Montreal-based PLM consulting firm expands DS PLM solutions ecosystem with aerospace and automotive industry expertise

PARIS and MONTREAL, March 16, 2006 – Dassault Systèmes (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Processia Solutions announced today that Processia has joined the Dassault Systèmes Consulting & Services Program, extending the reach of PLM solutions in North America and Europe.

As a Dassault Systèmes Service Partner, Montreal-based Processia Solutions will provide high quality consulting services to accelerate the implementation of Dassault Systèmes’ PLM solutions at companies in the aerospace, automotive, transportation and other industries. Processia, which counts Bombardier, Renault F1 Team,

Pratt & Whitney Canada and Volvo among its customers, has more than five years experience helping customers implement Dassault Systèmes’ PLM solutions. Processia’s services include business consulting, solution design, enterprise application integration (EAI) and implementation services.

“We’ve been working with Dassault Systèmes solutions for several years now, and this partnership will help us align with Dassault Systèmes strategies to bring significant added value to our existing and future customers,” said Vincent Fraser, Processia’s co-founder and director of sales and marketing. “DS takes a very careful approach to adding partners who bring unique skills and experience, rather than signing partners on just for the sake of having more names on the roster.”

Processia is joining Dassault Systèmes Consulting & Services Program, an ecosystem of companies that provide IT and PLM expertise. Service partners design solutions that combine best-in-class PLM applications and best-in-class IT and PLM services that focus on customers’ individual needs. With a 25 percent share of the PLM marketplace, according to consulting firm Daratech, Dassault Systèmes offers its partners access to customers in every segment of the manufacturing industry, plus a steady stream of new PLM technology.

“Processia is exactly the kind of partner we’re glad to add to our ecosystem. They offer a broad array of services around some of our major products, and have the international reach to support companies that do business globally,” said Cindy Fagen, Dassault Systèmes, director of sales for indirect channels. “We’ve already had several successful engagements with them and we’re looking forward to working with them to develop more mutually beneficial customer relationships.”
