Is Mismanaged CAD Data Causing You Problems?

IBM estimates that poor data quality is responsible for the US losing over $3 trillion every year.* 
How much is your business losing because of misplaced or mislabeled files?

Who Reviews What?

When changes are made to your CAD files, you need trace-ability to know what change was made, by who, and when. Adequate oversight is a great way to ensure accountability during the review process.

Can't Find That File?

Sometimes a mislabeled file can mean the difference between a 5 minute fix and a 45 minute fix. If you’re not easily able to locate critical files, you’re robbing yourself of the biggest resource, your time!

Automated Workflow

You finish your part file, and now what? Wouldn’t it be great if that kicked off an automated workflow of notifications and approvals? You should be able to control what users have access to what files from a high level.
