Dauphin North America
- Cut design cycles by 50 percent
- Substantially reduced design errors
- Developed product families from a single design
- Improved data compatibility with partners worldwide
Dauphin North America designs, manufactures, and markets ergonomic office furniture specifically developed for the North American market. The company migrated from its AutoCAD 2D software to the Autodesk Inventor 3D CAD system, primarily to remain compatible with its German design group, which was using Autodesk Mechanical Desktop. But it ran into compatibility and stability problems between the two types of software.
The company, including its German design group, chose to transition to SolidWorks Professional software because of its ease of use, advanced surfacing tools, configuration capabilities, responsive reseller support, and compatibility with Mechanical Desktop and 2D legacy data. By deploying SolidWorks software, Dauphin North America has cut its design cycles by 50 percent, substantially reduced its design errors, developed product families from a single design, and improved its data compatibility with partners worldwide.
