From September 2006 to September 2007, ENOVIA SmarTeam's customer base grew to more than 5,000, an increase of more than 1,000.

"Careful consideration, deep understanding of mid-market customers' PLM needs and a comprehensive channel strategy to provide them with front-line expertise drove ENOVIA SmarTeam's growth over the last 12 months," said Alex Zeltcer, general manager, ENOVIA SmarTeam, Dassault Systemes. "Embedding ENOVIA SmarTeam solutions into the CATIA PLM Express and DELMIA PLM Express offerings enables customers to choose their starting point in PLM, and then grow modularly according to their needs. It is a clear expression of DS's belief that PLM produces value for companies of any size in any industry or region."

ENOVIA SmarTeam users report more effective collaboration between individuals and design teams, as well as time savings as high as 20 percent eliminating wasteful manual tasks such as searching for and managing technical files. ENOVIA SmarTeam helps customers to integrate and manage data and product information while tracking numerous design changes, and at the same time captures best practices, through standardized collaborative design methods which encourage innovation amongst globally-dispersed design teams, engineering departments and throughout the enterprise.

The leading PLM analyst firm CIMdata in September credited ENOVIA SmarTeam Express with increasing Dassault Systemes presence in the PLM mid market from 2006 to 2007.
