Technology Services Industry Peers Honor PTC's Commitment to Continuous Improvement in Service and Support

NEEDHAM, Mass. - Nov. 15, 2010 - PTC® (NASDAQ: PMTC), The Product Development Company®, today announced it has been named the winner of the Fall 2010 Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) STAR Award for Overall Operational Excellence in Technology Professional Services. The award was announced October 20 at the Technology Services World conference in Las Vegas. 

The award recognizes PTC for achieving exceptional organizational maturity across all areas of the professional services business. These include developing people, building customer relationships, and delivering high quality services to customers.  

With more than 20 years experience in implementing complex product development systems, PTC Global Services believes that a successful customer program occurs through a strategic partnership that is focused on achieving customer value. PTC's Value Centric Engagement approach enables customers to maximize their product development investments by building a roadmap to value that leverages industry best practices, the appropriate governance, a shared delivery model, and a value scorecard that measures client specific metrics for success. This approach helps customers achieve real, measurable value from their PLM (product lifecycle management) implementations. This concept of realized value underlies PTC's delivery strategy which utilizes its proprietary Realized Value Platform (RVP), a comprehensive set of field-tested intellectual property configured to meet customer specific implementation needs and to deliver an efficient, high-quality PLM implementation. 

"Customer value is the center of everything we deliver," said Marc Diouane, executive vice president global services, PTC.  "Our expertise, capabilities and capacity enable PTC customers to realize value through the full lifecycle of deploying an enterprise PLM solution.  We work to create a partnership with our customers to improve product development performance through technology-enabled process improvements.  The TSIA STAR award is validation that PTC is committed to customer service and support." 

"The here-and-now realities facing today's services organizations present a multitude of challenges and PTC has clearly demonstrated its high-level commitment to delivering world-class results," said J.B. Wood, CEO, TSIA.
