Hi Everyone, 


Our company had been using SW 2015 with the 2015 pdm and it was working great. Having the vault built into SW made it easy for our group of engineers to manage the data. There are only 4 of us. 


We just switched to SW 2019 and thus, 2019 PDM (file explorer type PDM). This doesn't work well for us since we don't have a CAD data administrator. Checking in parts and assemblies is taking hours instead of minutes. 


My question: are there any 3rd party CAD data management programs that are like the 2015 version of SW PDM?
