From Pilot Project to Wide Scale Deployment

Majenta and Dassault Systèmes support Assystem Energy and Infrastructure with their digital transformation journey using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the Capital Facilities Information Excellence industry solution.

Majenta engineers reviewed Assystem’s existing processes such as Documentation Control, Enquiry, Contract Start-up, Contract Variation, Design, and Purchasing, performed offsite analysis and mapped these processes to the latest version of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, built test environments, sifted through end-user experience and feedback, all the way through to full deployment of the solution.
