Low Cost PDM Solution and Help


New member
I was wondering if anyone could help me in finding a low cost and easy to use PDM software that will work with PRO-E and ACAD (2D Drawings). The Company that I work for is very reluctant to spend a lot of money on a high end PDM software so I am very interested in a inexpensive and easy solution to my problem.

Thank You

It also has a Web Client viewer to share data across the enterprise.

Additonal 3D CAD integrations supported are SolidWorks, Inventor and OneSpace Designer Drafting (ME10).

Best of luck,
