PLM Managed Services

Fill gaps and reduce system downtime with dedicated technical experts with around-the-clock availability. 


Providing PLM Solutions that meet your needs

Identifying Your PLM Challenges

Organizations today are facing growing competition and complexities. They need to increase the flexibility and agility of their businesses, and simultaneously reduce costs and risks. Technology alone isn’t enough to meet your increasingly complex and dynamic business and information system’s needs. PLM Managed Services are a way for smaller businesses and businesses without the necessary in-house expertise to still get the maximum benefit from PLM.

Efficiency and Competitiveness:

Without proper management, PLM systems can become outdated or underutilized, reducing their effectiveness and your competitive edge. Managed services ensure your PLM system is always up-to-date and fully utilized.


Hiring full-time specialists for PLM management can be costly. Managed services provide expert support without the need for in-house specialists, offering a cost-effective solution.

Risk Management:

Managed services minimize the risks associated with maintaining client data and sensitive competitive information, providing peace of mind and security.

Client Success

"Domain Systems also did one thing, which I hold in very high regard. When talking about how to handle our company issues the Domain Systems' consultants would talk to me and not at me. There are very few people in this world who have that capability when dealing with those who aren't as informed as they are.

Simply put, managed services ensure best practice day-to-day operation of your PLM application. A PLM managed services provider (MSP) is an extension of your business, generally working under the direction of IT. PLM managed services are a way for smaller businesses and businesses without the necessary in-house expertise to still get the maximum benefit from PLM.

Managed Services offer a variety or benefits but one of the biggest is cost control. With Manages Services you can reduce the cost producing your products. 

While Managed Services will not replace existing staff members, it will help free up more of your existing resources to focus on more strategic projects. You can rest assured that your company is minimizing the risks associated with maintaining client data and sensitive competitive information and more with today’s managed service offerings.

Are you trying to decide whether to use managed services or consulting? Experts in both focus areas can help you determine the best technological solutions for your company’s future, and both can assist you in implementing those solutions.

However here’s how they differ: Unlike a consultant who leaves after completing an implementation or other engagement, a managed services provider will stay with your company and look after your IT from weeks to months and even years to come, forging a long-term relationship to help keep your technology working smoothly and worry-free.

Take a Quick Assessment of Needs

Relying on an in-house multi-role person for ad-hoc PLM application support pulls that resource away from other core business function whether that function is researching a better solution for lack of experience or contributing directly to the business in other ways. Also an in-house PLM IT team requires salaries, benefits and office real estate in order to get the job done. With Domain, you are paying only for the resources you use.

You may have Agile modules that are not fully utilized or even implemented. Delay in implementation is costly and defeats the value proposition for having the module in the first place. Domain’s thorough understanding of your industry vertical coupled with industry best practice ensures that you are getting the best value and ROI for your organization

When you don’t have the proper Agile PLM resources available, security and downtime can become serious problems that can dramatically hinder your ability to grow as well as to take full advantage of this critical enterprise system. You end up addressing the symptoms of a problem without addressing the root causes, which leaves Agile in a break-fix cycle that is never-ending and nightmarish. Turning the hassle of PLM support over to Domain, you can rest assured that your issues are being remediated correctly, the first time. This will result in an increased quality and reliability of the Agile comprehensive solution.

If your in-house Agile PLM expert is someone who handles the technology responsibilities of your organization on top of their other primary responsibilities, that person probably spends most of their time putting out fires instead of taking proactive and preventative measures to strengthen your PLM environments. Domain Systems provides augmented value to firms who already have internal IT teams.

This is a common problem. Most organizations devote in-house resources to maintaining the current environment. This involves patches, troubleshooting and provisioning if that. While this is vital to keeping your PLM application up and running, it leaves very little time for your PLM Team to focus on big, strategic issues that could potentially deliver even more value. Involving Domain will allow for issues to be detected early, solved and prevented from happening again.

Outsourcing the day-to-day maintenance of your PLM technology allows for companies of all sizes to be able to have expert resources available to support their application needs whether it’s, improved business process, performance optimization, creating best practice security models or . Bringing in experienced PLM resources to an organization provides both a depth and a breadth of information gained through experience in solving PLM issues.
