The cooperation between SCS Concept and Alstom, which started locally in 2012 at the La Rochelle plant in France, has now reached the dimension of a global solution partnership. SCS Concept’s VPG+ software provides smart tooling solutions to 10 different Alstom plants in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, India and the USA. Alstom’s decision to work with a single supplier for software on a global scale in 2019 and the project launched with this goal was the beginning of the global solution partnership process between Alstom and SCS Concept. Two factors played an important role in this decision:
– VPG+ Software can be customized and developed according to customer needs.
– VPG+ Software can be integrated into many brands, products and models.
VPG+ Software is based on a worldwide cloud-based system provided to Alstom by Microsoft and protected by high and and up-to date security protocols. The two companies have already created a roadmap for the use of VPG+ at Alstom facilities for the coming years. Additionally, SCS Concept also provides hardware in the form of our Freedom 4S wrenches and our cooperation with Alstom, one of the most important players in the mobility sector, continues to develop.
