Season’s Greetings and a Tribute to our Customers

By Aurelien

Snowy 3DX CompassGreetings! :D

To close 2013, what could be better than a tribute to our amazing customers? With 170,000 customers spanning over 140 countries and representing more than 100 millions users across 12 industries… you get mind-blowing facts like:

  • Every 2.5 seconds an aircraft takes off powered by an engine designed using Dassault Systèmes software
  • Our customers produce more than 635 billion packages per year
  • A trillion kilometers are traveled each day on tires designed using Dassault Systèmes software
  • Our customers help millions of physicians and families diagnose, treat and cure diseases
  • Our customers are responsible for millions of marriages per year (I’m pretty sure you don’t believe me on this one  :wink: so watch the video below to find out how)

Watch the video for even more facts:

Numbers are great, but stories are even better! If I would have to pick my top 3 favorite customer stories shared on the blog this year, it would be:

Whether they’re on earth, on water or in the air, our customers are pushing the limits of human endeavor with incredible products making the most of their environments… yes, sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life :-)

Wishing you all wonderful holidays, see you in 2014 with ever more exciting stories and experiences!
