Lectra’s 2017-2019 strategic roadmap constitutes the decisive initial stage in the company’s evolution over the next 10 years. The roadmap lays the foundations that will prepare Lectra to take advantage of the full potential of its new offers for Industry 4.0 starting in 2020.
A BROADER RANGE OF OFFERS FOR INDUSTRY 4.0
In order to help its customers implement the principles of Industry 4.0, Lectra has made the decision to rapidly increase its investments toward designing and developing new Industry 4.0 offers. These new offers will form new product lines to meet the needs of the company’s customers or will complement existing software and cutters. Lectra is thus preserving prior investments made by its customers because the new solutions will be compatible with all cutters sold since 2007, as well as with almost all software, in the latest versions.
DEPLOYMENT OF LECTRA’S 4.0 OFFERS
In 2018, Lectra began launching its 4.0 offers in a few pilot countries. These offers will gradually become available in all countries in 2019 and will continue to be enriched in the years to come.
INCREASED INVESTMENTS DEDICATED TO THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF OFFERS
In 2018, Lectra devoted nearly 11% of its revenues to R&D in order to deliver its new offers for Industry 4.0 at a sustained pace while continuing to enrich its existing offers.
