Following operational issues caused by Covid-19, the race for digital transformation has accelerated. “What has gone from ‘general interest, but we’ll take action later’ has turned into ‘we want it now’”, summed up David Grammer, General Manager of UK and Ireland for PTC.

Farnborough-based PTC® has experienced notable growth across its portfolio, including its Industrial IoT platform, product lifecycle management and CAD solutions for design and manufacturing companies across all industries. Thanks to its Vuforia® Expert Capture software, which allows processes to be recorded, edited in the cloud and then viewed in another location via wearable tech, such as Microsoft HoloLens, the company is also driving Augmented Reality.

Initially PTC solutions were being used by companies to teach processes to new employees, but the solution delivered unique value during the start of the pandemic when PTC worked with the VentilatorChallengeUK Consortium to train hundreds of frontline workers to produce ventilators at various sites across the country.
