Breakthrough Innovation

Create breakthrough innovations in a rapidly changing market, ahead of your competition.

Put customer feedback at the heart of your design cycle. With insights captured from your customer data, rapidly respond with solutions that your customers will highly value.

Breakthrough Innovation for Consumer Product designers.

Seamless collaboration

Bring teams together. Don't let location or access to data extend review cycles and lengthen your development process.

A change anywhere is a change everywhere, don’t wait for a colleague to complete their work before you can start yours.

All design data is shared securely to your extended team - managed and viewed from a single interface.

Seamless collaboration aids agile product development.

Protoype

Using 3D CAD renderings, AR/VR and physical prototypes to interact with customers, product development teams can iterate rapidly through many design concepts while incorporating feedback through each iteration.

Learning about your customers in this way, helps to uncover customer needs and arrive at a solution that exceeds your customers’ expectations.

Augmented and Virtual reality, renderings, and prototypes help gain feedback from customers.

Agile product design

Available on MAC or PC, a single integrated toolset for product development tasks such as design, rendering, and simulation, aiding agile product development.

Empower agile product design through your organization, by connecting insights from marketing, sales, and user accounts to your design process with integrated PLM.

Connect design with data insights to improve your products.

Frequently asked questions

What is the goal of industrial product design?

Industrial product design companies use consumer data from market research, Omnichannel marketing, eCommerce, and customer accounts to understand consumer needs, and design products and services for mass-manufacture, that align with customers values - and fulfill customer needs.

What is Innovation in product and industrial design?

Innovation in industrial product design is the process of creating a new solution or service for your target customers.

Rather than the incremental improvement of an existing product the highest product design innovation goal is the establishment of a new product category e.g., the tablet PC.

What is industrial product design

Industrial product design is the process of creating mass-manufactured products and complimentary services that align with consumers needs and values. The typical process involves research, concept design, prototyping, customer feedback and manufacturing evaluation.

What is the difference between Industrial and Product design?

Product design typically focuses on goods and services sold directly to the public (B2C). Industrial design can include goods and services that are sold to businesses (B2B). However, the two terms are used interchangeably, and can reflect the qualifications and job title of the designer.
