“Our main objective is to consolidate our leadership position in selling and implementing complete PLM solutions,” said Eugen Mihaila, CEO, CYBERNETICS Srl. “In order to do this, we have to take into account that Romania is an emergent market, attracting many investors particularly in the automotive industry. As such, we took the initiative to assess our existing software portfolio and technical expertise to ensure that Cybernetics is prepared to support the unique needs and requirements of these rapid growth market segments. After a thorough review of our portfolio and industry vertical needs, it was obvious that by adding HyperWorks we could enhance our product portfolio and level of client service. “
