“We are excited to announce the IFS Applications 10 Connector among our offering. This represents a significant adition to the Elmo Solutions family of integration products designed with ETO manufacturing in mind,” says Science Officer Ricardo Talbot. “Elmo Solution’s R&D team is committed to providing ongoing enhancements to IFS ERP customers. Knowing Agni Link is an IFS-compatible product will ensure these users they are achieving a very high level of productivity when using Agni Link in conjunction with IFS.”

Agni Link is an add-in solution to PLM PDM and CAD applications that provides bidirectional, real-time exchange of engineering metadata with ERP systems. It a unique application that offers a simple and reliable approach to integrate engineering and manufacturing data. It can automatically resolve discrepancies, while allowing editing of CAD data using possible values obtained “live” from the ERP system, which ensures perfect synchronization of both data sets of objects and virtually eliminating redundant data entry as well as eliminating costly errors on the shop floor.

Agni Link can process and synchronize a wide range of product data from either environment, including:

  • Bills of Materials (BoMs)
  • Jobs
  • Estimating
  • Sales Quotes
  • Business Process Management (BPM) data
  • Work Orders
  • Production Orders
  • Production Schedules
  • Product Catalogs
  • Product Configurations
  • Parts Catalogs
  • Technical Documentation
  • Supply Chain Data
  • Document Management
  • CRM data

Agni Link addresses the needs of CAD/PDM/PLM and IFS users sharing product data throughout the enterprise.

Designed with the end-user in mind, it includes powerful characteristics such as: 

  • An Integration Dashboard that allows validation of BoM data directly from the CAD environment
  • A Configuration Builder that enables customers to create and edit an unlimited number of mappings.

Established in 1979, Elmo Solutions is a world class leader in CAD-ERP data integration, with users in over 50 countries.

Benefits of Agni Link


Reduce Design Time by Up To 25%

In ETO-intensive manufacturing companies, anywhere between 5% and 25% of the total engineering is devoted to the transfer of Bills of Materials from engineering to manufacturing. Automating that process translates into dramatic savings... and improved lead time.

Elimination of Costly Errors on Factory Floor

Increased BoM accuracy brings increased product quality, better yield on raw materials... and lower production costs.

Rapid Return On Investment

Agni Link usually pays for itself very quickly. Recovery periods of 180 days or less are not uncommon.

Easy Does It.

Easy to deploy. Easy to use. Easy to maintain. And always under total control of the customer... and customer's users.


Automatic Error Detection and Correction

Agni Link's unique architecture allows not only preventing, but also automatic resolution of discrepancies, based on rules over which the customer has complete control. Just another way we can maximize your engineers' engineering time.

No. Programming. Ever.

An Agni Link customer has full control over the integration process, thanks to the Agni Link Configuration Builder. Add as many mappings as you like, modify or suppress existing mappings. Define data validity by your own rules. Without any programming whatsoever.

Value-Added Services

The JumpStart (implementation support) and BigBangBoMs (Data Initialization) Programs greatly enhance the value of the solution by bringing complementary services... for a fixed fee. No surprises!

Up And Running in 30 days... or less.

From the kick-off meeting to the final rollout, a typical implementation is normally completed within 20 business days.


Agni Link currently works in English and French. Configuring other languages is a straightforward process, and can be easily done upon request.
