A constant within the world of software is what’s called “Shadow Solutions.” Shadow software solutions are usually implemented by a small group of individuals to solve a problem but create a silo of data within a company’s process. One example of this is Solid CAD solutions. Organizations will develop amazing CAD drawings with a lot of information but need to be transitioned out of this solid model state for the rest of the organization to use it losing valuable information. The solution to this problem is to use an integrated platform which can read directly from these files. SecturaSOFT is able to do this, by pulling in Solidworks files, understanding materials, products, BOMS and processes from such drawings to create the BOM in your ERP/MRP solution.
