CADLink Serves Engineers and Manufacturers
By bringing together the two systems CAD and ERP, CADLink increases engineering productivity by minimizing the time and effort engineers must put into managing two separate systems. The system allows for less errors in that the data does not need to be reworked or transferred allowing for:
- using less manpower
- cutting out inefficiencies
- eliminating many cost overruns
- reducing development costs
- decreasing product design costs
By using CADLink, for instance, engineers can enter, view and update information automatically, including item master data and BOMs, without having to switch between two different software solutions. Not only will this eliminate ERP clerical work and the risk of error; it will also allow engineers to benefit from more streamlined product design and development processes.
What makes us so excited about QBuild’s CADLink solution is the ROI. If CADLink reduces two scrapped shipments per year on average or cut down on late shipments your company can save $9,000 per year. CADLink also saves on manpower, if your company employs 8 engineers, the software in labor alone can save your company $35,000 annually. These savings total $44,000. In our eyes, CADLink and Dynamics are a necessities for SMB’s in the manufacturing industry that employ engineers.
