Zero Wait-State announces new focus on PLM technologies, including expanding DesignState capablities as well as offering productized services for PLM. To support new initiatives Zero Wait-State has elevated Stephen Porter from VP of Sales to CEO and brought in Richard Haner, formerly a partner at Centerpoint Ventures, as Company Chairman.
(PRWEB) April 14, 2010 -- Zero Wait-State (see video) a leading provider of engineering collaboration solutions in the Product Lifecycle Management(PLM) sector has announced a strategic shift in their focus that will result in more robust product offerings for the industry. Over the past decade Zero Wait-State has built a sizeable customer base as a successful reseller for Parametric Technology Corporation and also as a software developer and service provider for integration solutions like DesignState®.
Zero Wait-State’s partnerships with Oracle, SolidWorks and most recently GoEngineer(see press release) have allowed them to develop products for the PLM sector and related services for integration and migration. They will now focus more on higher value solutions for their customer base by concentrating exclusively on PLM and related technology.
Zero Wait-State will remain engaged in PLM solutions from Oracle, PTC and Dassault by providing integration solutions and automation products that work with these companies’ technologies and offer packaged services that help companies that own these products to better leverage the solutions and derive greater value from ownership. These include offerings like the Oracle Accelerate Solution for Engineering Collaboration. Customers will benefit from more robust and broader software products and better defined service offerings that will limit service cost and decrease time to value.
To support this new product oriented direction Zero Wait-State has augmented their management team bringing in Richard Haner as Company Chairman. Haner has extensive industry experience at companies like Texas Instruments and Compaq and most recently as a partner at Centerpoint Ventures. Haner’s experience working with start-up companies and his industry contacts are a perfect fit for Zero Wait-State’s new direction. “I am very excited about the prospect of working with Zero Wait-State” ,said Haner. “Their relationships with companies like Oracle and Dassault and their long history with PTC put them in an ideal situation to deliver value and grow rapidly. Given the company’s past success with clients like John Deere, Dell, Raytheon, Cisco and Harris I am confident we will continue to gain momentum and recognition as an industry leader in integration and PLM solutions.”
Haner will be working closely with Stephen Porter, one of the founders of Zero Wait-State and current Vice President of Sales and Marketing. It has been determined by the Zero Wait-State board that his background and skill set is best suited for Zero Wait-State’s new direction. “Stephen’s industry experience and his ability to communicate our value proposition to our partners and clients is a critical part of our growth strategy. We need a strong advocate for our company and technology to meet our objectives” stated David Stewart, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer.
Both executives have worked together previously and have a strong rapport. “We are very fortunate to have someone of Rich’s caliber and experience join Zero Wait-State. I am very proud of what we have accomplished and grateful to former partners, employees and executives for their contributions” said Stephen Porter, new Zero Wait-State CEO. Porter continues,”Our expectation is to build on our legacy and customers to bring Zero Wait-State to the forefront of PLM organizations as a developer and solutions provider.”
