SpaceClaim Announces Data Management for SharePoint
and Inforbix Product Data Aps Support
CONCORD, MA, July 17, 2012 – SpaceClaim, the leader in easy and accessible 3D CAD for engineering, mechanical design, and manufacturing, announced today the immediate availability of SpaceClaim Data Management for SharePoint, an easy to deploy workgroup data management tool for extended engineering and product development teams to collaborate around engineering designs and data.
SpaceClaim Data Management is based on Microsoft SharePoint and is available to all SpaceClaim 2012 customers at no additional charge, and works with existing SharePoint servers, making the cost of deployment negligible for the majority of companies that already use Microsoft Corp. solutions. It provides basic workgroup-level check-in, check-out, and versioning for SpaceClaim documents, including support for external dependencies, parts, assemblies, drawings, and 3D markups. No external user interface is required. Developed using the SpaceClaim API and SharePoint, this new SpaceClaim add-in leverages the same technology available to all SpaceClaim partners, representing the type of seamless integration that anyone, including SpaceClaim customers, can add to their SpaceClaim installations.
“We’ve created a document management system that extends our core philosophy of providing easy-to-use, cost effective, and enterprise-friendly tools that are also very easy to deploy,” said Chris Randles, President and CEO, SpaceClaim. “SpaceClaim already fully uses the Microsoft stack on the desktop, and we have always been an innovator in the use of Microsoft technologies, such as our full support for multi-touch and gesture-based UI. Using SharePoint as a platform for SpaceClaim Data Management makes perfect sense for our end-users, as well as our customers’, IT departments.”
SpaceClaim also announced today that Inforbix now supports the SpaceClaim data format. SpaceClaim users can now use Inforbix to aggregate, find, access, reuse, and share SpaceClaim data types located anywhere in their company in addition to other data types such as CAD drawings, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, and PDFs. Inforbix is an easy to install and use cloud-based productivity tool that works by scanning SpaceClaim files along with other data types and securely send index information to the cloud where it is processed. On-premise data is not touched, moved, modified, or migrated. Watch a video describing this new capability.
