New Trends in LEDAS’ BusinessDuring the last five years, LEDAS increased its income threefold, adding new customers to its portfolio of success stories. The fastest growth occurred in digital medicine, where five software vendors inked contracts with LEDAS for high-quality research and software development services.
Digital medicine, unlike traditional CAD, is dedicated more to processing polygonal meshes and volumetric 3D images, areas in which LEDAS has gained great experience in recent years. The company’s expertise is primarily on digital stomatology (orthodontics, implants, oral hygiene). Here, LEDAS gained customers in three countries, with the largest project coming from the USA.
“Now we consider and market ourselves as a service with a unique expertise in specialized areas of the CAD market, such as digital medicine, 3D cloud solutions, and BIM,” said Alexey Ershov, CEO of LEDAS. ”These areas are in fact quite large, but there are far fewer service companies serving them, because working in these areas require a lot of knowledge and experience.”
New Logo and Web SiteA new logo was introduced, and the LEDAS Web site was redesigned to better cover LEDAS’ knowledge and skills in traditional and new areas.
“As the embodiment of rethinking our business focus, the new logo reflects our intent to specialize in new areas of expertise,” said Mr Ershov. “We are focusing on demanding areas of specialization, creating long-term business opportunities for us and our partners.”
Traditional ExpertiseIn addition to the new areas, LEDAS core expertise in development and usage of contemporary 3D engines and libraries, including 3D kernels, has grown continuously, thanks to its work in cooperation with C3D Labs, Open Design Alliance, and ASCON. The same can be said about CAD and CAM, where LEDAS is already very well known thanks to many R&D projects, initially through a long-term cooperation agreement with Dassault Systèmes, and today mainly with EU customers.
“Undoubtedly, we will continue to do work in the general CAD/CAM industry, to make our expertise broader and more integrated,” added Mr Ershov. ”LEDAS has solid experience in big industrial projects, profound skills in software engineering, and fundamental competence in mathematics — the best mixture when you need someone developing your challenging CAD/CAM software projects.”
