Aras Expands Global Operations to France


Expansion Supports Growing Demand for Aras PLM Solutions Worldwide

ANDOVER, Mass. and MUNICH, Germany – December 15, 2014 – Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, today announced expanded operations in Europe with the opening of its French office in Lyon, France. The expansion is in response to growing demand for the Aras Innovator suite of PLM solutions from companies with operations in France. Stephane Guignard is the new Vice President of Aras France. Mr. Guignard was formerly founder of PCO Technologies, a leading French PLM systems integrator acquired by Accenture.

“Aras Innovator’s unique model-based architecture and subscription business model enable companies to deploy PLM across the enterprise much faster and cost effectively than was previously possible,” said Stephane Guignard, VP Aras France. “Aras enables end-to-end digital process support that’s been unachievable or unaffordable with the other major PLM systems.”

“The response to Aras has been strong in Europe, and we are pleased to increase our investment in France,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Companies throughout the region are recognizing the value of the Aras platform and solutions because our customers are significantly reducing the risk and cost of their global PLM deployment while enjoying a true partnership with their provider.”

Aras customers will share their implementation experiences at the upcoming ACE 2015 France conference in Paris on 3 February 2015. The conference, hosted by Microsoft, will introduce Aras Innovator to the French market. For details, agenda and registration visit www.aras.com/ACE2015France
