Linx-AS Unveils New “Vision” at National Event
Orlando, FL – May 14, 2006 – Envision PLM™—a strategic approach to Product Lifecycle Management leveraging the SAP platform—was the focus of Linx-AS messaging at ASUG+SAPPHIRE 2006. The new tag line and company identity was launched amid the week-long event, which attracted an estimated audience of over 13,000 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Linx-AS (the “AS” denoting Application Solutions) introduced its PLM Vision™ Methodology which is an assessment and planning engagement that takes two weeks or less to complete. The PLM Vision Methodology benchmarks organizations against critical business processes (or process groups), such as New Product Development & Introduction or Regulatory & Compliance. The assessment factors in organizational IT pain points, current & projected landscapes, industry best practices, and resource requirements, resulting in a strategic vision comprised of practical, incremental projects. Each project in the vision has stage-gate ROI requirements to meet so that the ensuing project can proceed.
The New Product Development & Introduction track evaluates businesses in five principal areas:
- Product Data Management
- Global Specification Management
- Formula Management
- Innovation Management
- Project Portfolio Management
Regulatory & Compliance visioning focuses on Environment, Health & Safety, with assessment focusing on:
- Product Stewardship
- Hazard Communications
- Worker/Workplace Safety
- Transportation Safety
- Waste Management
Accompanying the new approach is a new look. The redesigned Linx-AS logo depicts core blocks of technology arranged to support innovation.
“Innovation is the center of profitability and the primary differentiator in successful companies today,” explains Jeff Frye, President of Linx-AS. “To compete and ultimately succeed, IT needs to align with business strategy, streamlining workflow to create a technical environment built around innovation.”
