KeyCreator Direct CAD to Offer PDM Solution; Kubotek and Synergis Software Ink Partnership

July 29, 2015
By Business Wire News


Kubotek USA and Synergis Software announce their partnership to bring Synergis Adept PDM software to the KeyCreator Direct CAD customer base through development of an integrated plug-in. Adept PDM for KeyCreator will be available in late summer 2015.

Many of Kubotek’s larger contract manufacturer customers have requested a PDM solution to help them ensure accurate drawing revisions and engineering change control throughout their entire design to manufacture process. The selection of Synergis Software, with their 20 years of product data management know-how and support, strengthens KeyCreator’s legendary flexibility. The flexibility in this case is not in how a user can create or edit designs, but in how users can manage large numbers of CAD documents from multiple CAD applications, as so often happens with contract manufacturers.

Says Matt Carr, Vice President, Sales & Support, Kubotek, “The coupling of KeyCreator’s industry leading Direct Modeling technology with the PDM capabilities offered by Synergis Software means we can offer our customers a complete solution that will work effortlessly with files from multiple CAD applications and will also help our users simplify their document control process.”

Scott Lamond, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development at Synergis Software states that, “KeyCreator is a great fit for our Adept PDM technology. We have proven experience managing complex 2D and 3D CAD file relationships and related engineering and business content across a global enterprise. The integration of our products will make it even easier for KeyCreator customers to find and reuse design content, secure engineering intellectual property, automate the engineering change and approval process, improve collaboration, and comply with ISO and QS standards.”

A complete implementation of Adept with the KeyCreator plug-in typically takes one to three weeks to complete. More information on Adept PDM for KeyCreator will become available as the product nears its launch date. Find out more at
