Specialised R&D consulting firms

Relying on effective design and simulation solutions in a collaborative environment


Whether your design office is independent or in-house, R&D is constantly changing to keep up with technological progress, which means that skills are constantly evolving.


This dynamic environment is forcing design and engineering firms to constantly reinvent themselves. Tomorrow’s most successful companies will be those which, as of today, trigger a true digital transformation to adapt their organisation to the rapid changes in the market.

Identify your new growth levers


Design offices are under great pressure to accelerate innovation. When they are independent, they need to gain full control over their productivity and limit their costs.


Improving collaboration between all stakeholders (in-house and external), relying on efficient design and simulation tools tailored to the organisation’s own working methods, and knowing how to respond easily to special orders are true growth levers.

Your challenges

Boosting product innovation

Continuous innovation is essential to stand out from the competition.

Market leading 3D CAD solutions (such as SOLIDWORKS or CATIA) and simulation solutions (SOLIDWORKS Simulation, SIMULIA) are assets. When coupled with tools that make daily life easier in the design office, they are a true advantage: saving time, automating repetitive tasks, reusing parts or assemblies, etc.

Working together more effectively

Design offices are often faced with the complexities of sharing information from 3D CAD software and managing administrative issues. Using collaborative tools allows all stakeholders to be involved throughout the project.

Collaborative tools allow all stakeholders to be involved throughout the project.

An in-house design & engineering department is subject to many energy-consuming processes that provide little value and take up your teams’ time. In-house processes and validation circuits must be automated. There has to be a guarantee that the information available is up-to-date and reliable. Lastly, every action and decision implemented around each project has to be traced to control risks and limit errors. The management of the design office within its ecosystem need not be complex, but it must be efficient.

Improving customer satisfaction

Loyalty is a major challenge for BtoB, which needs to transform customers and suppliers into business partners. The industry is seeing the emergence of a service set that brings new experiences to your customers and suppliers. So how can you simplify the customer experience, improve your communications and optimise your CAD tools to ride this wave? Implementing a service platform that’s accessible to all the players involved may provide an answer to this query.
