The Challenge

InFocus Corporation has led the mobile projection market by executing a first-to-market strategy and by introducing new features and technologies ahead of competitors. To maintain its competitive lead, the company initiated a review of its product development platform in 2000, seeking a more efficient means for handling increasingly complex design geometries.

The Solution

The company decided to standardize on the SolidWorks Professional suite of mechanical design software. InFocus chose SolidWorks software because of its ease of use, powerful capabilities, integrated SolidWorks product data management software, and value. By implementing SolidWorks Professional software, InFocus has extended its market leadership position, set a new standard in mobile projection technology, reduced time-to-effectiveness for new users by 50 percent, cut CAD licensing and maintenance costs by 70 percent, and realized savings of 75 percent in hardware costs.
