Bangalore, May 21 2012 – The 1000-strong India development team of product lifecycle solutions leader PTC, based in Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad, has  contributed, across the board, to almost every one of its solutions in recent years -- and accounts for  of over 80 percent of the quality assurance work on the new generation product design software, Creo, says the company’s new India Country Manager, Jeffrey Wilmot. In fact, 50 – 60 percent of all QA for PTC, flows from India, he adds.
The Hyderabad-based capability flows from the acquisition in September last year, of Indian-founded 4C Solutions, Inc (4CS), a developer of warranty management and service lifecycle management software. Thanks to this added strength, PTC recently made it to leader status, among nine key vendors, in IDC’s 2012 Vendor Assessment of Worldwide Warranty Analytics. IDC said PTC's software enables manufacturers to have better visibility into product performance and warranty performance metrics in order to improve quality, reduce warranty costs and retain customers.
In a special briefing for IndiaTechOnline, soon after he took over as PTC’s India Country Manager, Wilmot pointed to one of the biggest deployments in this region – the successful completion of the first phase of a 200-seat PTC Windchill, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) implementation by the Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (CVRDE), in Avadi, Chennai for projects which design, develop and test armoured fighting vehicles and tanks. (The implementation partner was ITC Infotech).
To address the burgeoning market for product development solutions, in areas like automotive, aerospace, health and energy, PTC was set to double its workforce and considerably boost its investments in India, Wilmot revealed. --Anand Parthasarathy, from Bangalore
