Improve Your Innovation Rate and Time to Market
Streamline Your Product Development
Bring your teams together to launch trouble-free new projects based on an accurate evaluation of your marketing ideas or your clients' requests. From ideation to product launch, monitor all the milestones of your projects with accuracy ensuring your resources are notified when they have tasks to perform and they can prioritise their work easily. With dedicated reports you're able to better manage your teams' workload and quickly identify delays.
Boost the Innovation Rate of Your R&D
Equip your Research and Development team with a powerful and intuitive formulation tool that's able to detect any mismatch between a formula and its brief. With our advanced PLM system you can keep track of all your prototypes so you can quickly start a new product development based on an existing knowledge database. And you can free your teams from time-consuming calculations so they can focus on innovation.
Simplify Your Quality and Regulatory Department
With a few clicks, you can generate the list of ingredients and nutritional values, in accordance with various regulations. To further streamline processes, you're able to edit your product technical sheets using custom templates and gather all documents required for the Product Information File (PIF). And centralise quality events related to your products, such as non-conformities, complaints or cosmetovigilance cases.
Collaborate With All Stakeholders
Say goodbye to information silos. With Aptean PLM software, your partners can share information and iterate with you in the same location, you can capture raw material or packaging specifications directly from your suppliers and give direct access to your graphic artists. Audits of your suppliers' sites and performance indicators are even dematerialised and stored for thorough analysis and follow-up.

Formulation and Manufacturing
Formulate efficiently with a tool that alerts you when thresholds are exceeded.

You can also define the manufacturing process associated with each formula, including quantities, machines, parameters, tests and documentation.
New Product Development and Workflows
Manage the entire new product development cycle. Our NPD features – including workflows, stage gate management, automated notifications, Gantt chart visualisation, milestones and reporting – enable you to easily develop new products.
Packaging and Artwork Development
Manage the entire process of packaging innovation. We help you create, manage and validate your packaging specifications. Features, such as artworks proofing and comparison, optimise your entire graphic chain process.
Product Specification and Document Management
Efficiently manage your product specifications—from entering information to automatically generating documents from templates. Our PLM software integrates an electronic document management system to store documents and record products and raw materials.
Keep your data repository up to date with lifecycle management features. Easily find the use cases of components in your different products and formulas. Mass replacement will allow you to automatically replace a raw material with another in the formulas that use it while recalculating them and managing their versioning.
Maintain compliance with the regulations of the countries where your products are marketed using features such as requirements checking, automatic generation of ingredient lists in several languages and nutrition facts generation. You can also track cosmetovigilance incidents and generate your product information file (PIF).
Give suppliers the opportunity to help you keep your data up to date. Thanks to the supplier portal, suppliers can directly enter the data of raw materials, packaging, their company and sites directly in your PLM. And, with the integrated workflow engine, you directly manage the content and timing of exchanges.
