Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
Averna, the premier manufacturing solution provider to electronics and communications OEMs, announced today that it has become a member of PTC's Channel Advantage Program at the Silver tier level, enabling Averna to become a full-service, single-point-of-contact for PTC products and services. PTC is a leading Boston-based provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services. As a PTC Channel Advantage Reseller, Averna will provide solution integration and support services for PTC’s Windchill® software.
Electronics manufacturers have always conducted testing on their products but analyzing the results has typically been a difficult and often a manual task. In addition, today’s supply chain has become truly global – with parts sourced from many locations around the world. Under these challenging and highly distributed conditions, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) need to increase quality and reduce costs at every stage of the product lifecycle. For this reason, Averna sought a PLM partner that has a substantial presence in its primary target market – the electronics sector.
“Averna’s mission is to be the leading player in the electronics supply chain and the product design lifecycle by helping OEMs improve their productivity and product quality,” said Richard Maltais, Averna’s Chief Operating Officer. “Adding integration services for PTC’s Windchill will allow us to expand our portfolio of products and services beyond manufacturing test and quality management – into the first phases of our customers’ product lifecycles.”
“We are pleased to add Averna to the PTC Channel Advantage Program,” said John Condon, Vice President, Americas Channel Sales, PTC. “PTC is committed to helping our channel partners build successful and profitable businesses around PTC solutions by providing many programs, incentives and resources to support their initiatives. The addition of PTC’s Windchill PLM solution strengthens Averna’s portfolio of solutions and enables Averna to better serve its customers.”
Averna’s suite of products and services allows OEMs to collect, aggregate and leverage data captured from manufacturing test systems, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, manufacturing execution systems (MES), quality management systems, and repair and service systems. Linking all this information with the data taken from PLM systems will give OEMs complete traceability over the entire product lifecycle and allow them to build the right level of business intelligence, helping Averna’s and PTC’s customers to accelerate new product introductions, and to increase volume, quality and profitability.
