CONTACT Software is boosting its capabilities in the field of professional services by means of a strategic partnership with Robert Bosch Engineering & Business Solutions Private Ltd. (RBEI). Headquartered in Bangalore, India, the company is a fully-owned subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH and has, over many years, acquired in-depth expertise in the world of PLM. It employs a workforce of more than 17,000 in Asia, Europe and the USA.
"CONTACT Software as well as Robert Bosch Engineering & Business Solutions are leading companies in the PLM industry – and so RBEI is the perfect addition to our Global Ecosystem. The company is very well positioned internationally and is thus an ideal service partner, in particular for our global customers," says Michael Sanjay Murgai, who heads up International Sales & Partner Management at CONTACT Software. Trained experts from RBEI are already supporting CONTACT in customer projects in locations such as Germany, India and Turkey.
RBEI is an engineering technology center, where highly qualified staff develop innovative solutions for the global markets in those industries that are also CONTACT Software's primary focus, namely the automotive industry, manufacturing, high-tech and healthcare.
Against this background, the management at CONTACT sees a great deal of potential for strategic expansion of the partnership in areas such as software development and topics such as Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). "There are a number of very good points of contact and synergies between CONTACT and RBEI that we want to exploit to the benefit of our local and international customers and markets," says Murgai.
