Zurich (Switzerland), Hanover (Germany). September 22, 2009. – After a detailed selection process Bahlsen, Germany’s market leader in sweet baked goods, decides for SpecPage’s integrated software application SpecPDM.

Thus all critical information is stored in a database which was previously collected in various subsystems. This seamless integration is a step forward in terms of traceability and information efficiency. Redundant processing steps are therefore excluded. In addition, full costing and cost control is ensured in each development project, which also allows simulating new products with trial
