For engineers, file and document management has a few requirements: (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 to name a few. Two packaged solutions offer easy to use file and document management and address these requirements of engineering use-cases and workflows often missing from consumer based cloud storage and file sharing tools.
These packaged solutions come in two versions, free or paid. The Kenesto Drive—a virtual cloud drive—is included in both 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 working on an older version of a document.
The free version lets users view and share 2D and 3D engineering documents, keep team members up-to-date with most current versions, and access version history. The paid version is an annual subscription that 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.
