Experienced Management Consultant is new “VP Professional Services”.
FACTON, maker of FACTON EPC software, welcomes Rüdiger Stern (42) as the new VP Professional Services. Stern’s key tasks will include further optimizing FACTON roll-outs at customer sites. He will also promote the growth of the company.
Stern joins FACTON from Accenture, where he worked for 14 years – the last ten in leading positions with responsibility for key accounts and major development projects in the field of product life cycle management (PLM). He is highly experienced in business transformations, which result from the implementation of new management systems.
With its EPC software, FACTON introduces a comprehensive and integrated costing process that covers the entire product life cycle within customer organizations. The software manufacturer drives innovation by taking a comprehensive approach to Enterprise Product Costing with solutions that promote proactive cost management. This creates uniform, cross-functional and standardized processes enterprise-wide to ensure that costing is accurate, transparent and complete throughout the entire product life cycle.
“In the face of tough global competition, cost management based on isolated applications and solutions simply isn’t enough anymore,” emphasizes Stern. “The standardized, enterprise-wide EPC approach is more than just an option: Every manufacturer’s the long-term goal should be to establish Enterprise Product Costing as a key component in operational processes.”
After graduating with a degree in engineering physics from the HTW Berlin University of Applied Sciences, Rüdiger Stern launched his career as a development engineer in the automotive and home appliance industry.
