We are pleased to launch today the latest version of the PLM MarketPlace website! This is the sixth release since the program was launched in 2005!

After some tests during the past months, but also following discussions and exchanges with some of our users and visitors, we decided to redesign the website. Our main concern with this new release was to offer more visibility to the outstanding solutions of our partners. The challenge was to help you find the right solution at the early beginning of your visit on www.plmmarketplace.com but also to make you discover other solutions that you may be interested in…

We hope you'll like this new PLM MarketPlace as much as we do. We're still thinking about the next improvements, so if you have some ideas, don't hesitate to share them with us!

So... At first, we had the PLM MarketPlace iPhone app. People were happy with that. Then, Android users asked us for a PLM MarketPlace Android app. We launched it. And, at the same time, we thought that people using BlackBerry smartphones would be happy to have the PLM MarketPlace in their device. This is why we released today... guess what?... Yes! The PLM MarketPlace BlackBerry app!

Like its sisters, this app is 100% free and you can download it from now on the BlackBerry App World.

Basically, here is what you will find in the PLM MarketPlace BlackBerry app*:
- Latest news and blogposts
- The whole PLM MarketPlace catalog including videos, brochures, images,...
- A direct access to our social medias channels

 

We have integrated some nice features in it: easy and useful "Share by email" function, catalog auto update, push notifications,...

So, feel free to download it, use it and send us your feedback being positive or enhancement suggestions. This app was made for you, you are the user and we want it to fit with your needs!

Enjoy!

Anthony Rosendo

* The PLM MarketPlace BlackBerry app requires at least OS 6.0 and works on the following devices: BlackBerry 9000/9650/9700/9780/9800/9810/9850/9860/9900/9930.

Two weeks after the release of the PLM MarketPlace app for Android, we have juste released a new version of the PLM MarketPlace app for iPhone!

Downloaded thousands of times since its launch in November 2009, the iPhone app brings now some new useful features that we're sure you'll appreciate:
- receive push notifications when something important happens (new partner/product referenced, event announcement,...);
- RSS news and blogposts are now in the same section so that you are updated at a glance;
- the catalog, the heart of the application, offers now an auto-update feature and cache management options in order to optimize the memory of your device;
- MS Office and PDF documents can now be read;
- in-app browsing allows you to surf the web within the app, no more need quit and re-open the app anymore;
- we've put the focus on visual items: new design, more icons and images,...

You can get all these new features just by updating the app from iTunes or your iDevice! For those of you who don't already have it on their iPhone, just look for "plm marketplace" in the AppStore.

One more thing: it is (still) free :-)

What are your impressions? Do you like it? Don't hesitate to rate it in the iTunes AppStore! Also, the comments section of this blogpost is the right place to ask us for more features you'd like to see in the next release!

Happy downloads!

December is usually the great time to take a little break and think about what have been done during the year and what the next year will be synonym with. That's what we're doing now, a few hours before rising our glasses :-).

What we've got for you

This year, five new referenced partners joined the program and (will) have their offers listed on the catalog:
- ACTAS and their solutions Tool & Die Engineering offering substantially improved quality of the end result and noticeably faster delivery time; 
- COASTAL LOGIC with convertLogic and printLogic for batch printing within ENOVIA;
- FORCEFIVE bringing its FastConceptModeller suite, a workbench within CATIA V5 that enables the integration and convergence of design and analysis;
- GOLAEM, focusing on populating 3D worlds with autonomous human-like characters (available soon on PLM MarketPlace);
- CADCAM and their software tools for electronics and mechanical system design (available soon on PLM MarketPlace).


Take a few minutes to browse our entire catalog of software and hardware fully complementary with CATIA, DELMIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA and 3DVIA. Contact us if you'd like to have a specific solution listed there!

Also, note that more than 25 new Value Added Resellers joined the program this year! Check our Resellers section to know which one is in your region.

Content at heart

A few weeks ago, we introduced a brand new design for the PLM MarketPlace, specially the homepage. We want content and sharing to be at heart of this new version of the website. Discover all the new features in the dedicated blogpost!

Keep in touch!

The PLM MarketPlace LinkedIn group we launched back in 2008 was our first step into the world of social medias. It now connects almost 1800 PLM professionals.

We also launched our Twitter account and YouTube channel in 2009. These one are successful with their hundreds of people connecting and sharing content.

Our latest community is the PLM MarketPlace Facebook fan page, launched a few weeks ago only. We want it to be an informal place to share and connect around PLM MarketPlace related topics. Don't hesitate to share content here (ie. videos showing what you've made with our partners' solutions, pictures of events, etc...).
Talking about Facebook (and Twitter), you may have noticed some "Tweet" and "Recommend" buttons at the bottom of product datasheets and blogposts. Don't hesitate to click to share your interests with your peers!

What's next?

Like every year since 2006, we'll do our best in 2011 to bring you more solutions on the PLM MarketPlace with new referenced partners and/or products. Subscribe to our RSS feed to be sure you won't miss it or join our groups and communities!

On the catalog side as well, you'll discover some improvements and changes very soon, making it clearer and more powerful in terms of access to the right solution.

We also plan a major update of our PLM MarketPlace iPhone App in the next months with many new features.
In addition, we'd like to know more about your use of mobile applications and particularly the OS running in your smartphones. Please take a few seconds to answer the poll, it will help us to serve you best.

W

e talk a lot about online, social websites, etc... but we do believe life is not all about online! This is why we will continue to meet you during events all year long, including local ones but also regional ones too.

See you next year

Well, this was only a sneak preview of what we'll be doing for you in 2011. Of course, there will be more but it is too soon to tell and we want to keep a surprise effect :-)
Visit the blog, the website and our online communities regularly to be sure you won't miss anything!

It is now time for us to wish you and your loved one all the best for 2011: health above all, fun, opportunities, success in your business!

Bonne année 2011!

…and indeed, there are some changes on www.plmmarketplace.com! We are proud to present the 5th version of the website, including a brand new design but also some new features we’re sure you’ll like! Ready for the tour?

Right from the homepage, you’ll have access to our program’s key news, including new partners/products, program evolutions, events, special announcements,… This section is mostly dedicated to our Referenced Partners, so that they can deliver all the value from their solutions in a strong and well positioned visual message.

On a regular basis, we’ll share some information with you regarding the PLM MarketPlace program and you are more than welcome to exchange your ideas and points of views in the Editorial section.

Because the PLM MarketPlace Blog is really one of the most important tribune for our Partners, you’ll find now the latest blogposts right from the homepage. Don’t hesitate to consult the blogposts and react by clicking on the comment button!

Share, interact, network, meeting peers, feedback,… are essential keywords and business behaviors for us and we wanted these notions to be at the heart of this new version. This is why you’ll find a direct access to our business forum on LinkedIn (meet PLM professionals and exchange views around our Partners’ solutions), our Twitter feed (engage direct discussion with us), our Facebook page (find original content), our YouTube channel (all our Partners’ demos are hosted there) and download our iPhone App (bring all the PLM MarketPlace, including the catalog) in your pocket. The new PLM MarketPlace is clearly at heart of communities!

To facilitate and encourage exchanges around the solutions available on the PLM MarketPlace, we’ve implemented two buttons that allow you to share the page you’re reading (a Referenced Partner’s presentation, a product datasheet or a blogpost) on your Facebook wall and/or on your Twitter feed. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3: read, share, discuss!

We really hope you will like this new PLM MarketPlace as much as we do. We wanted it to focus on content/offers and user feedback and experience. This is why we decided to promote even more what is part of PLM MarketPlace but out of the website, ie. the social and business networks we are present on. Don’t hesitate to join us and discuss!

Many new features will be implemented on www.plmmarketplace.com all along 2011 (we’ve really got some cool ideas, we’re sure you’ll like it!)… Keep in touch!

This is more and more obvious: 3D is not only the future: it is still the present. We build cars in 3D, we watch movies in 3D, we design our living-room in 3D, etc… But why is it so successful? Maybe because people can easily translate visually what they think of and interact with their peers to share emotion, opinions, ideas,…
 
In parallel with the development of powerfull and easy-to-use 3D technologies such as 3dvia, social networks are more and more popular. People interact with each other on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn either on their computer and thanks to their iPhone for instance. Sharing ideas and sending messages “in 3D” has never been so easy.
 
Doing what we say
 
The aim of PLM MarketPlace is to deliver more value to our customers thanks to the cooperation between our Solutions Providers and our Value Added Resellers. In other words, we sell 3D solutions all day long. This is nice but not enough.
 
We now want to go a step ahead and build a kind of “PLM MarketPlace in 3D”. In the end, this is quiet logical for people promoting 3D technologies! This is why we have built a virtual showroom allowing people to discover the program in 3D! With your own-made avatar, you can walk through the scene, watch videos, read products data sheet and presentations, interact with other people visiting the scene at the same time, contact us, and much more!
 
Be our guest!
 
This PLM MarketPlace in 3D is available now, feel free to enter by following the instructions below. 
 

For those of you wanting to share the experience with customers, colleagues, partners,… you can share the link of the demo video as well.


 
This is a first step for us and we are looking after your comments, suggestions and ideas to improve the next scenes we are working on with our partners part of the PLM MarketPlace.
Feel free to share your feedback by leaving comments on this blogpost!

Wednesday, 30 December 2009

Well, 2009 is really coming to its end, and after last week’s retrospective, and as promised, it is now time to look at the future! As we said, we’ve got really cool things to announce for the PLM MarketPlace community. In 2009 (also applies for the previous years ;-)), we spent time meeting our customers, partners, resellers online but also for real (COE, DEVCON, ECF, …) and tried to find out how we could do better to help them.

Of course, today, it is still too soon to disclose everything, but this, for sure, what you will get from the PLM MarketPlace in 2010.

A growing catalog

The software catalog will welcome two new post-processors providers: ICAM and IMS. Their offers should be available online mid-/end-January. Note that in the field of post-processors, CENIT referenced their offer a few weeks ago.
On the hardware catalog side, we are very proud to announce that AMD decided to join the PLM MarketPlace! Their offer is scheduled to be available next month, a special announcement will be made once it is online, stay tuned!
Finally, we remind our services providers that we are still looking for candidates to be referenced on the Services Catalog of the PLM MarketPlace. The referencing mode is very flexible and made to comply with your business habits. Don’t hesitate to contact us to know more!

You remember IBM?

In October, Dassault Systèmes announced the acquisition of IBM PLM and its 700 Sales Reps. These guys showed interest in the PLM MarketPlace and the easy way it represents to deliver more value to customers. This is why, in the coming weeks, IBM PLM Sales Reps will be able to resell the solutions available on PLM MarketPlace! This represents a good opportunity to make a connection between customers and referenced partners… Again, “connecting partners” is our motto!

Buy one, get…

… maybe not one free :-) but, for sure, in 2010, there will be special discounts from our referenced partners, even new ones! Check regularly the homepage (www.plmmarketplace.com) to discover the current discounts available and ask your VAR for more details!

2010 will be a year of new challenges and maybe, for some of us, of a new start. We want to remind you that we are here to help you find the best way to develop your activity, your business, meet your challenges,…

Consequently, whatever (well… almost :-))you need, feel free to contact us and ask, we’ll do our utmost to help you.

Customers, resellers, solutions providers, this program is yours and we are open to make it change the way you think it will help you. This is our challenge for 2010.

On behalf of Jacques and Alexandre, I wish you all the best for 2010!

We are almost at the end of 2009 and I take a short break before tonight's Christmas celebration to have a look at how the PLM MarketPlace program evolved this year...

First, many new Referenced Partners joined bringing along a lot of new, innovative and comprehensive solution one click away from customers:
- Elsys, with CATELECTRE, ELECTRE and SMARTELECTRE in the field of electrical harness design;
- Icona Solutions, with the aesthetica product range helping you to face perceived quality challenges;
- Magestic and its Truenest and Truelaser View solutions for the composite manufacturing process;
- Mecamaster, with Mecamaster Analysis (Tolerance analysis);
- Noomeo, offering handheld 3D-scanners.
Take a look at what they offer and don't hesitate to drop their solutions in your shopping cart if need a quote or simply just more information!

We had also dozens of Value Added Resellers joining the program. They are now almost 100 all over the world able to deliver all the solutions listed on the PLM MarketPlace catalog to their customers.

The motto of the PLM MarketPlace has always been "Connecting Partners". Thus, we wanted to go a step ahead and open new channels where Referenced Partners, VARs and Customers would have the opportunity to interact:
- We launched a Twitter in April and today, more than 600 people (mostly users, partners, and 3D enthusiasts) follow us and discuss! Join them for free on Twitter!
- "See what you mean" is Dassault Systèmes' motto. This is why we gathered all the videos of our Referenced Partners on a dedicated channel on YouTube. People can now see for real what their software do, ask questions and share the videos in an easy way.
- Last but not least, something we are very proud of: the PLM MarketPlace application for iPhone. Thanks to it, bring all the PLM MarketPlace (RSS news, blog and, above all, the catalog, including product datasheets, videos and images) whereever you go! This application is free and can be downloaded from Apple's App Store.

This was all the exciting stuff we did in 2009! But we've been working on even more cool things for 2010! Next year, PLM MarketPlace will bring you even more opportunities. Want to know what? I suggest you to come back here next week... ;-)

I would like also to thank all our PLM MarketPlace partners all over the world for helping our customers every day with their solutions and knowledge.

On behalf of all the PLM MarketPlace Team, I wish everyone a merry Christmas.

Summer time is always a good period to explore new areas and discover new things. This is true for the place you’ll visit this year, the new people you’ll meet but also for new areas on the Web. If, like me, you can’t really disconnect from work even during holidays (:-)), remember to have a look to the different PLM MarketPlace channels all over the Web.

If you’re the lucky owner of a smartphone, remember to bookmark the mobile version of PLM MarketPlace to receive our Partners’ latest news right on your phone by the swimmingpool! You can also bookmark our RSS feed.

To keep aware of the latest business discussions around PLM MarketPlace’s referenced solutions, join, read and react on the PLM MarketPlace LinkedIn group. Have also a look at the members list to find new business contacts. By the way, we are close to reach our 1000th member, you maybe?

If you really can’t disconnect from work and your smartphone/laptop and want to chat with other PLM users/professionals/experts/partners, then PLM MarketPlace Twitter is made for you! Like LinkedIn, it is totally free. Just sign up and start discussing in less than 140 characters (it’s not always easy but an interesting exercise that definitely shows you how much a 3D drawing helps you to express an idea :-)).

Finally, after dinner and a walk by the marina, you might want to see a great TV show. What about the PLM MarketPlace TV shows introducing the program’s latest improvements and benefits? These are really great and made on TVnima! We would be very proud to count you among our audience!

Well… I hope everybody will find here the content he/she is looking for! Time for me to wish you a good holiday time and see you back in September with new and exciting announcements on PLM MarketPlace!

As you may know, I’m here at the PLM Forum in Manheim, Germany to represent the PLM MarketPlace.

Yesterday, I was exchanging on our “online shopping” experiences with a few colleagues from DS and some of our Partners. It appeared to me that online shopping is not “natural” for everybody, maybe because I’m a “digital native” as Jacques says! As we were talking, the discussion came to the PLM MarketPlace and some people asked me how it is possible today to sell PLM software online?

Well, my answer was simple: “we do it like eBay or Amazon sell books, CDs, DVD,…”. As a matter of fact, it is not 100% true, of course! PLM is much more complex than the latest book of Tom Clancy. But if we focus on the online shopping process, this is exactly the same!

Have a look at this video to see how Amazon and PLM MarketPlace are close:

See the similarities?:
- Intuitive search
- Product data sheets
- Add to cart button
- Check out
- Contact form

Only five key and quick steps to get the most appropriate product! Of course, the purpose of PLM MarketPlace is not to allow you to pay online but to find a solution you need and then to be assisted by a VAR to get an appropriate price and the knowledge to implement and use it. Connecting Partners in fact!

So, in a nutshell, as I told to my folks yesterday: “PLM MarketPlace is a kind of Amazon for PLM”: browse, find, be contacted, buy!

Ready to shop?

On October 2008, we launched a group on LinkedIn. To be honest, neither Jacques nor me hoped it would be so successful. It was kind of a new experience at DS but we thought it could be a good way to connect, not only our Partners, but also with our users and all those interested in PLM and DS products' complimentary offers.

So, almost 5 months later here we are: we have just welcomed our 700th member and became (as of to today) the first PLM-related branded group on LinkedIn! As a matter of fact, even though we are more looking for quality rather than quantity, I must confess that the DS Alliances Team is quite proud of it! Customers, prospects, engineers, software/hardware/services partners, resellers, students, DS people... are part of the group! Even our competitors want to be part of it (using sometimes the craziest stratagemes to fool us :-))!

Many topics are discussed by all those people: info requests on DS Partners' products or (including products, releases, events,...), the future of CAA V5, specific usages of PLM in particular industries, and also job offers all over the world. We are proud to see that some of our members managed to establish a business relationship thanks to our LinkedIn group. It was (and still definitly is) our primary goal!

I really think this is a unique place that gives you a wide range of opportunities in terms of business and knowledge. And, guess what: it is completly free! You just need to create a (free) profile on www.linkedin.com and ask for joining the group PLM MarketPlace!

Now it's your turn!

We’re pretty sure that most of you know LinkedIn.com. Not only it provides a lot of professional and business opportunities, it is also a wonderful way to connect and share experiences in a private or business point of view.

We launched the PLM MarketPlace group on LinkedIn last week. Already more than 50 people part of the PLM MarketPlace (VAR Sales Reps, Referenced Partners people, DS staff…) joined. We noticed an impressive buzz effect! For those of you still not part of it, you should join very quickly (before we reach the limit of 10 000 members ;-).

I must clarify something: the aim of this LinkedIn group is only to allow enthusiasts of the PLM MarketPlace including some customers to share experiences and to eventually get connected with new (business) partners. In the near future, we do not exclude to promote it actively to final customers… but it depends on the shape we (you) give to this group!

Remember that www.plmmarketplace.com is THE place where you do business, log opportunities, get special offers, talk about business privately with Referenced Partners, monitor your sales, etc… All this is covered by the Channel Partner Agreement you have signed.
So, ready for this new “2.0 adventure”?

In this enhanced version of PLM MarketPlace we want to make business easier for all Sales Representatives and Application Engineers from our VAR Community, as well as reach new Customers with our DS VARs.

As an example, we are introducing here a visual navigation in order to easily find offers from our Partners. The benefit is that without knowing anything about the Solution or Software Company you are looking for, you are able to describe it in terms of usage by a user profile in a specific industry.

The same approach is even more fruitfull for customers and prospects not familiar with our ecosystem Solutions. We are going in the short term to communicate to potential customers via online-marketing, in order to generate customer awareness about Partner Solutions. More important, this will also guide prospects to leave their coordinates and provide leads to you. Of course, these leads will be managed via the geography CMP organizations in order to smoothly support all local particularities.

This user-centric approach is supported by many web2.0 technologies like Partner-ranking by VARs, blog, tag-cloud, RSS and so on. But for us this is not a goal in itself. Our goal with PLM Marketplace is always to leverage these technologies so that our Partners (DS VARs and Referenced Partners) make money. With this blog approach, we want also to get your feedback on many domains while concentrating on domains that generate revenue.

In the coming days there will be more about usage guidelines for this blog, processes to secure your commissions, presentations of the new business management tools and many more.
We hope this new release will be a valuable business enabler, don't miss this opportunity to secure your quarterly targets.

Jacques.
