Navigating Communication & Collaboration on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Communication and collaboration are fundamental within all industries. However, collaboration is dependent on rich and clear communication. Ineffective communication makes it challenging to collaborate with colleagues, particularly overcoming the barriers between cross-functional departments and sites.

For business to be successful, companies need to look towards technological innovation driven by collaboration and communication working symphonically.

To unlock the true value of collaboration, however, you need to tie your data to your business processes in one seamless environment, connecting people, data, and ideas, in real-time. That seamless environment is available now, with the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform.




Social Collaboration applications are made available as part of any base installation of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform (denoted by the north quadrant of the interactive navigational compass menu).

Any user can empower innovation in their organization by using the Business Innovation role to share, store, collaborate and communicate with others across the organization and start to establish a single source of truth (SSoT) & single version of truth (SVoT) in data. Subsequently, facilitating transparency and two-way communication between people departments and sites. Helping to break silos between a company’s main assets, its people and data.


Key features:

Connect stakeholders through social sharing

Social collaboration through communities allows users to share ideas, ask questions, comment and keep your team up to date by creating a digital post for all stakeholders within an ecosystem. Different communities are user defined (based on departments, common interest, KPI’s, etc.) in which stakeholders can provide feedback, endorse topics, track ideation funnels with a broader audience.

Users can collaborate in real-time and receive updates when they occur. Notifications (through e-mail and messages) provide effective status updates with links, pictures or other platform activities.




• Enhance collaboration with immersive 3D visualization

Visualize designs and review GEOVIA outputs (and other file types) on all devices in real-time from one location. View 3D models with instinctive functions and tools to annotate, section, comment, share and publish data to relevant stakeholders.




• Connect with Colleagues

Users collaborate with each other in real-time by using conversations chat application to message, or make audio or video calls for a more seamless communication experience with all stakeholders within the enterprise.




• Seamless secure file sharing

Connecting users with the right data at the right time. Cloud-based file storage allows users to store and access data on any device from a central repository. Relevant stakeholders can comment, share folders or a single file of data across the mining value chain within the enterprise.

Hosted on the cloud, all data within file storage is backed up by secure Dassault Systèmes data centers.




Adoption of the secure file storage on the platform is acquainted, as it presents a familiar folder architecture to users, which can be indexed and catalogued to create reusable intellectual assets.

Additionally, stakeholders can collate data from several cloud drives such as Dropbox and Google Drive or seamlessly interact with Microsoft Windows Explorer on platform secure file storage.

POWER’BY connector’s link GEOVIA products to the platform providing a SSOT, allowing users to have an integrated solution to a platform based model sustainable for innovation from your GEOVIA desktop application.



• Unified user EXPERIENCE

Dashboards deliver a centralized view in which users can interact with colleagues in the context of data in real-time: listen, track and govern flawlessly. A dashboard is comprised of applications that can be adapted to provide information intelligence and business agility across the entire mining value chain.




Connect imagination with information we empower companies to drive innovation.
