SAN JOSE, Calif., April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Agile Software Corporation (NASDAQ: AGIL), a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Freescale Semiconductor, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors has selected Agile 9.2 to help increase global collaboration and visibility across their product network.

"We needed a solution that would enable us to increase our collaboration and visibility with our 7,000 users across our global offices in a fast and efficient way without decreasing quality," said Sam Coursen, vice president and Chief Information Officer, Freescale Semiconductor. "Agile was selected after several months of intensive evaluation of Agile and other PLM suppliers. In the end, Agile's solutions had most of what we needed in an out-of-the-box configurable application."

Freescale is based in Austin, Texas, and has design, research and development, manufacturing, and sales operations in more than 30 countries. It is one of the world's largest semiconductor companies, with annual sales of $6.4 billion (USD).

The Agile 9.2 solutions that Freescale selected are Agile Product Collaboration and Agile Engineering Collaboration. Agile Product Collaboration supports a distributed manufacturing capability that integrates directly into leading management systems, such as SAP systems, and enables visibility and management of site-specific product information across global operations and extended supply networks. Agile Engineering Collaboration includes integrations to leading MCAD, ECAD, software, firmware, and desktop publishing applications; it also provides comprehensive design collaboration and visualization support.

"With manufacturing and sales offices in over 30 offices around the world, Freescale needed a global PLM solution that increased collaboration and visibility," says Jay Fulcher, Agile president and CEO. "With our broad suite of best in class PLM solutions, market leaders like Freescale are able to do so in addition to driving innovation and improving cost efficiencies throughout the product lifecycle to remain ahead of the competition."
