PARIS, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The Altran Group launches Lifecycle Experience, a new global solution combining the three key processes driving competitivity: Innovation (people to idea), Industrialisation of products and services (idea to product) and Distribution (product to delivery). Altran has set up a network of expertise centres throughout Europe and Asia which are served by a dedicated team of 1,600 dedicated engineers equipped to tackle the most complex projects.
The emergence of new products and services, forms of organisation, processes, tools and partnerships, as well as the quest for operational excellence and innovation require adopting a systematic approach that is perfectly coordinated. Against a backdrop of a rapidly changing economic and technical environment, companies seeking to maintain their competitive edge and leadership positions must be able to adapt to the rapid transformations taking place in their sectors of activity and reinvent themselves.
"Lifecycle Experience" is the term coined by Altran to convey the essence of its novel approach. Designed to reinvent all or some of the corporate processes by adopting a global vision of product and services life-cycles, Altran's innovative offering provides customised, end-to-end solutions embodying Innovation Management, Product Design & Systems Engineering, Supply Chain & Manufacturing, Distribution & Support Services and Product Lifecycle Management.
For an approach such as this, the key to success lies in optimising the relations that employees, suppliers, partners and clients have with the products and services they invent, design, manufacture, distribute or use, as well as the processes they implement and the tools they use.
In line with the 2012-2015 Strategic Plan launched by Group CEO and Chief Executive, Mr Philippe Salle, the deployment of Altran's packaged solutions is geared to step up the growth of the Group in its Industries and to help address cross-industry challenges in all sectors. Following on from the March 2013 launch of its Intelligent Systems Solution for new-generation embedded and critical systems that are highly connected, powerful and complex, Altran's Lifecycle Experience Solution provides clients in all industries packaged offers based on a unique approach to operational excellence and innovation.
Having developed a general understanding of the issues in most industries, as well as an in-depth knowledge of the technical and industrial challenges, best practices and value-chain activities, the Group is able to provide a unique global solution that ensures the functioning of highly collaborative processes across the entire business ecosystem.
