Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company,
a world leader in 3D design, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM) solutions, announced today the launch of a new industry
solution experience for Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies called
“Perfect Package”. Based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it helps
integrate the highly fragmented package design process across the entire
supply chain to enable winning package designs and faster time to market.

The package development process has traditionally been a serial development
process plagued by multiple rounds of rework, resulting in sub-optimal
designs. The “Perfect Package” industry solution experience turns it into a
synchronized package design process from end to end, integrating internal and
external organizations to create breakthrough packaging in record time. Brand
manufacturers, design agencies, packaging suppliers and artwork studios
collaborate together to virtually create, visualize and validate innovative
designs, allowing for rapid packaging iterations and decision taking.

This significantly reinforces innovation, shortens package design cycles,
lowers materials costs and virtually eliminates the chance for costly
packaging-related recalls by creating tighter integration and control of
artwork development and copy management. “Perfect Package” also drives
packaging reuse. Instead of redesigning new packages for every product
initiative, CPG companies can repurpose and modify existing designs, saving
time and increasing package sustainability and delivering more value through a
desired consumer experience.

“In the world of Fast Moving Consumer Goods companies, some succeed, some
fail, and some make an impact on society. This impact is mostly due to a
perfect match between the actual product and the way it is delivered: the
packaging,” said Monica Menghini, Executive Vice President, Industry and
Marketing, Dassault Systèmes. “Packaging is a key component of any brand’s
equity. It is, essentially, the first and most important advertising for that
product. This is what inspired us to create 'Perfect Package'. Creating a
perfect consumer experience requires more than just a nice design tool. Our
3DEXPERIENCE platform allows to embrace the design experience need of today’s
marketers.”
