IMAGINiT Technologies Launches Dedicated Product Lifecycle Management Team

Experienced Autodesk PLM 360 Advisor Team Provides Consulting, Implementation and Support to Manufacturers Across North America

August 26, 2015 | Owings Mills, Md

Rand Worldwide (OTCBB: RWWI), a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, today announced that its IMAGINiT Technologies division is introducing a new Strategic Accounts Team. This dedicated group will focus on providing product lifecycle management (PLM) and data management solutions to manufacturers across the United States and Canada.
CIMdata, an independent authority on the PLM market, estimates that there is potential $16B market for manufacturers who are not currently leveraging PLM systems in their product development processes. With the advent of a cost effective, short time-to-deployment PLM system like Autodesk PLM 360, manufacturers who previously shied away from the traditional complex and costly PLM tools, are now presented with an opportunity to leverage PLM process gains.  
“Autodesk PLM 360 cloud solution with short deployment times has opened the door to an array of manufacturers who previously found PLM systems cost prohibitive,” says Tim Johnson, senior vice president, IMAGINiT Technologies. “We have put together a dedicated team of highly experienced professionals that focus purely on helping these manufacturers enhance their product development processes by implementing a PLM system. Our team of experts is uniquely positioned to help manufacturers who are new to PLM plan, customize and implement successful PLM strategies.”
IMAGINiT’s dedicated PLM team helps manufacturing organizations in aerospace, industrial machinery, building products and other industries to capitalize on the benefits of PLM and data management. These manufacturing organizations are gaining the benefits of an affordable, modular PLM solution along with customizable implementation services and support from IMAGINiT’s highly knowledgeable PLM industry experts.
Dedicated Strategic Account Team for Manufacturing
IMAGINiT’s dedicated team of sales and technical staff, led by Scott Hale, vice president of business development, have achieved Autodesk’s prestigious PLM 360 Advisor Status in both the U.S. and Canada. With a comprehensive knowledge of Autodesk PLM 360 software and a track record of successful implementations, these experts help manufacturers implement a PLM strategy that manages their product lifecycle from concept to retirement.
