Dassault Systèmes and Seemage Announce Strategic Partnership

Producing Next-generation 3D Product Documentation from Digital Product Definition Data

Paris, September 6, 2007 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and Seemage, Inc., a leader in 3D content production from digital product definition data, today announced their intention to become strategic partners. The partnership will leverage the companies’ respective strengths to dramatically grow their presence in the 3D product documentation market.

The partnership will provide a seamless link between product documentation and PLM product-related data. For companies, this eliminates all disparities between product-related IP and any required product documentation, such as animations, graphics and illustrations for training, maintenance manuals and service procedures. Working together, the companies will permit the exploitation of 3D as a universal media.

“Seemage joining the CAA program is noteworthy for CATIA users,” said Patrice Bélanger, PLM business process manager, Bombardier Aerospace. “To be competitive today, we have to eliminate rework and delays in the production of service procedures and product documentation. But to automate these critical processes we need increased integration between Seemage and Dassault Systèmes’ solutions. We look forward to implementing the results of this partnership to help us address these business challenges.”

“We fully endorse DS’s 3DVIA strategy and are delighted to be part of its ecosystem,” says Chris Williams, CEO, Seemage Inc. “The partnership with DS will bring tremendous value to our users, extending the reach of 3D digital assets beyond design communities for their product maintenance, training, operation and sales and marketing processes.” Seemage users can exploit 3D data from any 3D CAD or enterprise system and create content from this for any desired output in formats including Microsoft Office documents, PDF and HTML. Seemage’s XML-based architecture integrates seamlessly with enterprise systems.

 “The partnership will define a new, collaborative way to integrate product documentation into product innovation and PLM in 3D,” said Pascal Daloz, executive vice president, strategy and marketing, Dassault Systèmes. “Working with Seemage, Dassault Systèmes intends to lead the convergence between 3D product definition and 3D product documentation, increasing the value of digital product data in the enterprise and beyond. Our customers can rely on Seemage to produce rich deliverables with high accuracy and security.”
