Paris, November 29, 2007 – Dassault Systèmes (DS), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today launched its new desktop content authoring system, 3DVIA Composer V6R1. Arriving only weeks after DS’s October 2007 acquisition of Seemage, this release features product enhancements, a new name, simplified packaging and global availability in all DS sales channels. The launch of 3DVIA Composer reinforces DS’s commitment to the product documentation publishing marketplace and to enhancing 3DVIA Composer rapidly to serve the needs of customers.
“Following the acquisition, 3DVIA Composer maintains openness, enabling companies to exploit data from all of their information systems,” says Chris Williams, general manager, Enterprise Products Applications, 3DVIA. “3DVIA reinforces the DS commitment to deliver solutions that leverages the reuse of product IP across the enterprise.”
"We were already successfully using Seemage in our technical documentation department and for after sales use to produce rich illustrations for the dealer network. Now we are investigating how to extend 3DVIA Composer to new users who would leverage 3D product data in presentations and reports to facilitate business decisions,” says Jean-Luc Perrard, R&D IT VP, PSA Peugeot Citroen.
