Apriso Celebrates 20 Years in Business

March 12, 2013
LONG BEACH, CA--Apriso, a provider of global manufacturing software, celebrates its 20-year anniversary. The company was originally incorporated as CIM Vision International on March 10, 1993, and has since expaned to more than 45 countries.
 
Global manufacturers must operate across highly diverse, dynamic manufacturing models and operating environments. From an Information Technology (IT) perspective, manufacturers typically operate thousands of disparate IT applications that may or may not work well with other systems, plants or shop floor operators. At the same time, the global economy has necessitated the need to work better and faster across geographies, cultures and systems with greater agility. 
 
Apriso provides platform-based IT solutions designed to simplify highly complex operational environments. With Apriso’s solutions, global manufacturers share processes, data and intelligence on a global scale while connecting planning and design applications to shop floor machinery and equipment. By bringing planning, design and execution applications together, manufacturers can operate with greater visibility, control and synchronization across their operations. 
 
“It is amazing to see the growth that has occurred over the past 20 years, starting with our humble beginnings back in the late 1980s," says Chris Will, co-founder and chief technology officer at Apriso. "Our vision has been spot on with regards to the technology selected and the partnerships we have focused on to deliver the highest value solutions for manufacturers,” “Momentum is now with us, given the increased pressure and complexities global manufacturers now face. As we look to the future, it is an exciting time to be part of such a dynamic and growing market.”
