Zero Wait-State Announces Preferred Partnership with Perception Software to Unlock the Power Inside Oracle Agile PLM

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zero Wait-State today announced a new preferred partnership with Perception Software, creating a unique family of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services and solutions that allow Oracle Agile PLM customers the ability to unlock and reuse all of the product data their PLM system maintains. The partnership will leverage the strengths of both companies to provide easy-to-maintain-and-upgrade PLM system process automations and customizations. This gives users the opportunity to tailor their PLM system to work the way they need it to work for their specific business, which greatly expands Agile PLM’s capabilities received out-of-the-box.

Zero Wait-State will provide implementation services and utilize two of their exclusive products – AttributeState and RestState – alongside Perceptions’s enhanced AgileXPLORER to address their customers’ toughest business issues around innovation, cost, quality and time to market. Dries D’hooghe, Vice President of Products and Services for Zero Wait-State said, “Given the direction of our current product development initiatives around enhancing PLM through customization tools that are easy to use and not hard coded, the new version of AgileXPLORER is a great fit for our clients, providing additional ROI on their Agile PLM investment.”

Stephen Porter, founder and CEO of Zero Wait-State, commented, “It’s exciting that two organizations can align for the best interest of their clients. Extending the life of their PLM tool is challenging, especially as their organizations move to a hybrid on premise and cloud PLM solution. With the lack of common standards around the “Internet of Things” (IOT), we’re going to see a fragmented industry that hinders the movement from achieving PLM’s full potential. A partnership like this becomes increasingly critical for our customers’ success.”

Perception Software, which of note was recently acquired as a business unit of Altium Software, is equally enthusiastic about the new partnership. Joe Dalton, founder and CEO of Perception Software, added, “We are excited about adding AgileXplorer to ZWS's suite of offerings to the Oracle/Agile installed base. The ability to improve and extend the ROI of a company's Agile PLM investment is very attractive, and this partnership will help deliver that."
