During 1998 when DesignTech Systems Ltd. was started, 3D modelling based design was a luxury that could be afforded only by big daddy's, DesignTech Systems, a pioneering PLM company, revolutionized the industry by moving Indian SME organizations to 3D modelling. The company convinced doubtful SMEs to address product development issues at initial stage by adopting 3 D design and simulation tools to attain a perfect product design on very first attempt. Unlike large PLM players that turn their backs on customers upon contract completion, DesignTech Systems handholds customers until they start deriving returns from their investments in product with 100 percent commitment. The company is also highly appreciated for its incredibly fast delivery at much more economical rate for engineering product design services.

The Pune-based company that initiated its operations in 1998 as a product distribution company in West India has been consistently expanding its offerings to include designing services and PLM training that covers every stage of product design lifecycle.DesignTech Systems competitive product design & PLM implementation services are available on all the design and simulation platforms like Nx, CATIA, Pro-E, SolidWorks, Nastran, Hyperworks & Ansys.The company pretty soon launched its offices in Bombay, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Jalandhar, Calcutta, Vadodara and Chennai, while having four training centers including Pune, Nasik and Hyderabad. DesignTech has subsidiaries in U.S and Hong Kong and associate offices in Canada and Europe. Now DesignTech Systems have 400 plus active customers to whom it renders services to and over 2000 customers who have benefited from DesignTech's products; with near to 100 percent repeat order rate.

DesignTech's prowess has been rewarded by about 40 awards including coveted Maharashtra Government IT Award, NASSCOM's top 50 Emerging Companies and IDG – Channel World Premiere 100 Award. The company has also been honoured with numerous top reseller awards and it is the only platinum partner of Siemens PLM in India.

DesignTech Systems derives over 25 percent of service business from North America, Europe and Hong Kong and it also works with several huge enterprises including Mahindra & Mahindra, L&T and Escort among others. "Most SMEs grapple to attract, train and retain talents on specialized services. We enable them to act judiciously by identifying where these investments can make direct impact. In case customers couldn't acquire such talents, we help them by providing our manpower to maintain continuity," says Vikas Khanvelkar, M.D, DesignTech Systems Ltd.
