About Eight Sleep

Eight Sleep is a sleep fitness company that has developed the only mattress that actively regulates temperature and analyzes heart respiratory rates, movement, and sleep phases to monitor sleep quality. Sleep data is sent to the company’s app, which analyzes the information and then offers suggestions to improve a user’s sleep fitness. With each new product Eight Sleep is helping people significantly improve the quality and duration of their sleep.

The Challenge

Eight Sleep faces an array of engineering and supply chain challenges as they manage design in the US and manufacturing overseas. For the engineering team, BOM Management and Engineering Change Management become increasingly difficult with a distributed team. And with a high percentage of procured parts sourced from suppliers the team at Eight Sleep must manage an array of different stakeholders in different locations. To stay on track the team needed a PLM tool that was easy to implement, easy to use and that was effective at increasing communication and transparency across a truly distributed team.

“Duro strikes a great balance between achieving fast results and having the depth of tools to scale”
– Paul Katz, SVP of Hardware Engineering

The Solution

With Duro, Eight Sleep was able to implement a PLM system in a matter of days that not only allowed the team to easily adopt data management best practices, but also break down the walls of communication that had been built up across their distributed team. Furthermore, Duro’s structured workflows, event logs, parametric search, history tables, and roll-back capability now ensures traceability of who did what, how, and why.
