Solidworks:  CADTALK ERP



Go from Solidworks  to manufacturing 5x faster!

Here’s the problem!  

You are a manufacturing company, and you do lots of engineering work.  You create new and update existing items, bills of material (BOMs), and routings.    You are doing this work today manually or, at best, you have a multi-step workflow that requires a spreadsheet, macros, and an import or copy and paste routine. Or worse, you tried another integration that didn't live up to the hype!

 That process costs you up to $100,000 per year in data entry, BOM errors, rework expenses, and demoralizing your staff who would rather spend time designing and manufacturing than entering data.    When a $1.00 Bill of Material mistake can cost up to 100X more if it gets to the customer and when engineering services are billed at $130 per hour, it does not take long to see that the current process won’t work anymore.

It’s time to get your engineering and manufacturing talking.... with CADTALK ERP!


CADTALK is a complete off-the-shelf, live, bi-directional integration between your CAD, PDM, or PLM and Acumatica. Every time a new part is designed or an existing part is revised, CADTALK ERP’s configurable intelligence engine translates engineering data to create new or updates existing stock items, bills of material, and routings in Acumatica. It identifies the changes between data inside CAD and data already in Acumatica, so you know which information needs to be updated (bidirectionally) between the two systems ensuring that everyone is working from the same up-to-date information.

CADTALK speeds up the engineering to manufacturing hand-off by 5X, by eliminating manual data entry and BOM errors. CADTALK ERP focuses on the entire engineering to manufacturing process the manufacturing routing including all labor operations, manufacturing cycle time calculations, scrap percentages, and more. It can even select the best vendor and warehouse location for items and can create inventory records by stocking location.
