PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) has announced that the US Navy has selected PTC´s Windchill® product lifecycle management (PLM) Software as a Service (SaaS) offering to support its Model Based Product Support (MBPS) digital transformation initiatives, which is aimed at improving the Navy´s operational readiness, the company said.
The project, launching in PTC´s fourth fiscal quarter, will enable the US Navy to unify legacy systems and a myriad of repositories, and, ultimately, to support more than fifteen thousand users, an expansive supplier network, and a vast fleet of ships and submarines. Following an extensive evaluation process, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), a branch of the US Navy, selected Windchill over a broad range of other solutions. Key determinants in NAVSEA´s selection included the technological prowess, certified cloud infrastructure, powerful collaboration capabilities, and comprehensive workflow of the Windchill SaaS solution.
The Windchill SaaS solution for the US Navy will provide FEDRAMP and Department of Defense Impact Level 5 security compliance and enable the Navy to optimize lifecycle costs and maximize operational availability.
PTC enables global manufacturers to realize double-digit impact through technology, designed for all the ways they work.
