Enhance Your PDM Vault Implementation with These Third-party Offerings
This month we are looking at some of the third-party tools that lend a hand in PDM functionality and integration. Autodesk Vault users should familiarize themselves with these Autodesk partner offerings that help streamline PDM tasks. Here are a few options for your consideration.

One company who offers Autodesk software and services is Hagerman & Company, founded in 1984. They launched the Hagerman Connection line this January. The product line features tools designed to expand upon Vault's features by adding search capabilities, email integration, batch printing and collaboration for outside stakeholders.

The Hagerman Connection Solutions product line includes QVP Connection, a tool to help customers search, print and view CAD documents without requiring them to have access to the CAD software used to create the documents.

Lifecycle Connection allows Vault administrators to set up a system of customizable email notifications to keep users up to date and alerted to changes as they happen.

Autoplot Connection is a solution for batch printing and publishing of files from their Autodesk Vault data. It automates the entire process of turning existing CAD data into print and publishing worthy documents.

Project Connection is an Vault plug-in designed to help companies working in the steel, chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries collaborate with stakeholders across their supply chain.
