CONCORD, Calif., March 11, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —   Formtek, Inc., a leading provider of document and content management software and services, announced today that its Engineering Data Management (EDM) Solution is one of the first Partner technology solutions that has been certified by Alfresco®.

The Formtek® EDM Solution for Alfresco provides a packaged solution for managing engineering documents and drawings using the Alfresco One content platform, and integrates Alfresco with AutoCAD®, an industry leading 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software application.

The Formtek EDM Module is the base software component of the Solution, and installs on the Alfresco server.  It provides a pre-configured content model, complete with metadata properties and forms, for both engineering documents and drawings. For management of AutoCAD files, the EDM Module includes a converter which automatically renders DWG, DWF, and DXF file types for viewing within Alfresco Share, and it can extract attributes present in AutoCAD files, including those in the drawing title block, and map the extracted data to EDM properties within Alfresco. 

The Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD was also certified by Alfresco. The EDM Connector is a software plug-in for AutoCAD that allows users to interact with the Alfresco content repository directly from within the AutoCAD application. The EDM Connector maintains the integrity of referenced drawings (XREFs), as well as other types of referenced files (DGN, PDF, raster, etc.), by automatically associating them to the current drawing within Alfresco.

"The Alfresco ecosystem is large and diverse, with hundreds of extensions and integrations, and many more Partner-developed solutions.  We began the effort to evaluate and certify a select number of these technologies to help customers navigate the ecosystem", said Peter Monks, Director of Technology for Alfresco. "Certification ensures that a Partner's software product is fully compatible with Alfresco, complies with Alfresco Best Practices, and has product support available.  I'm happy to report that the Formtek Engineering Data Management Solution has met all criteria and earned the Alfresco Certified Technology designation."

"Formtek is very pleased that Alfresco chose our EDM Solution as one of the first Partner technology solutions to be certified under this new initiative", added Dennis M. Scanlon, Formtek's President and COO. "This certification assures customers that the EDM Solution meets the highest quality standards and compatibility with Alfresco One."

Formtek has been an Alfresco Partner since 2007. In addition to software products for Alfresco, Formtek provides the Alfresco One subscription and a full range of Professional Services in support of Alfresco implementations.
