Kenesto® is a simple cloud-based document management and collaboration solution for engineers and designers developed specifically to handle CAD documents from SOLIDWORKS, PTC CREO, AutoCAD to Solid Edge and many others.
Kenesto provides two ways to access the cloud, a web-based interface and a desktop client service called Kenesto Drive™.
Kenesto Drive displays cloud storage as a virtual drive on your PC with the same familiar Windows Explorer interface and functions. Kenesto Drive features include: automatic file updates (desktop to cloud, and vice versa) where the master file is located in the cloud, sharing & collaboration, file versioning, work offline, a check-in and check-out capability and more.
In addition, Kenesto provides a richer toolset for team work and design process management such as task and workflow management, discussions, forms, reports and Bill of Materials.
Kenesto offers engineers and designers power, simplicity, and flexibility beyond consumer cloud storage providers such as Dropbox by bridging the gap between simple cloud storage and expensive PDM systems.
Kenesto targets users that are focused on document management with sharing, collaboration and viewing for small to medium sized companies. Kenesto delivers unique features such as:
- Current Document: always access the current version of a document, unlike other storage providers that synchronize
- Automatic document locking: Kenesto provides exclusive document access while editing
- Viewing of over 250 3D and 2D file formats
