SOLIDWORKS PDM in the Cloud

At SPK and Associates, we specialize in implementing and supporting SolidWorks PDM in the Cloud, along with SPK vCAD – SPK’s proprietary virtual SOLIDWORKS Cloud design workstations.  SOLIDWORKS PDM in the Cloud helps reduce downtime, address performance problems, helps save engineering and IT troubleshooting time, and allows remote engineers to use a BYOD approach to engineering.

Do you have these problems?

  • Is there too much downtime, resulting in unproductive and frustrated engineers?
  • Is it just too darn hard to get remote engineers access to your PDM, with acceptable performance?
  • Is it hard to find IT who understands SolidWorks PDM (and other engineering apps) and can easily and efficiently support it for your engineering team?
  • Are you tired of spending a bunch of money replacing your servers and expensive MCAD workstations in-house?
  • Are you worried your PDM data is not getting backed up, or can be easily restored? (87% of our recent new clients had non-working SolidWorks PDM backups)
  • Does your head hurt from having to deal with the hassles?

Is supporting SolidWorks PDM on-prem causing you a headache?

What our customers say about us

Our company had a plan for cloud implementation but we weren’t sure if we were making the right decisions on a few areas, including security.  When we engaged SPK, not only did they validate our plan, they provided so much more insight than we originally thought about and helped revamp our cloud plan for the better.

The personalized attention and detailed communication we receive working with SPK and Associates  is pretty special.  The accessibility of SPK team members is impressive, as is their flexibility accommodating the needs of our team and project.

Evan B

Director, Product Development, Leading Medical Device Manufacturer

SPK is proactive and from what I have observed, other IT firms are reactive. SPK is always doing things and solving problems before they make an impact. They drive innovation and suggest ideas to not only fix but improve systems and processes. They have the expertise to maintain and sustain our tools year to year.
