The number of companies implementing the innovative software solutions from Koppermann continues to grow. This was most evident with the record breaking number of attendees at this year's TEX-DEFINE Workshop.

The new customers used the opportunity to interact with experienced Koppermann-PDM-clientele. The spectrum of the workshop agenda went from "Tips and Tricks" in the daily usage of the software to individually customize solutions. Everyone gained useful ideas that they could use in their daily product development work.

Renowned companies like Rena Lange of Munich and Gabor Shoes of Rosenheim proudly made presentations detailing their successful TEX-DEFINE implementations. Rena Lange explained how the made to measure solution created for them by Koppermann significantly improved their user performance. Gabor Shoes demonstrated their impressive new TEX-DEFINE developments in data gathering and filtering including bills of materials - resulting in our first PLM-project in the footwear sector.

Our innovative approach means we must be plugged into what's happening in the industry, which is why the Workshops are an integral part of our philosophy. As a result we gained many new ideas and helpful suggestions for our future development of TEX-DEFINE. What our customers require tomorrow we want to be the new TEX-DEFINE product feature of today.

We would like thank all of you who attended the workshop and we would like to invite you again next year. For those of you who could not make this workshop keep an eye out for the next one, you are all certainly welcome.
