SMB Companies Leverage Dropbox and Free CCE CAD Viewers for Product Data Management
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Mar. 11, 2015) -- CCE, a leading engineering software and services provider, announced that small and medium-sized businesses are successfully leveraging Dropbox and the free CAD viewers on CCE Labs for managing product data and documents in their organizations.
At a time when a lot is being written in the press about new cloud solutions for engineering data management, CCE announced that a majority of its SMB industrial customer base is leveraging existing software for product data management. “As part of our engineering design services business, we deal with a lot of SMBs in the Midwest whose size does not justify investing in an expensive PDM solution. However, they have enough product data in their organization to make version control and back-up a nightmare. These customers are leveraging Dropbox and CCE’s free CAD viewer software, Express 3D and EnSuite-Lite, to essentially CAD-enable Dropbox and manage product data across the organization; this is a pretty smart move in our opinion,” said CCE’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Vinay Wagle.
Dropbox allows these organizations to perform activities like infrastructure-free file versioning, access control, audit logs, file back-up and recovery, seamless and secure file sharing, and collaboration, among other things, from the familiar confines of Windows explorer; there is also support for documents, images, presentations, etc. The part that is missing from Dropbox is its ability to handle engineering/CAD data. CCE’s customers have ingeniously leveraged free CAD viewers, available on CCE Labs, to address that problem.
“No knock on other new, cloud-based engineering data management products with multi-CAD support that supposedly do the exact same thing, since they likely use Dropbox infrastructure under the covers, but we have been able to successfully address this a long time ago without having to reinvent the wheel. So, Dropbox plus the free CAD viewers from CCE Labs is your engineering data management solution,” said Wagle.
