Social Collaboration Services – what’s in it for your company?

Social Collaboration Services

For all our customers, a key to success is to innovate. However, most companies face a number of challenges in their innovation processes. First, the innovation processes involve several stakeholders, such as engineering, sales and manufacturing. A challenge when working with several stakeholders, internal and external, is the communication and collaboration with all of them during the innovation phase. Second, non-CAD users are unable to view native CAD files and therefore they cannot access or manage the CAD data. This leads to a situation where the innovation process is conducted with either too many systems or with too few systems. The data might be complex to access and it is stored in multiple locations. How does this boost innovation? Well, it doesn’t.

Is there another way to innovate between teams?

Yes, there is. It is called Social Collaboration Services and it runs on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Have a look at this short video to find out more.


Social Collaboration Services is here to help

3DEXPERIENCE platform is a business experience solution providing applications and services for every team, and Social Collaboration Services is acessable on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

With Social Collaboration Services, you find all your product data in the same location. All the stakeholders can access the data, and their roles can be defined. They can have full rights to take part in all the possible activities within Social Collaboration Services, or limited rights based on their needs. As all the 3DEXPERIENCE applications are cloud-based, you can access them anywhere, anytime and with any device. There are no maintenance or hardware costs as the service is completely on the cloud. Social Collaboration Services enhances collaboration as it brings an option to work socially. You can comment on the 3D CAD model inside the service, and you can share ideas via chat or other communication functions inside the service, such as dashboards. You no longer need to have a CAD software to do all this.

Are you using SOLIDWORKS?

SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE are both developed by Dassault Systémes so they support same features and functions. If you are already a SOLIDWORKS user and your license is on active subscription, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is included in your license at no extra cost. If you don’t have a SOLIDWORKS license, now is a good time to act. If you purchase a SOLIDWORKS license now, you and five members of your team get access to the Social Collaboration Services.
