Aust electrical engineers can now use EPLAN software

APS Industrial (APS) has become an agent for the software company Eplan in Australia. The agreement came into effect on 1 December 2023.

Eplan’s platform provides computer-aided engineering design software tools for machine, plant and panel builders, enabling electrical, automation and mechatronic engineers to optimise their engineering processes. The aim is to simplify and streamline complex engineering tasks and processes, including design engineering, sourcing, manufacturing and operations.

“By using EPLAN, you can save time, reduce errors and ensure compliance to standards and documentation accuracy — it is a natural step in a company’s digital transformation, whether that’s for small-, medium- or large-scale manufacturing,” said APS Managing Director David Hegarty.

The agency agreement follows the opening of the APS Manufacturing Centre in Adelaide earlier this year.

“The opening of our national Manufacturing Centre in Adelaide was a clear demonstration of investment and commitment to supporting local businesses and their manufacturing requirements and processes. This agency agreement strengthens that via the ideal platform to streamline challenging engineering processes,” Hegarty said.

“In addition to software support across a wide range of engineering disciplines, users of EPLAN have access to a wide range of high-quality device and component data from an ever-growing pool of manufacturers. Of course, this includes our global manufacturing partners including Siemens, Rittal, Weidmüller and KATKO.”

Access to EPLAN will be facilitated by a dedicated local sales and support team from APS. APS said its strong customer service philosophy and intimate understanding of the requirements of local businesses made it a natural choice as partner for Eplan.

“At Eplan we have more than 1300 employees globally at more than 50 locations — all working to optimise processes in engineering at close to 70,000 companies worldwide,” said Keng Lim Koh, Regional Director – SEA & ANZ, Eplan.

“This agreement with APS Industrial is extremely exciting as it means we now have the perfect channel partner to apply this capability locally on a scale never before seen — greater communication with the customers and opportunities to increase workflow efficiency across all engineering disciplines for the Australian industry,” Koh added.
