“Ultimately, we selected FlexPLM due to its out-of-the-box capability to manage our complex product portfolio, rapid deployment approach, robust cloud architecture, and overall user friendliness. After a 14-week implementation, we have been able to go live with phase 1 on-time and on-budget and are very excited to continue expansion and collaboration with PTC on this journey.”

Staples Solutions has leveraged PTC’s Software as a Service (SaaS) offering for full solution management and hosting. ITC Infotech, a PTC Service Partner, provided consulting services to enable rapid implementation, while reducing total cost of ownership and resource impact on the internal IT department.

“During its in-depth evaluation of the PLM marketplace, Staples discovered PTC’s large community of manufacturing customers, with whom they will be able to share ideas, best practices, and strategy,” said Eric Symon, general manager, Retail Business Unit, PTC. “We look forward to supporting this global leader in fulfilling its growth plans for its renowned private label.”
