SmartShape joins GICAN and becomes a member of the association.

We are thrilled to announce that SmartShape, the digital twin software solution, is now a member of the Groupement des Industries de Construction et Activités Navales (GICAN). This integration within the GICAN marks a significant milestone for SmartShape and demonstrates our commitment to contribute to the growth of the naval industry.

GICAN is an association that brings together the major players in the naval industry in France. It promotes cooperation, innovation, and competitiveness among sector companies. By joining GICAN, we position ourselves at the heart of a network of experts and key partners, which will strengthen our ability to meet the specific needs of the naval industry.

SmartShape provides a comprehensive solution for connected, programmable, and collaborative digital twins, designed to meet the requirements of the naval, military, energy, water treatment, and aerospace industries. With our innovative approach, we simplify the management of complex data and make information visual and accessible to all project stakeholders.

By joining GICAN, we reinforce our commitment to supporting the naval industry in its digital transition. We look forward to collaborating with GICAN members to develop innovative solutions and contribute to enhancing the competitiveness and efficiency of sector companies.

SmartShape is committed to valuing existing data without changing tools, offering compatibility with CAD software (Catia, SolidWorks, Revit, Microstation…) and data sources (PLM, PDM, MES, spreadsheets, sensors…). Our solution is based on web standards and is accessible via a web browser, without any installation or download required.

We also want to emphasize that data security and sovereignty are fundamental aspects of our approach. SmartShape offers a portable and reversible solution, where software and data are hosted on dedicated servers provided by our clients, with military-grade security. Furthermore, we use advanced encryption techniques to protect data at rest and in transit.

Joining GICAN is an important step for SmartShape, which will allow us to actively contribute to the digital transformation of the naval industry. We look forward to collaborating with GICAN members to promote innovation, share our expertise, and jointly face the industry’s challenges.
