3DEXPERIENCE Platform’s Simple Licensing Model Offers Casual Access Options

The solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform enable collaboration with your team. All data generated for each project is securely managed—and accessible—on the platform. With an internet connection and a web browser, the platform makes it easy to work from anywhere. Licensing supports the typical one-year subscription model, which is common to many cloud-based systems, with the welcome bonus of simplified license administration, monitoring, and management.

What about users who may need occasional access to the platform, such as managers, executives, suppliers, or vendors? They need tools to participate in design review meetings, manage task lists, or keep a close handle on development status; their needs are more collaboration and management orientated.

That’s when the casual license on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform comes into play.

Casual license usage is for companies that have team members who need only part-time access to the platform. The role provides users with a limited time to access the cloud-basedplatform to manage and review content, as well as collaborate and share feedback. The packages are sold in 3-month increments.

All licenses are based on the named user, eliminating serial number tracking or worrying about misuse. This translates to flexibility for users. Licenses are not locked to machines. Use any machine, anywhere, without deactivating and activating licenses.

Casual License Capabilities

As a casual user of the Collaborative Business Innovator and Collaborative Industry Innovator roles, you get full access to all functionality. There is no software to install or download. Neither CAD software nor CAD expertise is required to participate in the conversation. Customized dashboard views enable you to display only the information you need to get your job done.

Invite your external stakeholders to 3DSwym communities—public or private—to exchange information, share ideas, provide feedback, or participate in surveys directly from within your communities. Engage in real-time persistent conversations and enrich interactions with audio and video calls.

Other apps enable design reviews. There is no need to install additional plugins to preview 3D and 2D models. Even non-engineers, such as managers and executives, can interrogate the model—zoom, rotate, take measurements—and make comments.

You also can access tasks, change actions, lifecycle capabilities, and more. Automatically receive notifications when work is promoted to the next level of maturity. Organize, view, and track individual and shared tasks, including issues and change actions, from creation through completion. Readily access information, including who is responsible, delivery dates, and related content.

The platform makes it easy to see the latest status, and since everyone is accessing real-time data, the team stays in sync effortlessly.

License Management Made Easy

Roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform are managed through a simple and innovative license management system. The Member Control Dashboard on the platform allows admins to monitor and manage users and their licenses, whether standard or casual. Through this intuitive interface, admins can easily track how many licenses are available and consumed, who uses the license, and easily grant or remove a license. It is also easy to alter the licenses of existing users or remove people who leave the company—with one click.
