CAD Services – What Outsourcing Can Do for You
CAD services companies offer economical and scalable resources that can help organizations manage varying CAD drafting and CAD conversion workflow. Most organizations have seasonal or economic fluxes in their workflow which can result in the need to hire additional CAD technicians during busy seasons and lay-off during slower seasons. This shifting CAD technician population can result in difficulties in maintaining standards of drawings, continuity of workflow and can actually increase your organization’s costs.
CAD services outsourcing with a reliable CAD services contract source can provide cost and savings benefits, improve standards and quality of drawings, help you maintain flexibility in response to changing conditions, and maximize workflows. Here are some examples:
CAD Services Outsource ROI
When all of your CAD technicians are in-house, someone needs to manage their time. Often, fluctuating workflows mean that these technicians are either too busy, and prone to errors, or underused. In either instance, you’re not making the best use of your resources. By outsourcing some or all of your CAD work to a company that provides contract CAD services, you have the benefit of a scalable workforce – one that you use as and when you need it, paying only for what you use.
CAD / CAM Services, Inc. is a company that specializes in contract CAD work. One of their customers, Kenneth Kelly of Kelly Surveying, says that “Prior to finding CAD / CAM Services and their CAD Perfect™ conversion services, it would require many hours for our draftsmen to digitize the maps… With CAD / CAM, our costs are lower, the conversion is done much more quickly and the accuracy is amazing. We’re very satisfied.”
The ROI of outsourced CAD services with an experienced CAD services company can save as much as 50% of the cost for in-house draftsmen while assuring high quality, accurate drawings, which minimizes the risk of onsite issues. This cost savings is as a result of these benefits:
- Scalable workforce – pay only for what you use, when you use it
- Up-front, transparent costs – no surprise
- Increased drawing output with a lower cost per drawing
- Eliminate hiring and layoff costs when coping with fluctuating workloads
- Minimize in-house training needs
- Reduce your investment in in-house computers and software
- Reduce mark-up times by using the symbol libraries that a good CAD services company maintains
CAD Services Outsource Quality
A reliable CAD Services contract provider must maintain consistently high standards of drawings or they will soon find themselves with no customers. We like the Cad Perfect™designation, which just about says it all. Cad Perfect™ accuracy reduces onsite issues. As Frank Maschino, Engineering Data Manager, at Tinker Air Force Base says about CAD / CAM Services Cad Perfect™ drawings, “The accuracy of the final digital file is of paramount importance to us. These digital files are stored in Tinker Air Force Base’s electronic repository as a permanent archive for all of our drawings. If we need to refer to these digital drawings or print out a new paper drawing, it is essential that the measurements be as accurate as, if not better than the original Mylar drawing when it was new.”
CAD Services Flexibility
Outsourcing CAD requirements offer any company greater flexibility in responding to changing conditions. Whether you have one large project or fluctuating workloads, a reliable CAD services company should be able to work with you in a way that suits you, whether you want to outsource all of your drawings, drafting and conversion work on an ongoing basis, or only some of your work on an occasional basis.
Outsourcing in this way allows you to respond to new work opportunities without committing to employing additional staff. With reliable CAD services outsource you have instant access to a highly experienced and professional CAD team whenever you need it.
