Kinnosa® Workflow for PDMWorks® Adds Change Management for Multiple Impacted Items
PHOENIX, AZ., October 18th, 2005 – Empresa Solutions, Inc., a global provider and industry leader in collaborative data and process management solutions, today announced the 2.0 release of Kinnosa Workflow for PDMWorks, the industry’s only workflow and process management solution for SolidWorks’ PDMWorks. Kinnosa Workflow for PDMWorks adds complete engineering change management to PDMWorks, the de facto standard for SolidWorks® design data management.
“This release represents our continued response to direct customer feedback,” said Bruce Sherman, Product Manager for Kinnosa Workflow. “Customers consistently tell us of the challenges in manually passing around a spreadsheet that represents a list of multiple items affected by a single engineering change. With Kinnosa Workflow for PDMWorks they now can automate the processes of sharing the spreadsheet data or replace it all together with a traceable workflow that will dramatically reduce the lag time typically associated with these types of processes.”
Sherman added, “We will continue to respond as the SolidWorks user community speaks by committing to feature-filled releases to ensure that we are providing a product that solves real, common, and costly problems.”
