SPEAK YOUR MIND

  1. Hi Jim,
    I just read your PDM buyer’s guide and since we are looking at a PDM solution with V5 integration for a small company with only a dozen designers. We have only the most basic requirements which make Smarteam, Team Center, Windchill seem like overkill. That said I’ve been unable to find a smaller, less expensive PDM on the market. Any suggestions? Thanks
    PS. We had a failed Smarteam launch 5 years ago and are hesitant about this 2nd try at PDM.

  2. Hi Jim,

    I have a team of 8 people in my development team and currently use a MS Access database to manage the portofolio of projects. Can you suggest a software that can be suitable for my size and Budget.
