Jerry Held

GSI Group

We feel we have a partner in EAC, not just a consultant. EAC has learned our business and current processes and made recommendations for improvement where necessary. GSI Group is very satisfied with the services EAC has provided.

The Vehicle Service

The Alliance program from EAC has enabled us to maintain a stable Windchill PDMLink environment with a high level of uptime. There has only been a couple of times when we needed help, during those times they responded quickly and were up and running within no time. They are a team of technically competent professionals and are easy to work with.

Myron Pundt

VP of Engineering, ALM Positioners

When we started down the road with EAC looking at Windchill, our goal was to streamline the process so we could get automatic loads into our ERP system. EAC was instrumental in driving us to the right solution.

Brian Paulin

President Engine Power, Inc.

EAC has defiantly impacted our growing abilities. As we gain production we need to be more efficient. EAC has allowed us to do that by tracking our products easier. Before, we were using folders to track them manually. We’d lose control, somebody would modify it, and you wouldn’t know. EAC has allowed us to really dive in and keep track of that to reduce the amount of people required to handle that much information.

Jim K

Engineer, FlexMation

A report within 24 hours! There’s no question about EAC’s expertise and dedication to their customers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Below you’ll find answers to our most commonly asked questions.

You can count on personalized support around the clock by email, live chat, or by joining a live webinar.

Doesn’t my PTC maintenance agreement include similar Windchill services?

No. Your PTC maintenance agreement covers Windchill updates to software you have purchased and technical support for problems that require resolution. It does not include the services necessary to update, upgrade, and maintain your Windchill system.

What are some benefits of using the EAC Alliance Program?

One of the core benefits the EAC Alliance Program provides is the ability to ensure high availability and performance from taking a proactive approach to maintaining your Windchill system. Complete regular system maintenance and software updates to better leverage your PTC investment. You can eliminate the need to hire a staff of Windchill Administration experts with our EAC expert consultants. We have years of experience and complete these activities on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis for Alliance Program customers.

Why do I need regular maintenance on my PTC Windchill system?

Critical systems like Windchill PLM must be available to users. Regular maintenance prevents system outages that can be costly. We recommend completing regular, preventative maintenance to identify and resolve issues before they cause performance problems or service interruptions.

Is EAC able to support my Windchill system globally?

Yes. We are part of the PTC Strategic Partner network giving us access to many additional resources overseas. We call on these partners to help with implementation, training, and support services local to international facilities.

Can EAC provide 24/7 Windchill Support?

Yes. EAC customers have access to our support case submission system. Windchill users can then log cases at any time. Any emergency Windchill support (as noted by the priority level assigned to a case) will notify our team immediately. International support is available as specified in your Alliance Program agreement. If an issue overseas occurs, EAC will coordinate with a local PTC partner to resolve the problem asap.
