Early Adopters Endorse Powerful Social Collaboration to Connect Marketing to Product Design to Sales

VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France — February 6, 2014 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced Release 2014x of its 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s on-premise and on-the-cloud portfolio of Industry Solution Experiences spanning twelve separate industries, from aerospace to financial services.  Early adopters, after months of using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, indicate that its user experience is easy to learn and use, and the platform’s cloud-based social collaboration has brought enormous benefits to their business. 

“It took us 20 minutes to get up and running on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform,” said Jonathan Mallie, Principal of SHoP Architects and Managing Principal of SHoP Construction. “It is a fun environment to operate in. It is very intuitive. All of the modelling is on line, on the Cloud and available to the factory floor immediately.” For more details on SHoP Architects and SHoP Construction’s experience with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its social collaboration capabilities, click here.

“With SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual 2014x on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we were able to do four process revisions by the time our competitors were only doing their secondary revision,” said Mike Buchli, Engineering Manager, Karl W. Schmidt & Associates. “The key reason for that is the collaborative aspect of Mechanical Conceptual, which permitted our customers to log in, see real time updates of the process and share ideas with us through the blog.”

Release 2014x of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, available to all customers on February 24, 2014, includes an on-premise portfolio of 41 Industry Solution Experiences and their 183 processes, plus a dedicated cloud portfolio of 14 Industry Solution Experiences, with more than 60 processes, appropriate for businesses of any size. 

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a platform for all. Through key web-like social apps and user experiences, we provide a business platform to create and innovate consumer experiences, from product to point-of-sale,” said Dominique Florack, Senior Executive Vice President, Products, R&D, Dassault Systèmes.  “There are Industry Solution Experiences for business units and brand applications for day-to-day users. It is a platform designed for cloud, but available on premise as well, for all companies of any size.”

“Business in the Age of Experience is all about connecting people, ideas, data and solutions to create experiences that delight ultimate consumers and inspire brand loyalty,” said Monica Menghini, Executive Vice President, Industry & Marketing, Dassault Systèmes.  “The power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform with its intuitive, unified navigational interface and social collaboration apps will ignite the cross-functions value stream which is needed to create consumer experiences that are differentiating.”
