EpiGrid and DesignPoint Announce Exclusive Technology Partnership to Enable CAD in the Cloud


Announcements / September 1, 2018


Today EpiGrid and DesignPoint announced a strategic exclusive partnership to provide CAD and PDM in the Cloud. DesignPoint is the first reseller of EpiGrid Cloud-hosted services with exclusivity in their SOLIDWORKS® territory. Despite EpiGrid’s national footprint, this partnership allows DesignPoint to be the exclusive provider of EpiGrid solutions to new and existing customers within their SOLIDWORKS cloud territory. DesignPoint joins the ranks of other SOLIDWORKS VARs, like Converge, offering Cloud and hosting solutions to their SOLIDWORKS customers. This partnership will enable DesignPoint to deliver scalable hosted architecture and top-level security to their SOLIDWORKS cloud users.


EpiGrid is the pioneer of SOLIDWORKS in the Cloud. As the first SOLIDWORKS Cloud-certified service partner to offer a Cloud solution beginning in 2014, EpiGrid has led the transition for SOLIDWORKS users to the Cloud for improved mobility, security, and collaboration. EpiGrid is the SOLIDWORKS PDM and CAD Cloud hosting expert. Their private Cloud implementation offers companies the security they need for their intellectual property while also providing predictable costs. The Cloud environment is fully managed by EpiGrid, so onsite IT and CAD admin are not needed. Offsite servers can be configured with multiple cores and NVIDIA GPUs. Since pioneering these Cloud-hosted technologies for SOLIDWORKS users, EpiGrid has perfected the roll-out and transition phase of implementing these Cloud solutions.





“The writing’s on the wall,” said Chad Garrish, COO of Converge. “SOLIDWORKS users are looking for a way to move to the Cloud. With Cloud tools increasing in power and performance almost daily, it’s no surprise. DesignPoint’s dedication to providing their customers with Cloud-hosted options is a clear indication of this growing need. We at EpiGrid are excited to partner with DesignPoint because they share our passion for providing great services, value, and innovative solutions.”

Known for its passion for maximizing its clients’ potential, DesignPoint aims to support its clients as they strive for more. By leveraging EpiGrid’s Cloud-hosted services, they can do just that. DesignPoint is excited to provide its customers with a complete portfolio of products and services.

“Our passion is Great Products, Fanatical Service, and Trusted Partnerships,” said Fran Lairdieson, President of DesignPoint. “We’re extremely excited to bring another great product to our customers through this partnership with Epigrid. For our customers looking to get away from traditional in-house servers, on-premise engineering workstations, and IT infrastructure, Epigrid’s flexible and secure solution is a great fit.”
