Press Release: ACS to Build upon Iowa Governor’s Manufacturing Initiatives

Des Moines, IA, February, 13, 2019 Associated Computer Systems, LTD (ACS) today announced that it has joined the partner network of PTC, a leading innovator of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) solutions.

In 2017 Iowa’s Governor announced the “Year of Manufacturing,” a focused initiative to provide resources to enhance Iowa manufacturers and globally promote their strengths. ACS has chosen to partner with PTC, a globally recognized subject-matter expert on IoT, AR, and analytics, whose expertise will complement ACS’ 39 years of experience providing innovative solutions to Midwest businesses.

Partnering with PTC will enable ACS’ clients to gain new insights and enhance efficiency through the use of real-time data and analytics on equipment that has historically been difficult to monitor.  The implications of this technology go far beyond manufacturing – it may cross into agriculture, transportation, healthcare, retail, and other industries vital to Iowa’s economy.

“Revenue loss due to process inefficiencies and defective products is a large concern for Iowa organizations,” said Denny Fisher, Chief Client Experience Officer, ACS. “The solutions and expertise we can now provide as a member of the PTC Partner Network pairs seamlessly with the Governor’s call for subject-matter experts to help elevate Iowa manufacturers and other organizations on a global scale.”

We’re pleased to welcome ACS to the PTC Partner Network,” said Kerry Grimes, Divisional Vice President, PTC Partner Network. “Our carefully-selected network of partners allows us to leverage market expertise and deliver the levels of product and service quality synonymous with the PTC brand.

A joint launch party will be held February 27, 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm at ACS’ headquarters in Urbandale, Iowa, to kick-off the relationship and showcase the innovative solutions ACS and PTC will soon bring to the Iowa landscape.
