Dassault Systèmes Appoints Simuserv as its Channel Partner in New Zealand

Auckland, 20 March 2014 - Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the appointment of Simuserv as its Value Solutions Partner in New Zealand.

Simuserv, a Value Solutions Partner of Dassault Systèmes in Australia has extended its presence into New Zealand to support Dassault Systèmes expansion in the region. With an office in Auckland, Simuserv will serve New Zealand’s energy, engineering, architecture and advanced manufacturing industries by reselling and supporting Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA applications. The appointment of Simuserv will further strengthen Dassault Systèmes customers experience and expand on the training capabilities of SIMULIA in New Zealand.

Christian Ebel, Director of Value Solutions, Australia & New Zealand, Dassault Systèmes, said, “We are pleased to extend our presence in New Zealand through our partnership with Simuserv. Working in partnership with Simuserv, we will look to extend our market leadership by helping New Zealand-based companies in their innovation, competitiveness and move towards hi-tech advanced manufacturing.”

Simuserv has been a Value Solutions Partner of Dassault Systèmes in Australia since 2011 and this appointment extends the company’s presence into New Zealand. Gerd Diegelmann, Director of Simuserv said, “We are delighted to have Simuserv representing in New Zealand SIMULIA, the Dassault Systèmes brand for Realistic Simulation. Simuserv has had great success in Australia and we are confident the same will occur in New Zealand, helping companies on the North and South islands to innovate while guaranteeing quality and safety.”

SIMULIA is the industry’s leading brand for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Design Optimization and Simulation Lifecycle Management (SLM). It allows designers and manufacturers to create realistic simulation models to improve product performance, reduce the need to produce physical prototypes and to drive innovation throughout a company to support collaborative decision-making.

Designers can take advantage of SIMULIA’s traditional FEA capabilities using Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA V6 Analysis, or begin to leverage significant ease-of-use benefits from SIMULIA DesignSight, incorporating robust technology from SIMULIA Abaqus FEA. SLM enables design teams and decision makers to capture and deploy simulation methods and to share and manage simulation data across their business to support collaborative decision making.
