Managed Services

Administrative Services

A well maintained, proactively serviced CAD/PLM environment will always run better than the alternative. With that in mind, CATI developed the INSIGHT program to provide managed admin services to small and mid-size businesses. Our certified technicians will become part of your team on the ground, helping establish best practices, proactively addressing issues, and supporting the team through system upgrades.

PDM Administrative Services

We also understand many of our customers have limited IT resources or contract with IT service organizations unfamiliar with PDM/PLM environments. Everything from annual PDM upgrades to PDM Workflow changes are time consuming and generally reserved to engineers or IT staff who are already working long hours. CATI can take on those SOLIDWORKS PDM administrative tasks with our INSIGHT Program. An INSIGHT team member will be assigned to your company and we will focus on the administrative jobs while you focus on your core business.

CAD Administrative Services
