In a recent PLM (product lifecycle management) report published in France (“Marché Français du PLM 2007”), Missler Software was classified as the “2nd CAD and 2nd CAM midrange software developer in France, in front of Autodesk and SolidWorks.” Missler Software is pointing to this development to refute the underestimation of its market position that others have recently published.
Missler Software has been a CAD/CAM developer for 20 years. According to Marc Choquin, the company’s sales director for France, “This report confirms what we have known internally within the company for a long time: TopSolid is a leading CAD and CAM solution worldwide.”
Within France, the name TopSolid is often associated with pure CAM. While internal Missler Software management thinks TopSolid’Cam is probably the number one CAM solution used in France, TopSolid’Design is also prominent in the market for CAD mechanical software. TopSolid’Design is a powerful design solution that can be used independently of the rest of the TopSolid range, though its developer suggests that the greatest productivity gains are achieved customers use the integrated TopSolid CAD/CAM system.
