Profile: Aras combines enterprise open source technology with an advanced model-based service architecture to deliver a highly scalable, flexible and secure PLM solution suite. When we met Aras in 2005, they were in Lawrence growing rapidly ~ with ample space to grow, but they wished to upgrade their image, improve the amenities for the employees and allow for even more growth.

Solution: After searching a number of areas along Route 495, we were able to identify a building that provided more amenities for employees, better parking, and a higher image. Also we were able to provide a termination clause in case they outgrew the space! Over the last few years we have helped Aras expand twice, by over 30% each time, while remaining in the same building. This new space is so incredibly functional but even better: It was fully furnished, which eliminated not only furniture expenses, but also the costs of installation and voice/data wiring! The training rooms, conference space and the multiple kitchens ~ so important to the current working population and the new culture, are sure to carry Aras into the future in a sassy space with intelligent financial parameters.

“Aras Corp has relied on The Stevens Group for more than 18 years; through six leases, renewals, and expansions both here in the Boston area and at our remote locations.   The Stevens Group has always placed our interests first and foremost and depend upon their advice.  We consider The Stevens Group a part of the Aras family, helping us to grow from a small start-up to now occupying over 100,000 sf.”
