Dallas, Texas, Feb. 1, 2016 — SolidPartners, a SolidWorks Gold Partner, today announced special pricing for its simple, powerful and affordable product data management (PDM) tool Activault. Throughout the month of February 2016, SolidWorks users in North America can get access to this full-featured PDM for $5000, including server, web training and setup for up to 12 users.
“Small and medium-sized manufacturers need a simple, powerful and affordable PDM tool,” said Moazzam Khan, SolidPartners General Manager, Business Operations. “Unfortunately, many solutions are simply too expensive for most of these businesses. By providing Activault at this price point, we’re hoping to help these small and medium manufacturers improve their product data management processes while saving up to 95% on the cost of other PDM solutions.”
For over 15 years Activault has been in use by many large SolidWorks customers including Philips Medical, 3M, Danaher, and small start-ups as well. Collaborative SolidWorks design files are managed with ease through a simple check out and check-in process. The add-in AV tab within the SolidWorks window displays which files are being checked out of the vault. Once checked in, searching is fast with SQL Server Express database on the server. Users can retrieve related children files as last saved, latest released or initial check-in dates of the parent assemblies.
“Many PDM solutions charge $2,000.00 per single user per year – and that doesn’t even include mandatory consulting, setup and other fees,” said David Ondyak, National Sales Manager for SolidPartners. “Offering Activault for $5000 per year for 12 users means many companies would pay only a fraction of their current PDM costs, plus they could be up and running on our pre-configured server in under an hour,” Ondyak said.
Solidworks users in North America interested in claiming this offer should visit the newly-redesigned www.solidpartners.com and request a quote by February 29, 2016.
