  • Software for Engineers Built by Engineers The great thing about being an engineer is the continuous quest for precision and accuracy, for the answer to an everyday life question or for a finite element analysis.  eQuorum started as an engineering company 20 years ago, and to some extent we still are.  At least half the staff are either engineers by background ...
  • Domo Arigato, Autodesk University Robots. Robots. Robots. Another year, another great conference.  Autodesk University 2015 continued the tradition of bringing tens of thousands of like-minded CAD/CAE/CAM individuals to a learning and exhibiting extravaganza.   There seemed like there were almost as many robots as people!  Small car-like robots, arm-hand robots building a man-sized bee hive, and even bartending robots.  The hit ...
  • National Manufacturing Day eQuorum is proud to provide Manufacturing Document Management Software. Manufacturing Matters. Our economy has grown in the last few decades primarily through increased productivity in the workplace.  No more is this evident than in our Manufacturing sector.  From robots, to automated engineering and manufacturing, to laser quality control, etc.  Our processes and workflows have also seen improvement ...
  • Engineering Document Management Software and the Internet of Things No one is talking about the practical implementation of IoT. Scott Brandt, CEO, eQuorum We all know about Moore’s law of technology as applied to the pace of increase in computing power.  In a similar sense, we can apply the law to software and technology development, though the increase in capabilities and speed may not be as linear.  ...
  • Mobile Access to All Your Information – Securely – Without an App Everyone Has One, So Why Aren’t We Using Them to Access Our Information? Using a mobile device, whether an iPhone, Android, iPad, or Windows Surface is common place.  It seems some people are physically attached to their devices.  Even at work there is constant checking of the personal device.  So if we are so comfortable with our ...
  • MegaBot, Star Wars and Las Vegas: Autodesk University 2014 We’ve attended tradeshows for the last 20 years and I have to say Autodesk University 2014 in Las Vegas was a great one! This year was all about the cloud, 3D printing and integration, and AU provided the perfect stage. I had the privilege of manning the eQuorum booth, showcasing our innovative document management solutions ...
  • Why Are We Insecure? How Do Document Management Systems Help? It may be me, but for some reason recently I feel much less secure than just a year ago.  It’s probably me, but the continual bombardment of headline news stories, online and TV messages, and the general state of the economy is making me shift in my chair (ah, the answer, get a new chair). We ...
  • Best Practice is What Works for You Tell me if you don’t have one of these stories. One of my internet connection devices failed and I needed to replace it. I called my provider and after going through several menus was instructed to schedule an “appointment” to have a service technician come to the house. All I needed was a replacement unit ...
  • Free is a Four Letter Word: Why You Need Document Management I hope I’m not sounding like I’m preaching, but I am getting frustrated and nervous as more and more companies are using free cloud-based box services to store, distribute, and manage their documents.  (I know I have said this before, so I guess it is preaching). And why are we doing this? Because it is free!  ...
  • I’m Too Sexy for my Digital Enterprise I am not a tweeter, but here is my re-tweet.  In several recent articles about the digital enterprise by McKinsey & Company I was amazed to hear things like: Only 40% of companies are “incorporating digital technology into existing products or improving their technology models” A small percentage of companies are using digital approaches for “collaborative product design ...


Metadata

  • Metadata In real life, users want software to simplify their jobs; not software that creates extra work.  The don’t want to enter field after field of index data (metadata) when uploading documents.  As a result, if metadata is difficult to define, users simply don’t define it; instead, they upload documents without metadata.  Many document management vendors don’t talk about ...

Lifecycle
