“Significant benefit has been the ability to integrate SOLIDWORKS CAD to the Oscar Pro ERP seamlessly.”

Atte Karppinen, Design Engineer, Dynaset Ltd.

Dynaset from Ylöjärvi, Finland

Dynaset is the leading global manufacturer of hydraulic generators, power washers, and compressors. Dynaset products are used for hundreds of applications in various industries all around the world.

SOLUTION
Dynaset is using the connector for exporting their CAD bill of materials to the ERP system, automatically creating new items in ERP. At the same time, they are automatically converting needed drawings to PDF, storing them in the file system, and linking to the created items in ERP.
