A consolidated CAD strategy – one that unites all in-house design work under one CAD package – can save companies a ton on IT, support and hardware. Since PTC Creo was introduced in 2011, many companies have gone from having multiple CAD software solutions to using PTC Creo for all of their design work. The companies are in various industries and countries around the world, but they all have one thing in common: a need for streamlined solutions.

Here are six companies that use PTC Creo as their exclusive CAD solution:

Sony Ericsson (Multimedia devices): A company with customers around the world, Sony Ericsson’s numerous design sites once used a variety of different CAD tools. When they decided to standardize their global platforms for mechanical and electronic design, they turned to PTC Creo.

FSG Design (Product design): To satisfy their expansive client list and complex design requirements, FSG Design needed to standardize their team on one CAD tool. PTC Creo’s compatibility with nearly all of their clients’ files made it their preferred choice.

ARTGOS (Toilet seats): ARTGOS wanted a faster time-to-market, greater innovation opportunities, and reduced design time. PTC Creo Parametric provided all the capabilities required to stay competitive.

Britax (Car seats): In order to adhere to strict car seat safety requirements, Britax decided to unify its design team on PTC Creo. Now, they’re able to create better designs more efficiently.

Gromin (Packaging for cosmetics): Gromin’s custom packaging designs are essential to Eastern Europe’s cosmetics industry. By standardizing on PTC Creo, Gromin was able to reduce the time it took to get client approvals by 25%.

NTM Wheels (Specialty car rims): NTM’s catalog is the go-to source for car collectors looking for high quality rims. Consolidating on PTC Creo gave NTM the customization options their customers wanted, and decreased development time by 50%.

Despite their differences, each company had the same outcome: quicker time-to-market for products, faster design reuse, increased creativity in concept design stages, better collaboration, and an uptick in business.
