“WebCenter, ArtiosCAD Enterprise and Cape Pack have already helped our design departments run more efficiently in a fast-paced environment,” said Brett Vavra – Structural Designer, Great Northern, Chippewa Falls. “One of the top things with Cape Pack going to the cloud is that now everything is just on one page and one platform so it’s so much easier and faster for all our users to work with Cape, calculate solutions, create a report and save it directly into WebCenter. All our designs from ArtiosCAD are also centralized in WebCenter and from Cape we can now easily save our pallet reports into WebCenter too.”
