3D CAD Translation Developer, Indian Engineering firm now Global Partners
Southfield, MI – September 18, 2006 – Elysium Inc., a leading global provider of multi-CAD enabling software, announced today its new strategic partnership with Mahindra Engineering, part of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, and one of the largest technical firms in India. In a recent partnership agreement, the two firms agreed to share technical expertise, software products, and business opportunities.
Elysium’s precision CAD data translation tools enable an end-user to migrate from one CAD system to another, when needed. These migration events are due to an end-user switching CAD systems or engaging in an acquisition of a company that uses a different CAD system. End-users generally know of Elysium’s capability through its excellent 3D data translation performance that is used worldwide by manufacturers of every size and type. The company also has extensive industry partnerships with other PLM companies, such as Autodesk, CoCreate, Dassault Systèmes, IBM, PTC, SolidWorks, and UGS.
“With our in-depth knowledge of CAD data translation issues, we have typically teamed with industry partners, while maintaining our expertise over the 3D data translation and migration tools,” comments Elysium COO Ken Tashiro. “Now, however, end-users are requesting Elysium to provide complete end-to-end migration responsibility, which would extend to both on-site services, such as project management, translation support, and CAD to PDM check-in or release work to off-site projects, that require subject matter expertise, for example, CAD data re-mastering and CAD quality checking. This partnership agreement introduces Mahindra Engineering as a means to provide an end-to-end services model.”
“We are very optimistic about the new agreement with Mahindra Engineering,” Tashiro says. “This will offer substantial benefits for both companies, allowing expanded services to Elysium customers, as well as provide the Mahindra organization, and its clients, the best in translation technologies.”
“Our partnership with Elysium allows our organization to gain best in class tools in the CAD data translation arena,” comments Mahindra Vice President Viresh Doshi. “Today, Mahindra is the largest UGS user in India and continues to grow. We have teamed with Elysium to provide our customers a solution for migration and collaboration across multi-CAD environments.”
