Creating value for customers
Lectra supports its customers’ growth and their quest for operational excellence in a highly competitive global environment. Companies must today respond to a continually evolving demand, differentiate themselves by favoring creativity, improve productivity and reduce both costs and time-to-market, while guaranteeing quality. To satisfy these imperatives, Lectra is called upon to intervene at increasingly strategic levels in major global accounts and to support customers’ change strategies—on the strength of a unique combination of expertise in their businesses, advanced technologies and change management.
Lectra’s positioning is unique. Its capacity to combine equipment, software and services—rather than merely juxtaposing them—has enabled the company to create a global offer which exceeds the value of that of single solutions. This approach is built around the implementation of lean strategies through proven change management methodologies, while integrating best practices in customers’ businesses. Proven success in integrating these components is the foundation of Lectra’s ambitious industrial strategy.
