West-Mark Tank Increases Productivity with Autodesk Vault Professional
West-Mark Tank produces transport tanks for various industries, including food and beverage, oil and gas, and specialty industries. A better communication solution was needed for the engineering and manufacturing teams to manage a large number of designs and provide assembly details.
West-Mark Tank first sought to implement a centralized digital repository for engineering projects so their manufacturing team could quickly find and review designs to ease collaboration and increase productivity. In the fall of 2022, West-Mark Tank contacted Hagerman & Company for advice on the best way to collaborate on a project with another firm that needed access to specific files in their Vault. After a brief call with West-Mark Tank and the company on the east coast, the two firms could collaborate within days.
Hagerman & Company assisted West-Mark Tank with an Autodesk® Vault Professional implementation and provided consulting and implementation services to enable the quick search for projects on demand. The thin client viewing technology allows the manufacturing team to view the files for collaboration and design validation easily. When the need to collaborate with the east-coast firm arose, West-Mark Tank was able to utilize Vault Gateway, which allows remote users to connect to a Vault securely without the need for a VPN.
The Vault Professional implementation was completed on time and on budget and has helped the manufacturing and engineering teams to communicate more effectively. Annual CAD and Vault upgrades enable West-Mark Tank to keep up with technology and increase throughput and production capabilities. Additionally, the ability to quickly collaborate with another firm allowed West-Mark Tank to meet their timeline for project deliverables.
Hagerman & Company’s technical team was accessible and responsive and provided answers to questions promptly, allowing any ongoing support issues to be resolved quickly. This level of accessibility allowed West-Mark Tank to focus on their work and to grow their business.
