SolidWorks World 2013 Partner Profile: DriveWorks

One of the things we’ve heard from SolidWorks World attendees over the past few years is that you’d like to learn more in advance about the SolidWorks partners who set up booths in the Partner Pavilion. So now through SolidWorks World 2013, we’ll be posting a series of blog entries about some of the partners you might think about checking out, and the people who will be representing them. Today we hear from my friends at DriveWorks.


Tell us about DriveWorks

DriveWorks Ltd has been developing software products for SolidWorks for over 10 years. Our products are sold worldwide and we have over 100 resellers that we work closely with and who sell and support our software. Our focus is automation, particularly design automation and sales automation. As DriveWorks products are very scalable, the benefits of automation can be used in the engineering department and also extended across the Enterprise. DriveWorks brings design, engineering and sales together.  There are many companies using DriveWorks as a Sales Configurator so that their sales people, distributors and customers can configure and order in a browser, using all manner of mobile devices.

What products do you offer for SolidWorks users?

Our software products are very scalable.Whether you are new to Automation or a raring to get your products configured online, there’s a DriveWorks product or license type to suit most companies and their requirements.

DriveWorksXpress software is included inside SolidWorks – so if you have SolidWorks you ALREADY have some of our technology.

lets you integrate with other company systems such as ERP, CRM etc and even SolidWorks Enterprise PDM.
As DriveWorks is sold and supported worldwide by our SolidWorks/DriveWorks resellers they can provide local training and support.

How can DriveWorks software help make a SolidWorks user’s life easier?

We often ask the question “Are your products the same but different?” Because if they are, the chances are that DriveWorks technology could help:

– Reduce the cost of custom designs

– Make it easier and faster to respond to sales enquiries

– Enhance product quality

– Reduce repetitive tasks so engineers can focus on what is important rather than copy-cadding

Why should SolidWorks World attendees visit your booth?
