Staples Solutions Successfully Deployed PTC's FlexPLM SaaS-Based
Solution to Streamline Processes and Provide Single Source of Truth for
Development of Private Label Products

(NASDAQ:PTC) today announced that Staples Solutions, the leading
provider of workplace products, services, and solutions to businesses
across Europe, has gone live with PTC's market-leading retail solution PTC
to enable the acceleration of product
development through improved efficiency.

Staples Solutions is the leading provider of workplace products,
services, and solutions to small, mid-sized, and large businesses in
Europe. The company offers office supplies, technology products and
services, facilities and break-room supplies, furniture, copy and print
services and a wide range of other product categories.

"We are developing an aggressive growth strategy initiative for our
private label. With the flexibility and comprehensive capability of PTC
FlexPLM, we expect to significantly improve employee efficiency and
speed of innovation," said Aini Chong, brand manager, Staples Solutions.
"Ultimately, we selected FlexPLM due to its out-of-the-box capability to
manage our complex product portfolio, rapid deployment approach, robust
cloud architecture, and overall user friendliness. After a 14-week
implementation, we have been able to go live with phase 1 on-time and
on-budget and are very excited to continue expansion and collaboration
with PTC on this journey."

Staples Solutions has leveraged PTC's Software as a Service (SaaS)
offering for full solution management and hosting. ITC Infotech, a PTC
Service Partner, provided consulting services to enable rapid
implementation, while reducing total cost of ownership and resource
impact on the internal IT department.

"During its in-depth evaluation of the PLM marketplace, Staples
discovered PTC's large community of manufacturing customers, with whom
they will be able to share ideas, best practices, and strategy," said
Eric Symon, general manager, Retail Business Unit, PTC. "We look forward
to supporting this global leader in fulfilling its growth plans for its
renowned private label."
