| News alert
Paris, La Defense, April 15 2013 - The French subsidiary of the Capgemini Group, one of the global leaders in consulting, technology and outsourcing, and PTC, an editor of technology solutions designed to optimise product development processes and services, have agreed a partnership in the field of PLM. The partnership formalises and strengthens collaboration between the two companies on the growing market of PLM, especially in France, UK and Germany. Capgemini and PTC are now able to offer integration of all or part of the range of Windchill family products and services provided by PTC.

For Capgemini, this partnership will complement its offers in consulting, integration, migration and security of PLM projects for sectors such as the aerospace, defence and automotive industries. It will also give the Group an advantage when it comes to targeting industries or sectors with more recent PLM systems – for example, transportation, civil engineering or the pharmaceutical industry. Capgemini wants to accompany its clients throughout their product lifecycles, by providing a full range of value-added services. This partnership marks the culmination of the Group’s investment in PTC technologies over many years.

Ludovic Rota, who heads the PLM centre of excellence for Capgemini France explains: “Each day, our national centre of excellence provides solutions to clients who are extending the scope of their PLM systems to all their business functions, with the aim of offering new services to their own customers. This partnership with PTC confirms our ambition to become the number one in the market for PLM integration solutions for the entire industrial sector.”

Our development strategy is based on reaching very ambitious sales targets for our business solutions, explains Marc Diouane, PTC’s Executive Vice President of Global Services and Partners. “Our company is one of the market leaders in PLM, and offers high value-added solutions that enable our clients to optimise their product development processes and services. This involves covering the entire lifecycle, from design to recycling through to the end of a product’s life.”

A combination of PTC’s expertise in PLM solutions with Capgemini’s offers around project security, services, IT consulting and migration, provides mutual Capgemini and PTC’s clients with the opportunity to leverage maximum value from this new market offering.
