SOLIDWORKS Case Studies
Vita Inclinata Technologies Implements Cloud-Based SOLIDWORKS and PDM
In 2020, Vita Inclinata, an upstart business with an industry-changing rescue technology, was in growth mode. Initially an entrepreneur license customer of SOLIDWORKS, Vita Inclinata a flexible and scalable design environment that would meet their aggressive growth plans. In this case, cutting-edge technology also required cutting-edge innovation to improve Vita’s product design and development process, as well as workflows through various departments. With limited available resources to implement and manage such an environment, and no desire to have servers and hardware managed on-premise, Vita looked for a solution provider that could support both IT (Cloud) and Engineering aspects of a complete SOLIDWORKS Cloud solution.
Moog Music SOLIDWORKS Case Study
In keeping with its storied history and reputation for innovation, Moog Music (rhymes with “vogue”) moved its SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to the cloud with the help of Converge. By removing technology constraints, the effort has improved the company’s design and manufacture process, providing greater efficiency in all aspects of operations.
Headquartered in Asheville, NC, employee-owned Moog Music is known in the industry as the leading manufacturer of theremins and analog synthesizers. Founded as R. A. Moog Co. in 1953 by 19-year-old Robert Moog and his father, the company has continuously produced groundbreaking electronic musical instruments that have profoundly influenced modern music since the mid-sixties.
Choctaw Defense SOLIDWORKS Case Study
Choctaw Defense Manufacturing LLC (Choctaw Defense) is a manufacturing facility owned and operated by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Choctaw Defense started out as a finishing company building components for the Department Of Defense (DOD) over 20 years ago. They still provide those original units today, plus numerous other products that end up in the hands of the DOD. The majority of Choctaw Defense's DOD business is "build to print" where they bid on a contract to build an existing product currently in production for the DOD. Since those early days, Choctaw Defense has grown to become one of the largest Native American owned DOD contractors in the US. They are a designated Prime Contractor for three self-designed/fabricated products for the US Army, Navy, and Marines.
Fossil SOLIDWORKS Case Study
We love seeing success stories from our partners and EpiGrid has no shortage of them. They are the leading provider of solutions for CAD in the Cloud. Fossil Group is one of many brands that relies on EpiGrid to enable global collaboration and facilitate management of their CAD data in the Cloud. We at Converge were honored to be a part of the implementation of EpiGrid's Cloud solutions and are gratified to know what a difference they have made for Fossil. You don't have to take it from us, though. Here's what Brad Piercey, Fossil's Director of Industrial Design, had to say:
"We had literally spent years in an overly convoluted mess of other systems requirement; then Converge showed us the EpiGrid Axis Vault. It was as if they had been on our team the whole time. They understood exactly what we were looking for. Having a comprehensive implementation process reduced our roll-out time and cost significantly, and working with Converge, a SOLIDWORKS VAR who understood hosting and Cloud solutions, was a huge weight off our shoulders."
EpiGrid has written a whole case study about the process. Give it a read and let us know if it strikes a chord. If you're experiencing the same challenges Fossil was, then we can help you overcome them so that you can spend less time on IT and more time designing.
