Mountain View, CA, March 19, 2012 – LeverX, Inc., a full-service systems integrator, SAP® Service Partner and preferred vendor, today announced it has opened a development and implementation office in the Detroit metropolitan area. LeverX has experienced sustained growth and demand for SAP’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Portfolio and Project Management (PPM) implementations in North America. To continue to meet the needs of this growing market, LeverX has chosen to expand its organization domestically and to become an active participant and contributor to the growing trend to “in-source” jobs back to the US.
““Outsource to Detroit” has become the new corporate catchphrase, and LeverX is proud to be a part of this movement,” said Dr. Victor Lozinski, CEO and Co-Founder of LeverX, Inc. “We see strong growth in the Midwest region from discrete and process manufacturing companies as well as from new high tech industries. These companies understand the need for improved competitive advantage and LeverX can help them leverage their investments in SAP solutions. Detroit is centrally located in the Midwest region providing an excellent location for LeverX to build up a strong and thriving development and implementation center as we did overseas. LeverX sees Detroit as a terrific investment opportunity, and we are proud and excited to be a part of its renaissance.”
“Michigan has become a more business friendly state, offering a competitive tax climate and a large pool of highly educated and skilled workers in the areas of IT, engineering, manufacturing and software development. In addition, there are leading universities in Michigan and the surrounding states that provide a steady stream of well educated and bright young talent that LeverX can leverage to build a cost effective SAP technical center that will be highly competitive to similar overseas groups.”
“LeverX is not alone in our vision for building up a stronger Midwest regional presence, many leading IT and technology companies such as SAP, Pandora and Google have a major presence in this region. LeverX implements SAP PLM and SAP PPM solutions and these are of particular value to manufacturing companies to help them regrow their businesses and regain competitive advantage in the global marketplace.”
“We are very pleased to hear that LeverX, one of SAP’s highly experienced SAP PLM Services Partners, has decided to open a development and implementation center in the Detroit area,” said Hans Thalbauer, Senior Vice President, Line of Business Solutions for Supply Chain and R&D, SAP. “SAP and LeverX have a long history of successful SAP PLM implementations and joint customers. SAP applauds LeverX’s move to actively participate in the Detroit Metro area technical revival and position themselves to support the strong growth in the market for SAP PLM in North America.”
