Hi there! Let me report to you our recent activities, from late summer to mid-autumn. We have been busy!
It was in August that we launched a new project in the area of digital medicine. It is somewhat different from our usual work in digital healthcare in that it combines software with hardware development. It is the innovative hardware part to which we are paying a lot of attention. Although I cannot reveal the name of the client, I can tell you that we are working on a start-up project initiated by a team already established as successful entrepreneurs in Industry 4.0.
September was the month in which we organized a week-long series of technical meetings in Italy. Together with one of our biggest customers, we discussed their ambitious ...
The LEDAS Group recently opened a new office in the metropolitan area of Tel Aviv. This location is in the central business district of Israel and will help us to better deal with customers in Israel and globally.
Israel is widely known as one of the world leaders in engineering software through the presence of big development offices of established CAD/CAM/CAE vendors, as well as startups. This makes the country a major hub of the world of engineering software.
We have a long history of working with Israeli companies. Starting in 2004, our very first license of the LGS constraint solver was made with an Israeli company, Proficiency, which today is part of ITI, a Wipro company.
At the other end of the timeline, our most recent agreement was ...
The field of digital medicine is the top grossing one for LEDAS. In the past 3-5 years, it has grown to represent close to one-third of our income. We have completed more than ten digital medical projects in different areas for the desktop and Web/cloud, and in the coming years we plan to broaden our portfolio in digital health solutions even further.
And so it was that in Jerusalem on 9-10 November, LEDAS took part in MIXiii, the annual Life Science & Health Tech Industries event for Israel. Our interest in MIXiii is explained by a LinkedIn article written by LEDAS founder David Levin we recently posted, “LEDAS covers 5 of 7 areas currently having highest potential in digital medicine: Orthopedics, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Prostheses, Orthoses, and ...
The geography of the locations of our customers has changed considerably during the 20+ years of LEDAS’ history.
From looking at the map of our customers (below), you may think that we began in our home country and then expanded abroad. In fact, the reverse is true, because in its first years LEDAS mostly provided CAD and CAM software development services in Europe, namely to Dassault Systèmes from France.
In the beginning, we concentrated on developing geometric solvers and engines, a rather narrow field, yet very sensitive to quality. Over the following years, overall CAD software market was our primary focus.
In late 2000s, LEDAS Geometric Solver (LGS) was our flagship product, along with our high-quality R&D (research and development) services for CAD and PLM. Many ...
In these work-from-home times, we are seeing a burst of interest in LEDAS Cloud Platform (LCP) as nearly every day our team shows demos to prospective customers.
LCP is a platform on which applications are developed for online 3D modeling, and so I think that the primary reason for the record levels of interest is that companies are beginning to realize that the world and the way in which we organize it might not be the same after the pandemic ends. Businesses are asking their engineers to work from home, and this may well become the way of the future.
