We have been developing interfaces between PDM and ERP systems for over 15 years. These interfaces ensure a direct and reliable flow of information between engineering and logistics. The application of our interface facilitates the development and production process to run seamlessly across systems.
Many renowned national as well as international companies have been using our interfaces for many years. Our products have already proven their value in various industries. Our experienced team supports our customers starting from the design until the implementation and takes care of them after the implementation of the project.

The Innoface GmbH was founded 1st October 2001 in Karlsruhe. The five founders were colleagues in a renowned company based in Karlsruhe before. The company provides PDM systems and SAP® interfaces. During the first years, the interfaces were developed from scratch using the programming language JAVA. Until 2005, Innoface provided mainly SAP-interfaces for the application Pro/INTRALINK by PTC (CAD-data-management for Pro/ENGINEER, which is PTC Creo® Parametric today).
Certification by SAP
In 2004, Innoface's interface for linking Pro/INTRALINK with SAP has been certified by SAP. Since 2004, Innoface is also one of PTC's Software Gold Partners.
Release of IFConneX for SAP
In 2006, the first version of the SAP interface for PTC Windchill® PDMLink® (version 8) was developed and presented on the information event in Karlsruhe for the first time. Starting from 2006, all Pro/INTRALINK 3.x customers shifted to the Windchill-SAP-interface.
Partnerships with 4CAD and INNEO
In 2009, a strategic partnership was formed with 4CAD (PTC-partner) from France for the distribution of Innoface's interfaces in French-speaking countries. Moreover, in July 2011, a joint partner contract was signed with the system house INNEO Solutions GmbH based in Ellwangen.
Release of IFConneX for NAV and Standardization Initiative
Since 2012, Innoface offers more ERP interfaces for PTC Windchill®. The ERP-system MS Dynamics NAV that is often used in German small and medium-sized enterprises was developed in a pilot project with the company Goldhofer AG.
In the same year, a standardization initiative started. The goal of the standardization was to specify the standard scope of operation of the interfaces more accurately and offer a standardized solution that is configurable. At the same time, best practices from many projects were identified and included in the core of the interface. We were able to reduce implementation times dramatically. The flexibility for customer-specific features has still been maintained.
Attendance of the PTC Fair in Boston
In 2014, Innoface visited the PTC fair PTC Global Live in Boston as an exhibiting company for the first time. That year, PTC celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Release of IFConneX for SAGE X3
In spring 2015, a third PTC Windchill-interface for the integration with the ERP-system SAGE X3 was developed and launched with our first customer in France. The interface was developed on behalf of our French partner 4CAD Group. 4CAD Group is the leading PTC partner in France and in French-speaking countries in Europe as well as one of the leading distributors for the ERP-system SAGE X3 in France.
