- The company’s history goes back to 2000, when Etienne Borgeat and Olivier Létard founded idCAD in Montreal. Right from the onset, the company experienced continuous growth based on its ability to act on a global level and its considerable level of CAD/PLM technology expertise, further increased by its unique abilities in hiring and in-service training. With a worldwide presence, especially in North America and Asia, idCAD consultants offered in-depth expertise and a friendly approach to their industrial customers, and became invaluable assets on numerous projects.
- In 2007, idCAD Consulting acquired PCO Technolgies. This company was started in 1997 as a spin-off of Schneider Electric. It became a PLM pioneer right from the beginning, providing high-level consulting services on the Offer Creation Process and integration capabilities on numerous cPDM technologies. Based in Lyon, with a strong presence in the French market, PCO Technologies has built a solid reputation over the years and is highly recognized by industrialists.
- PCO Innovation was born in 2008 from the merger of two companies of similar size, both operating in the PLM consulting and service market. PCO Innovation, the result of the merger of these two entities, thrives on its diversity and ranks as an independent global leader in PLM consulting and specialized services.
