What Polarion Customers Are Saying

Customer Success: Küster Automotive GmbH

Customer Succes Story: Küster Automotive GmbH produces components for the automotive industry. The challenges confronting the teams at Küster were typical of almost every Polarion customer operating in industries in which compliance with some standard is mandated and/or desirable. Küster needed to achieve SPICE Level 2 and the company’s OEM customers required exchange of requirements in RIF (Requirements Interchange Format). Küster found Polarion’s application lifecycle solutions ideally suited to their needs. The all-inclusive solution, and the web-based architecture would save on both adoption and maintenance costs.

“The ability to easily read OEM requirements, and manage all of their and our requirements centralized online, is of great benefit to us.”

– Christian Posluschni
Teamleader Development Electronics / Software Development


Customer Succes Story: Creators of Leading Neuromodulation Device
Customer Success: Küster Automotive GmbHMedical device companies continue to face various challenges during the development process to deliver high quality safety-critical products. Included replacing costly legacy silos as well as replacing Microsoft® Word with a more efficient solution for requirements management and traceability. Resulting in a more sought after more modern and encompassing product lifecycle solution.

After evaluating several vendor solutions over a two year period, they made the decision to go with Polarion Software for its customer service, willingness to work with them, and many unique solution advantages, helping create a much more scalable and collaborative product development user base than originally envisioned. Polarion is now used quite substantially across the whole organization, for the following disciplines: systems engineering, software and firmware development, electrical and mechanical engineering.
