Our Alliances: 3D Systems
Helping companies go after the boldest of opportunities, champion change
Deloitte Consulting LLP (Deloitte) has formed an alliance with 3D Systems Inc., a leading provider of 3D content-to-print solutions including 3D Printers, 3D Printer materials, digital design and collaboration software and on-demand custom parts services for professionals and consumers alike. Through a complementary set of service offerings, Deloitte and 3D Systems can help clients anticipate the broad transformational impacts that additive manufacturing may have on their businesses . Our joint go-to-market strategy will bring together Deloitte’s leading strategy, innovation, operations, supply chain, manufacturing, technology and human capital practices with 3D Systems deep portfolio of hardware and software products, to help clients thoughtfully enter this new era of design and manufacturing.
In support of clients’ efforts to learn about 3D printing, Deloitte and 3D Systems have launched a joint “Discovery Center” located at Deloitte’s Rosslyn, VA office near Washington D.C. The focus of this lab is to demonstrate, educate, and inspire clients as they begin to use emerging design and 3D Printing/additive manufacturing (AM) technologies to help bring differentiated products and services to market.
Client Value: Clients who are simply seeking to anticipate the broader impacts of advanced design and manufacturing technologies or those that are ready to begin to innovate within their business using these technologies will benefit from Deloitte's depth of expertise and points of view co-developed with 3D Systems. Regardless of the size of a client’s aspirations, Deloitte’s Client Experience Centers have been developed to provide a lab based environment for senior leadership with an experiential, interactive and customized session to explore design and manufacturing of tomorrow.
Several physical centers are being created in which Deloitte's clients may experience an immersive environment into the capabilities and implications of 3D Printing. The first center, located in the "Greenhouse" in Deloitte's Arlington VA office, has over a dozen 3D Printers of several varieties, along with software capabilities that demonstrate the realm of possibilities for our clients. This environment is staged for client education into the technology, processes, strategy and innovative mindsets that are required by companies seeking to explore this new era of manufacturing and design.
Industry Value: The exponential rate of technological change is providing an opportunity for companies and industries to capture benefits as early adopters. Together Deloitte and 3D Systems can help companies go after the boldest of opportunities, champion change and pull industries into a new era of competition, one which is unshackled from previous limitations in design and manufacturing.
“In a fiercely competitive environment that is fueled by exponential technologies, companies require an integrated set of advanced design to manufacturing solutions to extend their competitive advantage and business model relevance. Our teams, through this alliance, bring to bear the expertise, technologies and processes required to provide our mutual clients with the right set of end-to-end solutions and implementation know-how to manufacture the future.”
