Wire up your business

Give your team the tools to succeed. We’ll connect any CAD and any business program to your business process. Same goes for your suppliers, customers, vendors and more. Throw them a wire, and we’ll find a place to plug it in.

FAQ

I have a giant business process.
Can you handle it?

Yes. We have yet to see the business process that we can’t handle.

What does out of the box mean?

We’ve noticed that a lot of our clients have similar business processes. So we created templated workflows that suit most businesses without lots of custom configuration. It means teams can get up and running much faster, and gives you a head start for any specific configuration you do need.

What does your workflow system look like?

It’s like Office Visio. Basically, it’s drag and drop, super simple, and doesn’t take any hard coding.

What happens if my workflow changes?

Business doesn’t stand still, and we don’t expect you to either. We’ll change and adapt your configured workflows to mirror any business process changes.

What CAD do you integrate with?

We have plugins (e.g. you can use Upchain from within the CAD interface) for SolidWorks, Catia, Onshape, Creo, Siemens NX, and Inventor. We also integrate with 19 other CAD formats, including electrical CAD.

What non-CAD do you integrate with?

Google’s G Suite, the Microsoft Office Suite, multiple ERPs, plus anything a REST API can connect with.

“Before Upchain, we had a non-professional paper trail and design control. Now, our design work is like how we do things in our factory — standardized and repeatable. We needed a standard way to make a design, and Upchain provided that solution.”
