Off the Shelf CAD Integration for Acumatica

CADTalk is not a custom software solution.

We all know the perils of custom built solutions. Yeah, they work now but what happens when you need to upgrade your CAD, PDM, or PLM system in the future? Is the custom integration going to work? Will it take advantage of the new features? Will that company continue to support it? The list goes on and on.

CADTalk utilizes a configurable framework to standardize the integration between CAD/PDM software and Acumatica. That way you will have the flexibility that you need without the downsides of custom built solutions.

We don’t claim to work with every ERP system on the market. However, we guarantee ongoing rich integration to every system we do support. Therefore, before we decide to integrate to any package we must have a clear path for long term support and deep integration. In our opinion, that requires long term established partnerships and in depth knowledge of each system that we integrate to.


Directly Read Native CAD File Formats (No CAD Software License Required)

CADTalk can directly read the native CAD file formats. It is very common for companies to have a Manufacturing Engineer or downstream production person entering stock codes, structures and routings in Acumatica. Using CADTalk, those users will be able to directly read the native CAD formats from their engineers or outside customers without requiring a full license of the CAD software. In addition to the above supported CAD Systems, CADTalk also supports reading any text based file format such as xml, csv, fixed width, or delimited file.

  1. Add Operations
