedented pricing pressures. They also face strict yet evolving environmental and regulatory requirements, including the FDA’s rule for Unique Device Identification (UDI), and the ongoing need to better manage product quality across corporate functions.
The world’s most respected medical device manufacturers are turning to product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions like PTC Windchill® to help manage product quality early and across the entire product lifecycle, resulting in reduced risk, streamlined compliance and accelerated innovation.
Kalypso provides medical device companies with a cost-effective accelerator for traditional PLM implementations with PLM Accel™ for Medical Device.
