Collaboration Tools: Where do I start?

I'm somewhat new to Solidworks. I've only been running CAD professionally for a little over a year. Up to now, I have primarily been doing mechanical-only designs, and have been working mostly alone. I'm now involved with a project where I'm working with a board designer and I realize I have no clue about how to collaborate with other designers or even what tools and software to use.

When I propose a change, I have just been giving the board designer pdf's. This has been working so far but as the design becomes more complex, it's going to get confusing, and I know there are easier and better ways to do this.

She is using Cadence. How can I easily collaborate between SW and Cadence/Allegro? Also, can anyone give me some general tips about working with designers from a different discipline?

Thank you in advance for your time.
