Paris, France – June 13, 2006 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) today announced the extension of the development partnership with Océ Technologies, a world-leading provider of consultancy and software services and printing solutions for professional document applications. Through the partnership, Océ now extends the availability of its end-to-end engineering document management solution based on Dassault Systèmes’ ENOVIA SmarTeam, delivering a specific portfolio dedicated to printer and scanner management.
“To grow with the needs of our customers, we sought to replace our digital archiving solution with end-to-end engineering document management,” said Tom Egelund, executive vice- president of Océ’s Strategic Business Unit Wide Format Printing Systems. “As the premier Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for small-to-medium sized businesses, and being highly adaptable with world wide availability and support, ENOVIA SmarTeam was the natural choice.”
“Océ was one of the first Dassault Systèmes CAAV5 Gold Partners, and the new ENOVIA SmarTeam project is an opportunity that grew from our PLM multi-brand program which has boosted our partnership,” said Frederic Vacher, manager, Business Partner Development, Dassault Systèmes. “Océ is an excellent example of the way partner organizations can leverage DS PLM brand openness to link their expert domains and powerful PLM, in a win-win scenario for customers.”
Océ Doc Exec® EDM efficiently integrates ENOVIA SmarTeam’s proven document management technology with Océ’s powerful capabilities for importing and indexing the vast quantities of electronic documents generated by Océ hardware. The application acts as a bridge between hard‑copy and digital documents, helping companies make the transition to electronic documentation by enabling traditional archives to be imported and stored alongside digitally created information. The solution, which supports integration with leading CAD applications such as AutoCAD®, MicroStation®, and Microsoft Office® applications, will be presented at DEVCON CAA V5 Developers’ Conference in June 27-28, 2006.
Océ, whose primary products are printers, scanners, copiers, their accessories, and related software, is building a natural migration path to ENOVIA SmarTeam with seamless integration to Océ hardware, enabling its customers to leverage ENOVIA SmarTeam’s higher-end capabilities in Engineering Data Management (EDM), Product Data Management (PDM) or Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). ENOVIA SmarTeam customers will also be able to use the future integration to extend their solutions.
“With this new offering as a result of the partnership, Oce’s customers can optimize the value of their document assets today and have a scalable, robust PLM platform in place for managing their collaborative engineering processes for the future,” said Roy Oron, vice-president Business Development, ENOVIA SmarTeam. “For our existing customers, the future integration to Océ printers will expand the available PLM managed data to include copied and scanned engineering documents.”
