Siemens Took Over Vizendo
On June 1, Siemens acquired the Swedish service and software company Vizendo AB, based in Gothenburg. Vizendo offers virtual operator training for the automotive industry. This enables industrial companies to shorten training times and bring new products to market faster.
The virtual operator training (VOT) service, which has been offered since 2004, works directly with the customer's own CAD/PLM data. More than 70 percent of Vizendo customers use this data with the Siemens Teamcenter solution. The focus is on production training, maintenance and repair training as well as instruction and monitoring of qualification. In addition to the automotive industry, customers from the aviation industry, among others, also use the software.
Vizendo AB is a subsidiary of Siemens AB, Sweden, and its 23 software developers and service engineers are to be integrated into the Customer Services business unit of Digital Industries.
