When we launched the PLM MarketPlace LinkedIn group in November 2008, we must confess that there were many "what if..." coming along: what if nobody comes? what if people publicly complain about a product? what if discussions are off topic? what if... what if... what if... Finally we decided to go and, looking backward, we think it was a wise choice since we have just reached the 2000 members milestone!
People from all over the world, with different PLM related jobs (designers, engineers, purchasers, analysts, students,...), are part of this group. They work for big, medium and small businesses. They are beginners or senior PLM users.
These 2000+ people ask questions about our Partners' solutions. Some of them answer the questions. Others submit an interesting news about PLM. One can offer a job while the other will be looking for a new job. We've got prospects looking for a solution that will help them solve a complex problem too.
In a nutshell, there is food for thought and discussion in this group!
- Get in touch with people having the same interest(s): 31%
- Increase your knowledge about best practices: 24%
- Detect business opportunities: 14%
- Find job opportunities: 10%
All these topics are addressed by the PLM MarketPlace LinkedIn group. This is why we encourage you to join and participate! There is one simple rule with social networks: to receive, you have to give. So, don't hesitate to join discussions, ask questions, share ideas/content with the community of PLM professionals.
On the other hand, it would be interesting for us to know why you are not member of such a group and/or why you are not "active" (meaning that you don't interact in the discussions)?
What if we'd have had to decide today to launch a PLM MarketPlace LinkedIn group? We would have done it, for sure!
