A faster path to growth in the experience economy

With access to social networks, product reviews, and company information, consumer preferences are changing faster than ever. Only by improving internal collaboration can companies drive the timely innovation that can deliver on what consumers are looking for.

This integrated digital experience removes the internal silos that can slow down innovation while simulating a consumer perspective throughout the design and delivery process.

What’s different about the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is that the design and production tools are all integrated. That’s particularly important to WestRock because we design and manufacture packages all over the world – from China to Japan, Australia, Europe and the Americas. The collaborative nature of Dassault Systèmes’ solutions was critical for us.
