Boston Engineering becomes a VAR for PTC’s engineering software tools--Pro/ENGINEER Mechanical CAD and Windchill Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)--to offer clients better access to collaboration tools and product development services

In a move designed to help the company offer more complete solutions to its clients, Boston Engineering Corporation, a Waltham-based outsourced engineering services firm, today announced an agreement with PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC) to become an authorized reseller in the PTC Channel Advantage™ Program, for their Pro/ENGINEER® Mechanical CAD and Windchill® Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software tools.

Pro/ENGINEER is a 3D product design solution that helps companies develop detailed, intuitive and realistic digital product representations. Windchill is a product data management and project management solution that helps companies control product development data and enable internal and external product development collaboration. “At Boston Engineering, our distinction has always been to offer Total System Responsibility™ (TSR) approaches and thinking. Becoming a channel partner for PTC is taking this a step further,” said Mark Smithers, vice president and COO of Boston Engineering. “Not only can we help customers develop engineering products, we can provide installation and education for the tools that will help them get there.”

By becoming a value-added reseller (VAR), Boston Engineering is following a successful model used by PTC over the last few years. "Our engineering staff has years of experience using PTC tools to develop solutions for our clients,” said Smithers, “Becoming a VAR is simply another way we can help our clients succeed with their development objectives.

The PTC agreement doesn’t limit Boston Engineering’s right to use other engineering tools. “We will continue to be non-biased and use the tools that are best suited to each client’s needs,” says Smithers. “We are experts in a number of other CAD and database applications, including open source solutions, and we will continue to use them.”

The Boston Engineering VAR program will be headed by Len Sparks, a program manager and mechanical engineer who has been with the company for seven years. The company is actively searching for additional sales and applications engineers to expand the team and channel program.
