Alfresco & AutoCAD
Add Value to your Drawings
Your organization is divided and you didn’t even know it. There are the designers and engineers that use AutoCAD. Then there’s everyone else.
If AutoCAD is an essential part of your business’s workflow, it should be integrated across the organization. Your team need to collaborate on drawings, share them with partners, and secure them from the competition.
The Formtek connector for Alfresco makes it easy for the right people to access your drawings. It means workers can view files, even without AutoCAD installed. And it lets you take back control of your business’s data.
“In environments where good collaboration hasn’t been fostered, the engineers often feel the complexity of their work isn’t understood by non-engineers, while those charged with growing and managing the business become frustrated when engineers push back with a reality check on what’s possible.”

The Missing Link
You’re not making the most of your AutoCAD licenses without a proper collaboration platform. When multiple people need access to files, how will you meet their needs?
If workers save files in different locations, you’ll have an organizational nightmare on your hands. And they’ll have real problems sharing drawings
Employees left out of the loop
There’s no need to give everyone an AutoCAD license. But too often that means workers can’t view drawings that aren’t rendered
Conflicts and clashes
With engineers and designers accessing the same file, at some point you’ll run into a problem. File synchronization is essential
