"This partnership signifies a superior technology solution for SolidWorks customers," said Eric Bouwer, CEO of Cyco Software. "Cyco Software is able to expand its portfolio of product integrations and show its commitment to a wide variety of CAD applications with its CAD-vendor independent product strategy. For customers wishing to adopt a SolidWorks solution and make or extend their EDM investment, they can proceed with confidence."
By partnering, the two companies have seamlessly integrated the best of both worlds in 3D mechanical design and document management technology. Key features of the solution include file viewing, parts management, document workflow, revision control and secure web access to SolidWorks designs for remote collaboration. As companies upgrade their 2D software to 3D, document management becomes critical due to the increased complexity of this next generation software. For customers presently using 2D software and wanting to upgrade to SolidWorks, the Cyco Software solution is the perfect choice. Being CAD-vendor independent, the solution supports hybrid design environments and helps integrate both platforms.
"Document management is of vital importance for our customers to create an efficient, streamlined design process," said Ilya Mirman, vice president of marketing for SolidWorks. "We are pleased to welcome Cyco Software to our roster of Gold partners and to offer our mutual clients a completely integrated, comprehensive design solution."
