SolidWorks, the Design Software of Choice for Innovative Companies

Published:

What do the majority of the world’s most innovative companies have in common?

They use SolidWorks® software to transform ideas into products that change the way we live. Thirty-five of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2010 featured by Bloomberg BusinessWeek (http://fwd4.me/Olp) own SolidWorks software – nearly 1,000 licenses in all.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek's Most Innovative Companies special report is based on data from longtime partner Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Last December, the consultancy e-mailed a 21-question poll to senior executives around the globe. The 1,590 respondents, who answered anonymously, were asked to name the most innovative companies outside their own industry in 2009.

“We’re a good match for these companies,” said Christine Washburn, vice president of marketing at Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. “We’re constantly innovating to help our customers achieve their most important goals. An example is our new Sustainability software, which helps design teams develop products that have a lighter impact on the environment, and quantify that impact so their customers can make an informed decision.”

SolidWorks software is also uniquely integrated with the company’s products for simulation, publishing, and data management. And it has one of the largest and most dynamic user communities in 3D CAD.
