Strengthening Risk Management with Coface: A Collaborative Journey

In the dynamic landscape of global commerce, navigating risks while pursuing growth is a constant challenge. For Dassault Systèmes, a pioneer in collaborative virtual environments, managing commercial risks effectively is pivotal to its mission of fostering innovation worldwide. 

Dassault Systèmes has chosen Coface as its trusted partner to provide the business information it needs to thrive in the midst of complexity and uncertainty. Henri Bourny, Customer to Cash Director at Dassault Systèmes, paints a vivid picture of their journey. "Our mission is to create collaborative virtual environments for individuals and businesses, fostering innovation and sustainability," he begins. With 25,000 employees, 300,000 customers, and operations spanning 150 countries, the scale of their endeavor is immense. Yet, sustaining this mission demands more than vision—it requires robust risk management strategies. Dassault Systèmes turned to Coface's Business Information (BI) services to strengthen its risk management arsenal. Henri Bourny explains, "We needed a partner capable of providing both quantitative and qualitative insights into our customers' financial health." Coface emerged as the natural choice, offering a comprehensive suite of solutions tailored to Dassault Systèmes' needs. The collaboration began in 2022, with Dassault Systèmes leveraging Coface's rich range of BI solutions: iCON platform, Portfolio Insights, Economic Insights, and invaluable monthly reviews with Coface's Risk Underwriting teams. This synergy empowered Dassault Systèmes to assess the financial robustness of its 12,000 commercial partners across the globe, even in regions where information is scarce or unreliable.
