Makersite is an award-winning data software company that develops next-generation product data management tools for the global manufacturing industry.  The platform is the only cloud-based platform combining data aggregation and live applications for agile product life cycle management.

The state-of-the-art approach to product data management has allowed companies of all shapes and sizes to take advantage of what it has to offer.

Makersite uses artificial intelligence and graph technology to build digital twins of manufactured products. This approach enable teams to measure impacts and collaboratively identify optimal mitigation strategies and new sourcing opportunities in real-time and make better products, faster. Engineers and product teams can develop more compliant, safer, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly products faster, and get results up to 50x faster than traditional methods.
