Design software vendor, Dassault Systèmes, has released the latest version of its visual design portfolio, Solidworks 2014.
The suite comes with the latest editions of 3D design tools such as 3D CAD, Simulation, Product Data Management, Technical Communication, and Electrical Design.
Dassault Systèmes Asia-Pacific South Asia general manger, Sharon Toh, said the updated SolidWorks portfolio has enablement at its core.
“We are really committed to the success of our customers in the goals in product development,” she said.
Toh adds the vendor listens to its users “all the time” when it comes to updating and improving the products in the portfolio.
“Ninety per cent of what we put into the software is from direct feedback from our customers,” she said.
In addition to investing in the R&D of its products, Toh said Dassault is also demonstrating commitment to its customers through its support.
“We and our value added resellers want to ensure that customers who buy our products are successful,” she said.Read more: Altium relocates R&D and execs to US

“We want to ensure that our local customers are able to get the results they are looking for using our product for development,” Toh said.
Dassault uses a 100 per cent channel model, an approach which Toh said remains unchanged ever since Solidworks was introduced in the market.
“We believe local partners are the long term success factor for us, and also for our customers,” she said.Read more: Immersive VR is beneficial to CAD: Dassault Systèmes
