By     AUGUST 7, 2015

There's less than 4 weeks left until Accelerate 2015, our 2nd annual PLM conference with a focus on the Future of Making Things. Each week we've introduced one of the customer-led breakout sessions available to attendees – you can check out the first four here.

SureTank, Ltd. has been in business for 20 years, and is a leading manufacturer of Cargo Carrying Units for the offshore oil industry. As a global supplier, with manufacturing and sales offices all over the world, they face the challenge of managing their engineering and quality processes, when employees are spread across the globe. Cloud PLM helped them to move from a manual re-entry process, to a single system that can be used from any location.

Learn firsthand how they were able to convince both management and internal teams that implementing a PLM solution could solve a lot of their day-to-day business problems. Also, how they have continued to expand their usage of PLM 360 and get internal buy-in.
