Mumbai, India. October 21, 2008: Geometric Ltd (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions and technologies, and engineering services, today announced the establishment of a Metrology Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Metris, a worldwide metrology leader headquartered in Leuven, Belgium. The setting up of the Metrology CoE is in line with the company’s strategy of diversifying its engineering software development customer base, from software vendors to industrial parties who bundle cutting-edge metrology software as part of their products.
Geometric has created infrastructure for housing coordinate measuring machines (CMM), 3D scanners, robotic measuring arms and other premium metrology solutions in its Pune facility. The Company will provide services to Metris for developing and testing software that directly interfaces with its hardware systems. The infrastructure in the CoE will allow for complete closed-loop testing of software products on Metris’ hardware as well as end-to-end support and services to their customers.
Bart Van Coppenolle, CEO, Metris said, “Over the last four years, Geometric has become a very strong partner for software development. The creation of the Metrology CoE is a valuable offering for Metris and its customers, and is a step towards reinforcing our strategic relationship to provide services and support to our customers.”
Dr. Ravi Gopinath, Managing Director and CEO of Geometric Ltd. said, “This is a significant milestone in our partnership with Metris, and our evolution as a provider of software solutions for engineering and manufacturing applications. Our ability to test software applications on Metris hardware at the Metrology CoE will significantly shorten the software development lifecycle. Geometric is now uniquely positioned as a services provider for complete metrology systems in the Metris ecosystem, and the establishment of the CoE provides a strong platform for growing this business.”
Geometric has been working with Metris since January 2004. The company provides software engineering services for several software product lines in the Metris portfolio, and has developed key software enhancements that support strategic product differentiation.
