Share Article

Synergis Software provides products, people and processes that transforms the way companies compete globally.

“We have grown massively over the last 15 years while some competitors are really struggling,” says Christoph Kehrs, General Manager of SchuF-Fetterolf “We wouldn’t be in this position without Adept PDM."

Synergis Software, developers of the highly popular Adept product data management (PDM) system will feature the Adept 2011 product family at the Design & Manufacturing New England in Boston, MA, April 25-26. Chris Fabri, Director of Engineering Solutions and Jim Beliveau, Strategic Account Manager, will be presenting the capabilities of Adept throughout exhibit hall hours at booth #131.

Adept product data management software provides companies of all sizes an affordable way to find, manage and share their CAD designs and business data, while simplifying collaboration, improving engineering change processes, and transforming business processes. Adept securely stores and manages design and business critical data in a centralized repository, giving globally dispersed design and manufacturing teams better revision control and design re-use. Adept is easy to implement and use and is backed by a team of experts who are 100% committed to each customer’s success.

“We have grown massively over the last 15 years while some competitors are really struggling,” says Christoph Kehrs, General Manager of SchuF-Fetterolf and a long time Adept user. “We wouldn’t be in this position without Adept PDM. We have the same number of people as when we started with PDM but now have three times the output. It was worth every dollar we spent on Adept.”

Adept 2011 delivers advanced vault replication, two classes of web clients, and integration with Microsoft SharePoint. It improves global enterprise collaboration on critical engineering projects while providing a unified view of data and documents to all stakeholders.

“Our vault replication is unique in the industry, enabling customers to replicate only the changes between files – not the entire file – to other sites,” states Todd Geiser, Adept Product Manager. “Data transfers are faster, collaboration is timelier, and network bandwidth utilization is reduced. This is a huge benefit to companies that share complex 2D drawings and 3D models across multiple sites.”

Adept 2011 Release Highlights

  •     SolidWorks 2012 integration, with advanced viewing support
  •     Vault Replication with Binary Differencing

Adept Vault Replication allows multiple geographic locations to share a common Adept Vault, providing users at any location with fast, local access to files. Replication, which can be scheduled to run at any desired time interval, occurs automatically to ensure users always access the latest version of a document. When binary differencing is enabled, only the changes between files – not the entire file -- are replicated to other sites.

  •     Adept Explorer web client’s new interface

Adept Explorer, a thin web client that allows users to find, view and print, red-line, assign, and copy documents, has a sleek, new interface with improved controls and graphical components for greater flexibility and ease-of-use.

  •     Adept Reviewer web client

Built on the Adept Explorer 2011 platform, Adept Reviewer adds full workflow participation to the Adept web client experience. Users can approve, reject, re-route to a new workflow, expedite approvals, edit metadata, add comments, and more.

  •     Microsoft SharePoint Integration

Adept’s Integration gives SharePoint 2007 and 2010 users access to files managed by Adept from within SharePoint. SharePoint users have all the capabilities of the Adept’s web clients, enabling these users to find, view, print, markup, compare, copy, and, with Adept Reviewer, fully participate in Adept workflows.

  •     Powerful Transmittals

Adept’s Transmittals make communicating and tracking drawing and document sets to outside contractors, vendors, clients, or internal users easier and more flexible. Users can save and send a Transmittal through the Adept workflow for review and approval, create Transmittal versions, and track Transmittal activities in Adept’s audit trail.
