SOLIDWORKS PDM Upgrade Service Features

By using the Javelin SOLIDWORKS PDM Upgrade Service you can be confident in the knowledge that your critical business system will be upgraded by an experienced Certified SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, which means:

  • Shorter downtime: An upgrade to a major SOLIDWORKS release requires that all PDM clients are also upgraded; which will result in your users not having access to the vault until the upgrade has been completed.  We can provide an implementation plan to minimize your downtime.
  • Upgrade expertise and experience: We are familiar with the common PDM migration issues.  This knowledge allows us to provide recommendations and/or solutions to resolve your issues.
  • Comprehensive certified service: We will perform a full upgrade following SOLIDWORKS’ procedures, thus ensuring that you will not have an unsupported scenario.
  • Optimize Performance and Health-check: As part of the upgrade, we ensure all settings are in place to maximize your database performance.
  • Peace of mind: Upgrading SOLIDWORKS PDM can often seem an overwhelming process. Not all components are upgraded using the SOLIDWORKS installation manager. Having an upgrade carried out by certified experts ensures your peace of mind for your critical business system and data.

Why a SOLIDWORKS PDM Upgrade is important for your business

Run an Optimal Build

Ensure that you are running an optimal build and any reported issues are resolved with the latest version.

SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS PDM should be on the same version.

Support an upgraded system

If you have new hardware/software, or your system has reached the end of life (i.e. Windows Server 2003) you will need to move the data to the new system. Our technicians can ensure that your downtime is kept to a minimum and your data is transferred successfully.

Be more effective

Take advantage of all the new SOLIDWORKS PDM features included with the latest version. Every new SOLIDWORKS release has hundreds of new features and performance enhancements.
