Dassault Systemes announces JLR Supplier Offers
Jaguar Land Rover i-PLM 2.0 - The Engineering Toolset
Jaguar Land Rover’s heritage comprises some of the world’s most iconic vehicles, including Jaguar Mark II, E-Type, and the Land Rover Defender.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) emerged within Tata Motors as an exciting, dynamic global enterprise after having passed through the corporate hands of Ford Motors. Due to JLR's varied ownership history, a complex mixture of automotive industry software was inherited from its previous owners, and this was not scaled or supportive of JLR’s aggressive business plan.
Remote Working Challenge
Following the COVID-19 lockdown many companies faced the challenge of how to connect all their homeworking employees to office servers, securely drawing on centralised software licencing regimes that many software company’s employ. Integrated Design Management, a design house using CATIA V5 supplied by Desktop Engineering (DTE), faced this problem of continuing their operations.
15 delegates all connected from home
Just 3 days after launching our Live Online training portal, DTE has successfully delivered its first course to 15 delegates.
All delegates praised the format, commenting that it was easy to join, access the training collateral and interact with the trainer.
Software training with certified instructors
Desktop Engineering has launched a new service to support our customers in the current COVID-19 Lockdown period. Using the web portal GoToTraining we are now able to deliver live CATIA and 3DEXPERIENCE training direct to customers working remotely - at home or office.
MSC Software have just announced that they have relaxed licencing terms to assist customers having to use the software at home.
Effective immediately until 30th June users can access and use their licenced software from home using any necessary infrastructure (e.g. VPN) to facilitate this use.
There is no need for any authorisation for this temporary arrangement.
For those users who cannot access their company licence server from home there is an option to issue a temporary licence which is available on request.
The ongoing effects of the outbreak of Coronavirus/COVD-19 have disrupted all our lives in one way or another. At DTE, we’re continuing to work as normally as possible, under difficult circumstances, so that we can support you.
During these exceptional times, Desktop Engineering is adapting to the COVID-19 situation with diligence and care. We are doing all that is in our power to provide a safe working environment for our employees and ensure business continuity.
Desktop Engineering (DTE) have returned from a very successful Dassault Systemes convention in Monaco with a hat-trick of awards and accolades:
