Siemen's software unit has recently forged a partnership with Frontal Software to help industrial customers adopt product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions faster given the synergies between the two companies.
Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a global provider of PLM software and services, said the partnership will specifically help PLM customers in India.
Siemens said that with PLM being more widely accepted in the manufacturing sector, it is tapping the expertise of Frontal Software, a provider of IT solutions in India which has a PLM practice. Siemens said manufacturers, in particular, consider investing in PLM with its capabilities for product development collaboration and with the importance of time-to-market.
"Siemens PLM Software remains focused, not only on developing innovative solutions for our clients, but on creating partnerships that help streamline clients' access to those technologies. Frontal Software's industry domain knowledge and vast expertise in providing information solutions to manufacturers will provide significant business value to our clients," said Suman Bose, managing director, Siemens PLM Software, India.
Frontal Software said its dedicated PLM practice offers end-to-end solutions to help companies manage their engineering processes more efficiently. Siemens said Frontal Software's industry and process expertise complements Siemens' comprehensive portfolio of PLM solutions.
"We are extending our partnership over the past 25 years with Siemens to include PLM, CAE (computer-aided engineering) and digital manufacturing," said P. S. Sridharan, CEO, Frontal Software. "We are committed to building solutions that help companies manage diverse engineering and production facilities, drive productivity to achieve business goals and enable knowledge enrichment to constantly improve processes. These solutions will help customers eliminate inefficiencies anywhere in their engineering, manufacturing and project execution cycles, and better leverage their past experience."
Siemens said the partnership with Frontal Software will help their customers maximise their investment in PLM. Siemens said it will continue to work with partners to further their PLM strategy in line with their customers' transformation agenda.
