INCAT professionals have roles in bringing key models to market
Jaguar is launching its two high-performance flagships, the XFR and a revamped XKR at the show. Both reportedly will come with a new 510-hp, 500-lb-ft, supercharged V-8.
INCAT has been a tier 1 supplier to Jaguar for more than five years. In August 2008, the Company announced it was awarded a managed services contract with Jaguar Land Rover through 2013. Under the terms of the contract, INCAT is the preferred services partner in two key Product Development IT process roles that involve a team of approximately 250 INCAT staff located both onshore and offshore.
Warren Harris, INCAT CEO, said at the time of the August announcement, "This engagement with Jaguar Land Rover is a significant expansion of a long-standing and valued relationship between our organizations. The expertise that INCAT brings to this engagement is two-fold. First, there is our dominant position in product development IT services. Secondly -- and most importantly -- is our intimate knowledge of Jaguar Land Rover including its market, its products and its business objectives."
INCAT also provides Jaguar Land Rover specialist Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and engineering related services, with about 70 PLM consultants and engineers supporting Jaguar Land Rover projects on-site
Ford, another long-time INCAT automotive OEM client, had two models nominated for North American Car and Truck of the Year honors -- the Ford Flex and the Ford F-150 Pickup, respectively. The F-150 won NAIAS Truck of the Year honors on Sunday, January 11. The F-150 has been a top seller for more than 30 years was completely redesigned for the current model year. The Flex crossover is Ford's 7-8 passenger SUV replacement. INCAT professionals were involved in the digital engineering and data management necessary to bring both these industry leaders to market.
