Confession Alert: I have been feeling way out of balance lately. My schedule is full, yet constantly shifting. I’m working on multiple projects with multiple deadlines across multiple departments. And I can feel my blood pressure rising as I try to be the Master Multitasker that clearly I am not. With so many balls in the air, I need a system to make sure that none of them drop. Enter SOLIDWORKS Manage.

It allows teams to manage, share and collaborate on project timelines and tasks, complex business processes, and advanced record and bills of materials management.
A Dash(board) of Clarity
Think about how much time you spend trying to get a basic update on a team project. Let me guess – you had to 1) email the whole team asking for their status and then wait for their replies; 2) create a spreadsheet to track their individual contributions; and 3) build a PowerPoint deck to showcase the team’s progress to Management. Meanwhile the project is on hold while everyone stops to provide their reports. Sound efficient? NOPE.
Now imagine having a dashboard that instantly shows ALL of the open projects that EVERYONE in your company is working on in ONE easy to understand location. That’s Manage. Its dashboard functionality provides gant charts, graphs, timelines, and even timesheets that provide a clear visual representation of who is doing what and when. No more wasting time compiling the separate details across multiple platforms. Manage does it all for you.
An Engineering Tool that Every Department Will Love
More than just a design tool, Manage brings structure and balance to your operations, marketing and sales teams, too.
