Dassault Systèmes on July 27 cut the ribbon on its new Vietnam office, formalising its relationship and reinforcing its commitment to one of the fastest-growing markets in Southeast Asia.
The new office is based in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh District, the nation’s political centre, alongside government offices and embassies.
With Vietnam targeting to achieve carbon emission neutrality by 2050, the French software developer – best known for its 3DEXPERIENCE platform – brings a firm sustainability commitment in line with its official market entry.
Samson Khaou, executive vice president for Asia-Pacific at Dassault Systèmes said, “Sustainability is at the heart of Dassault Systèmes’ corporate purpose. It is aligned with Vietnam’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions. The local presence that we are establishing here is an opportunity to support the country’s efforts to be a green manufacturing hub and facilitate the export of made-in-Vietnam products.”
Josephine Ong, managing director for Asia-Pacific South at Dassault Systèmes said, “We have a long-established track record in Vietnam. This has seen us collaborate closely with some of the most prestigious universities nationwide, and develop a solid network of partners and resellers. We also have a growing base of customers across Vietnam’s key growth sectors looking to deploy our 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”
Through Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, global leaders and innovators across 11 industries have been empowered to improve their product development, quality management, and regulatory compliance.
By connecting people, ideas and data in a single collaborative platform, customers are able to virtually design, simulate, and test innovative products and services before they are produced and launched in the real world.
“In Vietnam, we are working with the country’s largest private conglomerate, Vingroup, to support their digital transformation for their VinFast and Vinhomes businesses,” Ong added.
“We are active in the electric vehicle space globally and see this as a sector in which our 3DEXPERIENCE platform is ideally suited to optimise manufacturing processes and help propel the industry forward in Vietnam.”
The company also has its sights set on Vietnam’s emerging smart-city developments, with Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Danang announcing the deployment of smart technologies in sectors ranging from traffic management to health and education in the coming decade.
“By leveraging our collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform with virtual twin technologies, decision-makers will be better equipped to plan for unforeseen crises, as well as the impact of new urban projects here in Vietnam,” said Ong.
