eDrawings App on an iPad/Android???
Let’s face it, the world is fast paced and having data at our fingertips can be the lifeblood of our businesses. Enter the Tablet! Often times heavy computing is not necessary when we are “On-The-Go.” We can whip out an iPad or Android Tablet and effectively communicate business needs to our customers, and we don’t have to wait for the tablet to boot up, login, prepare our desktop, connect to our servers, yada-yada. The information is literally a swipe or a tap away.
eDrawings is a very effective product from Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS that allows you to communicate your designs with customers, without having to transfer heavy files via email or even FTP sites. So, it seems perfectly suited to have an eDrawings App for tablets.
Ever since the first iPad hit the market I have been getting calls requesting that Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS comes out with an eDrawings app for the iPad. So far, there have been no official announcements that this is being developed. However, this does not mean that all hope is lost. There are other Apps out there that will allow you to leverage your iPad/Android Tablet into an eDrawings wielding powerhouse. Citrix Receiver is one such App. The way it works is simple, you install eDrawings on your server at work, and then through Citrix Receiver you choose eDrawings from your “company catalog” and boom you are using eDrawings over the air on your tablet! Technology is AWESOME!!!
