飛利浦的使命在於透過有意義的創新改善人們的生活，若要實現此一願景，就必須串連企業中的各個單位，將頂尖想法迅速化為產品。飛利浦使用單一 PLM 平臺進行全球轉型，希望無論是工程、銷售、服務或行銷團隊，只要一有需求，即可存取適當的產品資訊。
Philips is in the middle of a business transformation, where the focus of the business is on the customer, rather than the product. With over 100,000 employees worldwide, helping to generate over $30B in annual revenue, Philips must maintain close coordination within and across their various business units.
Collaboration is an easy concept to advocate within any modern business. But enabling true collaboration requires change across teams, processes, and technology. Through their common PLM program, each business unit – Healthcare, Lighting, and Consumer Lifestyle – is able to actively share product ideas, designs, and product development processes, thereby reducing the time it takes to get new products to market.
Beyond innovation also lie the challenges of serving customers across continents, each with their own specific product requirements. Managing product variants is an essential process that is made more efficient by their PLM journey; enabling engineers to find the part and product designs they need to innovate and improve.
Leaders at Philips know that the company’s mission to improve people’s lives requires a collaborative approach to innovation and product development. Fulfilling that mission is what drives everyone at Philips to achieve product advantage in the global marketplace.
