SolidWorks World 2012 Partner Profile: Simpoe #sww12

It's only nine days until SolidWorks World 2012, and the partner profiles keep rolling in. Today, we hear from Simpoe. If you're at the event later this month, stop by and say hi. And if you still haven't registered, there's till time. If you pay for two registrations, we'll throw in a third for free. And as always, CSWPs save $100. You can see all of our registration deals at the SolidWorks World website.


1. Tell us about Simpoe.

Our company develops and markets plastic injection simulation software. Most plastic parts we use today in our daily life are injected parts, and we simulate this manufacturing process. This is the only thing we do, but we do it best. Simpoe is a French company, located near Paris. Simpoe software's ease of use, speed and affordability set a new standard in the industry, and 90% of our business is international. With our software available in several languages, international offices and a worldwide network of value added resellers, we are a true global company.

2. What products do you sell, or what services do you offer?

We sell (of course) our software, as well as the associated services, such as training, support or consulting. In San Diego we will focus on SimpoeWorks, which is our product line fully embedded into the SolidWorks graphic user environment. SimpoeWorks is the only  SolidWorks Gold Partner product for plastic injection simulation, which means we really work inside SolidWorks. The user never leaves his/her familiar SolidWorks interface, and we are the only one to do that.

3. How can your products or services help make a SolidWorks user’s life easier?

We can help any SolidWorks user in the plastic industry. Whether they are just  designing plastic parts, or  developing the tooling and the molds, or manufacturing the parts, Simpoe will help them. They can identify very early on potential design and manufacturing problems, with very easy to use , intuitive and fast software tools. Will my part fill? Will my part have aspect defaults? Will my mold work? Will my machine be big enough? And without ever leaving the SolidWorks interface.

4. Why should SolidWorks World attendees visit your booth? What will be special or exciting?

A drawing is worth a thousand words. So come to see by yourself the speed and ease of use of SimpoeWorks, as well as the full integration within SolidWorks.  Simpoe management will be present at the booth, and we love to meet our customers and resellers face to face. So come to see us. On top of it, very exciting news for SolidWorks users will be announced at the show. But we cannot say more at this time.

5. How can customers connect with you before, during and after the show?

During the show, we will be at booth 435 in the Partner Pavilion. And if you want to get a taste of the ease of use and speed of Simpoe software, you can register on our website to receive the link to download SimpoeXpress, our free light version.
