In our last blog post we discussed ways that Upchain can help save designers time, but what about all the other departments in your company? Everyone is spread thin and looking to maximize the use of their time while making sure teams are communicating effectively. How can Upchain help outside of the engineering department? We’re glad you asked.
One way Upchain helps save time across departments is by giving non-CAD users access to CAD data. We alluded to this in the last blog post, but it’s important to note, since many departments, including quality, service, procurement, and more, need access to data that is traditionally locked away in CAD files. By unlocking this information and making it accessible in Upchain’s cloud interface, we have made it possible for people across the enterprise to reference it immediately. This saves them the hassle of having to request the data, and the time that it takes to wait for a reply.
Another team that benefits from time savings by using cloud PDM is project and product managers. Upchain’s convenient, easy to read and use dashboards give managers access to the information they need at the tips of their fingers. This means no more having to export spreadsheets and analyze data. They can quickly see the updates they need and assess the health of their projects at a glance.
Finally, a significant time saver, across departments, is making sure everyone sees the same data. This is because of Upchain’s native integrations as well as version and change management processes. Upchain integrates with all major CAD systems as well as popular business tools to centralize data across the company, saving teams time searching across disparate systems for the information they need. Meanwhile, Upchain’s version control, change management, and approval workflows standardize processes and make sure that everyone is always looking at the most up to date data. This can save you from costly mistakes throughout the product lifecycle which result in not only wasted time but also increased scrap and delays caused by having to reorder parts.
