SolidPartners Delivers Simple, Powerful and Affordable Solutions for Manufacturing Businesses

Small to medium sized growing business can’t efficiently manage engineering and manufacturing data with emails and spreadsheets. The cost benefits of relying on manual processes to run manufacturing businesses are offset by the problems with an email/spreadsheet-based system:

  • Since data is complex, manual entry leads to high error rates
  • Manual processes take too long and are inefficient
  • Change management – including revision tracking – is difficult for teams to adopt
  • Design and manufacturing teams struggle with ineffective communication because they aren’t in the same place

By providing simple, powerful, and affordable solutions for small to medium-sized manufacturers, SolidPartners helps manufacturing businesses of all sizes be more efficient. This translates to:

  • More efficient processes
  • Less time spent tracking down manual entry errors
  • Better collaboration between design and manufacturing
  • Increased profitabilty
