=> A live demonstration of how Propel and Salesforce uniquely support modern Engineer to Order business processes
How the Cloud Helps Sales, Engineering and Operations to Create Winning Quotes
Changing customer expectations, new types of competitors, and more complex products are endangering the entire business model of engineer-to-order (ETO) companies. ETO companies need to change now because the old game of throwing information back-and-forth between engineering, sales and operations is no longer good enough.
Customers are no longer satisfied with mediocre response times, lack of project visibility and disjointed communication across sales, engineering, and operations. Blaming other teams for lower margins from poorly coordinated quotes doesn’t help with lost business to more nimble competitors.
In this webinar, Andrew Reiser of Mountain Point, a Salesforce and manufacturing consulting firm, and Miguel Tam of Propel, a Salesforce manufacturing software provider, will share how best-in-class companies are embracing the cloud to work better together, with internal teams and customers, and win more business.
This live webcast will cover how cloud applications like Propel and the Salesforce Sales Cloud can create an integrated business process from initial customer request to design discussions to winning customer quotes.
Join this webinar to see:
- How a unified cloud platform can tie sales, engineering and operations processes
- Real-world customer examples that have seen product throughput grow by 500%
- A live demonstration of how Mountain Point, Propel and Salesforce uniquely support modern Engineer to Order business processes
Adopt a Customer-Centric Approach to Reduce Risk with Post-Market Surveillance and Product Complaints:
Being customer-centric in the medical device industry isn’t just about personalized healthcare or integrating IoT feedback into your next generation of devices. Customer centricity has a major role in reducing risk with your post-market surveillance and product complaints process. By having a much more streamlined process to gather customer feedback - both positive and negative - medical device companies can lower risk, improve regulatory compliance, reduce errors and increase customer responsiveness.
In this webinar, Miguel Tam of Propel will focus on the importance of putting your customers first and integrating customer feedback directly into your product quality processes and design reviews.
Hear more about the following:
=> How medical device companies can reduce risk by tying CRM, QMS and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management)
=> Real-world examples of companies who have streamlined customer complaints, CAPAs and engineering changes
=> A live demonstration of how Propel helps with customer complaints and post-market surveillance
View the Future of QMS today! Join us for a live and interactive demonstration of Propel’s game-changing cloud QMS solution. See how quality and complaint management can ease the burden of regulatory compliance for medical device and other regulated industries.
Companies have been integrating CAD and PLM for decades, so is there anything really different that cloud technologies can do? For over 20 years, integrating CAD systems like SolidWorks and Creo to PLM systems has helped mechanical engineers be more efficient. But what about everyone else who needs to see the latest product updates? That’s where the cloud comes in. With their brand new cloud CAD connector, Onshape and Propel are changing how companies can design, launch and sell. The newly launched Onshape and Propel connector not only helps mechanical engineers be more productive, it also allows everyone inside and outside a company to securely share product designs and data.
In this webinar, Joe Dunne, Head of Developer Relations at Onshape, Jayson Kadlecek, Product Manager at Propel, and Miguel Tam, VP of Marketing at Propel, will explain the benefits of an integrated cloud CAD and PLM solution. Joe and Miguel will walk through specific use cases that customers are exploring, and Jayson will do a live demonstration of how Onshape and Propel work for everyone to deliver amazing products.
They will show how Propel and Onshape can:
- Streamline creation of parts and assemblies from Onshape to Propel
- Synchronize product updates across CAD and PLM
- Better support business models like Engineer to Order
Note: Contact information from this webinar will be shared with Onshape.
Modern cloud QMS solutions for medical devices provides closed-loop quality management with integrated product lifecycle management (PLM), CRM to speed products to market while maintaining regulatory compliance, all in the cloud.
Brad Hinke, Director of Quality Services & Validation at Propel
If your company is thinking about buying software to help with product development and manufacturing, validation is a critical step for complying with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and Part 820. But many firms often lack detailed expertise and experience to make sure their non-product software is validated. With lack of resources and direction, how can you make sure your software is validated at a reasonable cost.
Brad Hinke, Director of Quality Services & Validation at Propel will host a live webinar and provide guidance and best practices from real-life lessons on validation. Brad has worked with both small and large medical device firms in all aspects of validation and implementation.
In this webinar, learn the following:
- what software needs to be validated and lessons learned from past validation efforts
- frameworks for approaching validation
- steps you must do to be compliant with the FDA.
Nicole Cannon, CEO, Cannon Quality Group & Miguel Tam, VP Marketing, Propel
Starting up a medical device company takes a lot of time, money and effort. In addition to the research, fundraising, product development, clinical trials, etc., the FDA and other regulatory agencies require a quality system to be defined and maintained. But when is the best time to implement a quality system in your medical device startup?
Recorded live in March 2019, Nicolle Cannon, CEO of the Cannon Quality Group hosted. Nicolle provided guidance and best practices to quality systems implementation and answer your questions.

Is your company developing or planning to develop a software product that meets the definition of a medical device?
In January 2019, FDA published its draft working model for a new precertification program, to supplement its medical device approval process for software which functions as a medical device. The FDA recognized that the traditional regulatory methodology is not well suited for the fast-paced, iterative-design development used for digital health software products.
Medical device expert and executive Rick Altinger led a panel discussion of the new digital health software regulations. and answered questions in this webinar recorded in February 2019. Learn the following:
- Is my company eligible for the program?
- What is the timeline for the new regulations?
- What does it mean to be pre-certified?
- What are the risks of non-participation?
Both PLM and ERP vendors tout capabilities for managing bills of materials (BOMs), changes, versions, files and other information related to your products. This makes some people wonder why you need both. The truth is PLM focuses on planning, while ERP focuses on execution.
What makes Propel different? Because we're built on the Salesforce platform, it's easy to tie customer, sales, engineering and operations together to improve the Engineer to Order process - and deliver products that customers will love.
