infor-black-300-px.pngInfor has announced a worldwide partnership with CAD Service, a provider of computer-aided design (CAD)–led asset management software. CAD Service’s enterprise asset management (EAM) OpenCAD solution is  fully integrated with the Infor EAM application, not a standalone application. The tight integration will help organizations boost asset visibility without the need to run two or more separate systems.

EAM OpenCAD supports both DWG (Autodesk Inc) and DGN (Microstation Inc) drawing formats so graphics can be accessed more immediately using the software's integrated auto-discovery capabilities. Once incorporated into the system, modifications can be made easily without using AutoCAD or MicroStation. The solution is 100% Web-based, supports multiple languages, and is accessed through standard functions in the EAM system. OpenCAD comes as an additional module available to users of Infor EAM Enterprise Edition V.8.3 and above.

Having a tightly integrated, seamless CAD solution as part of the EAM system solves a number of issues commonly encountered when a system has loose integration to a CAD tool. No longer will people have to search some shared drive for lost drawings, make sure the correct version of Autodesk is installed, or have to jump to the CAD tool to view details of the asset being managed. Kevin Price, product director, Infor EAM goes onto say, "With this partnership, Infor EAM OpenCAD makes the tracking of asset usage, visualization of work areas and sourcing of information faster and easier. This more accessible, detailed visibility can increase asset reliability, reduce costs, lower energy usage and support regulatory compliance while making the task much simpler for the user."
