SOLIDWORKS Manage eliminates tedious tasks with automatic updates
With the project management functionality in SOLIDWORKS Manage, organizations can plan each stage of their projects, assign resources and tasks, and attach required documentation to the project. Projects are always live and up to date with activities by all concerned, including the project manager and when users complete their work. Anytime there is an update, the project progress gets updated automatically.

With the new drag and drop workflow designer in SOLIDWORKS Manage, process states and decision points can be configured and user tasks, permissions, and notifications can be easily assigned. SOLIDWORKS Manage also offers a powerful dashboard and flexible reporting and functionality to provide instant access to critical business information.
SOLIDWORKS Manage provides a distributed data management system
