Sconce Solutions subsidiary NovoPLM Inc, a platinum reseller of PTC CAD, PLM, AR, and IoT software, services, and training, has entered into a strategic partnership and asset acquisition agreement with Minnesota-based PTC reseller New Vision Engineering Solutions. The acquisition is effective October 1, 2020. NovoPLM will take over all New Vision’s PTC software license, maintenance, and subscription sales. Additionally, Sconce and New Vision have entered into a partnership whereby New Vision will be strategic provider of AR and IoT services, allowing New Vision to focus on its services offerings.
“As a preferred partner, New Vision will bring their IoT and AR expertise and solution deployment capabilities to our consulting and services offerings,” said Vern Heyer, Partner of Sconce and NovoPLM. “With companies being forced to quickly shift how they interact with both their teams and data during the Covid-19 pandemic, AR and IoT solutions that support a remote environment have been in high demand.”
NovoPLM is wholly owned by Sconce Solutions, which combines PLM, IoT, and Industry 4.0 software and services for the engineering and manufacturing industries. With this acquisition of the New Vision software business, Sconce is reinforcing its dedication to growing its relationship with PTC and building upon its long history as a PTC services provider. NovoPLM will increase its capacity in the central United States with sales resources in Minnesota and Texas.
Founded in 2001, Sconce is a leading global digital transformation solution provider and is a trusted long-time business partner of PTC with a global footprint across seven countries. It provides turnkey consulting and project implementation services for manufacturing companies using leading PLM/MCAD software in the market. Sconce provides PLM, MCAD, advisory, and engineering consulting services to worldwide businesses of all sizes, including many Fortune 500/1000 companies.
Sconce launched NovoPLM in 2015, and it has quickly grown to become one of North America’s leading PTC software resellers and services partners. Its acquisition of the New Vision software business expands its geographic reach – particularly in the central US and Texas, which the company feels will greatly benefit its clients and the CAD/CAM/PLM marketplace.
“Sconce and NovoPLM continue to deepen our commitment to our relationship with PTC and to our customers. With the addition of the New Vision customer base and sales team, we are even better positioned to leverage our extensive background with the PTC product lines,” said Brian Bezdek, Managing Partner of NovoPLM and Sconce Group. “Adding a strategic services partner such as New Vision enhances our offering capabilities for the benefit of our customers.”
“NovoPLM and Sconce have proven to be valuable Channel Partners to PTC. We believe this acquisition and expansion will provide benefit our customers and the marketplace,” said Corey Pratte, Vice President of America Channel Sales, PTC.
