With 3DEXPERIENCE on cloud there are no infrastructure installation costs, simply purchase the licenses for the specific roles you require. A link will be sent for the first person to login to your new platform environment, once this first ‘Administrator User’ logs in that’s it, you’re in and ready to start work.

From here, invite other users to the platform, assign them the licenses they require to do their job and they’re off!

As your business takes its first steps into a new age of collaboration, you can explore how the platform may benefit you more by using evaluation licenses to test functionality before purchasing. If you decide the license you have evaluated offers benefit, there are no installation costs, purchase and assign the new license to a user and start reaping the benefits.
