We are working with them to turn this health crisis into an opportunity to improve their near-term operations while strengthening the sustainability of their business models.
“The lockdown period has accelerated the need for our platform-based design anywhere, virtual production organization adoption, putting people care at the center of all. Thus, never has the virtual twin experience been more relevant. We are well positioned to help our clients to address key industry trends with new approaches and to ensure these improvements seamlessly connect to future transformations.
