Two new packaged solutions from Kenestohave been designed to address the requirements of engineering use-cases and workflows often missing from consumer based cloud storage and file sharing tools.
According to Kenesto, users wanting features including viewing 2D and 3D designs in a browser; automatic file synchronisation across desktop, web, and mobile platforms; version and permission control across project teams; and an ability to lock files for editing, can sometimes be without these abilities.
The new packaged solutions offer users a choice between a free and paid version, with Kenesto’s virtual cloud drive, Kenesto Drive, which automatically maintains desktop files and documents synchronised with Kenesto’s web browser app, is included in both.
With Kenesto’s Free version, users are able to view and share 2D and 3D engineering documents, keep team members up-to-date with most current versions, and access version history.
Kenesto Pro, available as a paid annual subscription, offers additional value and capabilities for those users that want to take control of the engineering workflow and design process with collaboration, task and workflow management tools.
“We’ve encountered many instances where customers have tried to use general purpose cloud file storage solutions, but have been left unsatisfied. Too often, these solutions lack the robustness needed to satisfy CAD data and operations, and also result in version conflicts,” said Kenesto CEO Mike Payne.
“We’re introducing Kenesto’s new solution specifically to address the many unmet market needs, while also maintaining ease-of-use paradigms that have made consumer-grade cloud solutions so popular.”
