20 years .riess engineering gmbh on 01.07.2017

.riess engineering gmbh was founded on 01.07.1997 as a subsidiary of .riess gmbh.

Initially, the company was a consulting firm and a training center for PTC Pro/ENGINEER implementations and a translation partner for PTC product guides and training documents. As early as 1999, .riess engineering developed the first customer specific solution for the integration of the PTC Pro/ENGINEER CAD system into the SAP PLM. This was the foundation of the company's success today that is a strategic development partner of SAP SE since 2000 and that is responsible for the development of the SAP PLM Integration for Pro/ENGINEER. In 2014, the SAP partnership was confirmed with the development agreement for a new generation of our solution: The SAP Engineering Control Center interface to PTC Creo, also featured in the SAP price list as a SAP product. Alongside the development of SAP price list products, the company – together with .riess engineering europe gmbh that is also celebrating 10 years of existence – provided SAP PLM consulting services as well as process optimization, data migration and customer specific software solutions for SAP PLM.

In the meantime, there are thousands of companies worldwide that have acknowledged the value of SAP PLM with the integration of CAD systems and other authoring systems and utilize them efficiently. .riess engineering is currently focusing on migrating the numerous CAD desktop customers to SAP ECTR and implementing the solution for new customers. Together with our strong partner SAP, we are preparing more PLM products which are already at the stage of realization that will secure the future and the continued success of our company.

On 30.06.2017, we celebrated the company anniversary together with all .riess group staff and their families on the .riess company premises in Karlsbad.
