Tacton and BWIR partner for global services

(PresseBox) (Stockholm, Sweden , ) Tacton Systems, global vendor of product configuration software, today announced a strategic relationship with Barry-Wehmiller International Resources (BWIR) for the global delivery of services around design automation in SolidWorks based on TactonWorks, and product configuration systems in general based on Tacton Configurator. The services will be provided by BWIR as part of the eConfiguration practice that covers sales configurators, engineering configurators and engineering automation. The partnership is intended to combine the product strength of Tacton with the services expertise of BWIR to provide solutions to enhance the competitiveness of prospective customers in the marketplace.

Announcing this strategic partnership, Mr. Senthil Kumar, Vice President and Partner of India Operations for BWIR, commented, "Our engineering and IT capabilities complemented by the Tacton products suite will enable us to expand our ability to offer world-class engineering and IT automation solutions. BWIR will also have access to training and support as required from Tacton to offer even greater value to our customers."

Vasant Bennett, President and Managing Partner of BWIR, added, "This partnership will enable BWIR to add a product-based solution to complement our existing eConfiguration, practice which centers on custom development using the SolidWorks API.
