We’ve encountered many instances where customers have tried to use general purpose cloud file storage solutions, but have been left unsatisfied.

Kenesto Corp today announced the general availability of two new packaged solutions, which offer easy to use file and document management. Both packages are designed to address the requirements of engineering use-cases and workflows often missing from consumer based cloud storage and file sharing tools. These requirements include (1) viewing 2D and 3D designs in a browser; (2) automatic file synchronization across desktop, web, and mobile platforms; (3) version and permission control across project teams; and (4) an ability to lock files for editing.

Kenesto’s new packaged solutions offer users a choice between a free and paid version. Kenesto Drive™ – Kenesto’s innovative virtual cloud drive, is included in both free and paid versions. Kenesto Drive automatically maintains desktop files and documents synchronized with Kenesto’s web browser app. Users always have access to the latest version of their documents and files, reducing the risk of wasting time and money working on an older version of a document.

With Kenesto’s Free version, users are able to view and share 2D and 3D engineering documents, keep team members up-to-date with most current versions, and access version history. Kenesto Pro, available as a paid annual subscription offers additional value and capabilities for those users that want to take control of the engineering workflow and design process with collaboration, task and workflow management tools.

Kenesto users can now benefit from simple document management, sharing, and collaboration that provides improved control and visibility of the engineering process. “We’ve encountered many instances where customers have tried to use general purpose cloud file storage solutions, but have been left unsatisfied. Too often, these solutions lack the robustness needed to satisfy CAD data and operations, and also result in version conflicts,” said Mike Payne, Kenesto’s CEO. “We’re introducing Kenesto’s new solution specifically to address the many unmet market needs, while also maintaining ease-of-use paradigms that have made consumer-grade cloud solutions so popular.”

Both Kenesto Free and Kenesto Pro are immediately available to existing customers and new users.
