What is CADLink?
Bidirectional link to pull and push information from your CAD model and ERP system
CADLink is an effective CAD to ERP linking tool which allows the engineer to push and pull information from the CAD model to ERP system in real-time. This application helps to reduce discrepancies between your data and prevents the engineers needing to perform multiple data entry tasks.

Engineers are able to add, modify and view ERP engineering information through the CADlink interface such as the item master data, bill of material, routing data and effectivity dates.
Reduce Admin Works
CADLink streamlines the data entry into your existing ERP system, allows your engineers to spend more time engineering rather than double or tripling data entries and eliminating a risk human error input.

CADLink can pull information from the CAD model and push it to your ERP system to create new items in the item master.
Reduce Errors
Using a bidirectional entry point, discrepancies due to typos or mistakes can be averted. Mistakes easily happen when entering data into multiple databases across multiple fields for every assembly.

Inconsistencies in the Bill of Materials can lead to ordering errors, scrap, excess inventory or late shipment cost your company time and money.
Increase Consistency
The simple to use interface, allows the user to replicate relevant drawing information such as the description and revision into your existing ERP system.

Ensuring accurate information is transferred across identically, reducing errors and prevent potential conflicting information between work orders, sales orders and drawings information.
Why Change?
Manual or Push method
Without a linking mechanism like CADLink you are are currently limited to a manual syncing process or a push operation to update your ERP system, both costing time and causing potential errors.

Manual Method
Manually type all your Product and BOM details into ERP
  • Zero software cost
  • Error-prone
  • Time-consuming
  • OK for very small Engineering departments
Push Method
Export in Excel, CSV, XML, etc… Then Import in ERP
  • Cheap and Cheerful
  • Often requires data massaging
  • No bi-directional connection
  • No data comparison or validation
  • Often reliant on a single person in IT
