Kenesto Drive, now includes an automatic lock feature for modifying documents, including CAD files, and behaves like a virtual Local Area Network (LAN) drive in the cloud
WALTHAM, MA – August 18, 2015 - Kenesto Corp today announced the enhancement of Kenesto Drive to include features traditionally only available through physical LAN mounted drives and Product Data Management (PDM) systems. These new features include the automatic locking of documents. For example, when a file from Kenesto Drive is opened for editing in Windows desktop, Kenesto Drive automatically locks it globally so that other users at any location can open it for Read-Only thereby preventing any unintentional overwrites. The file is automatically unlocked when closed. Kenesto Drive new enhancements include:
- Works just like a Local Area Network (LAN) shared drive
- Auto-locks a document when someone opens it from a Kenesto Drive folder
- Offers status visibility of the document for all users who have access
- Allows editing of documents one user at a time and read only for others
- Provides access to version history so users are assured they are working with the current file
- Offers offline use of recent files
- Enables sharing directly from the drive
“Kenesto is delivering professional storage and sharing options for engineering and design companies seeking a very simple to use, cloud-based document management solution,” said Mike Payne, CEO, Kenesto. “Previously engineers were forced to use either consumer oriented storage products or complicated and expensive PDM products. We are delighted to provide a free solution in addition to a fuller, but reasonably priced alternative solution to our users and customers.”
Kenesto is committed to providing the best solution for customers by continuing to work closely with them. Kenesto’s goal is to help resolve daily challenges customers face in sharing engineering files and documents within their own organization and with suppliers. “Kenesto Drive has helped resolve challenges within our organization in sharing engineering files with our team and suppliers around the world. Our most challenging problem involves design conflicts and who has the current version of a file. Kenesto’s capabilities address these challenges and more in helping us complete projects faster and with fewer errors saving us time and money. Kenesto is evolving into an easy to use and very affordable cloud storage and document management solution for engineers – great achievement” says Frederic Ramioulle, President, Automotive and Transportation at KPIT.
The latest enhancements to Kenesto Drive are now available to existing and new subscribers to Kenesto Free and Kenesto Pro users.
