Get Your Data Under Control with SOLIDWORKS PDM

[fa icon="calendar'] February 07, 2017 / by TPM Admin posted in SOLIDWORKS PDM

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Your office most likely deals with huge amounts of data at any given time, especially if your business is based in engineering and design. First drafts, second drafts, that seventy-fifth run-through of an old project that needs revisiting? All of those files add up.

Many design and engineering offices end up in a kind of systematic chaos — designers and other staff digging through digital file libraries that haven’t been updated or even indexed properly, only to find themselves spending hours trying to find the right file instead of getting on with finishing the project.

How can you get your design data truly under control? With SOLIDWORKS PDM. Here’s how:

Take Paperless Workflows to a Whole New Level with Bluebeam Revu

[fa icon="calendar'] January 31, 2017 / by TPM Admin posted in Bluebeam Revu

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Do you and your colleagues pass so many project revisions back and forth that you're starting to lose track of all of your notes? Shouldn't there be a revision feature that's built in to your document creation software so your notes can stay with the project rather than end up as clutter on your desk?

Even the most “user-friendly” PDF software often includes oversights or features that actually reduce efficiency rather than add to it. In an office dedicated to paperless workflows, that can bring progress to a halt while employees are forced to print out physical paper copies, mark them up, add those edits into a separate document, scan them into the system, and then send them on to the rest of the team for review.

Don’t fall into the inefficiency trap. There are programs out there designed explicitly to make your paperless workflows run smoothly and provide every single tool your team requires when it comes to document management.

Our top pick is Bluebeam Revu. Here’s why:
