Scope and Challenges
Staples Solutions planned to develop an aggressive growth strategy initiative for their private label, significantly improve employee efficiency and speed of innovation so they chose PTC FlexPLM because of their flexibility and comprehensive capability.
Staples Solutions 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, they 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.
Outcome and Implications
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.
"We are developing an aggressive growth strategy initiative for our private label. With the flexibility and comprehensive capability of PTC FlexPLM, we expect to significantly improve employee efficiency and speed of innovation," said Aini Chong, brand manager, Staples Solutions.
