"Upchain - easy to get started"

What do you like best?

We found Upchain to be simple to get started. After initial consultation, we were able to start with a small-scale pilot with a very short set-up period. The licencing model and the implementation timeframe was very simple when compared to alternate solutions. This was helpful to us to make a decision to do a in-house pilot trail to fully evaluate Upchain at a very low-risk . The flexibility of Upchain to customise the software to suit our needs will give us greater use of PLM software.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see some more comprehensive tutorials and worked examples. Perhaps regional experts would be beneficial to further improve the implementation. Worked examples or case studies with details of issues, solutions and work-arounds would be good too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

worth including in your evaluation

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have no existing PLM system. We have identified a need to improve the engineering change system, project management tools and dashboards. The initial use of Upchain , is engineering focused. Out initial target is project managing the design of engineering projects, with dashboards, project management tools & engineering change. Progressive rollout to other departments will unify the produce management.

What PLM solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Nice design PLM software and fast customer support"

What do you like best?

Upchain has easy integration with Solidworks and Office suite, and the online web features are easy to use. The Upchain team has customized workflows for our process.

What do you dislike?

The PLM logic was difficult for us to adapt to initially because of our historic way of handling manufacturing document control. It was tricky to convert our released design libraries into "projects" inside Upchain.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speed of new design creation and release is improved, strict tracking of up-issues and approval of new designs is hugely improved, reduction of design association mistakes also

"Great Software"

What do you like best?

I like that it is easy to use and very self explanatory, making all of the jobs you do easier and simple. This software is very useful and keeps everything in one place so it is easy to find and pull back up into your memory

What do you dislike?

Clearly the cost is a huge downfall, but that is with anything. Cost has to be considered when defining what you are using it for vs what it is actually worth in order to do day to day business.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the cost of this product vs. its competitors. This software is very useful and keeps everything in one place so it is easy to find and pull back up into your memory

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

designing and engineering across our inventory. It was great to have everything in one place but with that being said, we worried about confidentiality and safety concerns regarding our original designs.

"Upchain has really helped us with change management."

What do you like best?

We deal with a lot of part changes coming from our clients. Upchain let's us have more control over the process. We can assign projects to people and be able to track changes and project info.

What do you dislike?

The setup takes some time. We had a lot of data that needed to be moved into the system. Upchain staff worked with us until we got it done.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives us one platform to manage part changes.

"Excellent Communication, flexible product"

What do you like best?

Upchain have kept open and frank communication during the entire process, answering any and all questions we had as best they could. When we asked some difficult questions, the CEO and CTO were more than happy to jump in to help clarify, really exceptional customer service.

What do you dislike?

I am yet to begin using upchain in a production environment. However the only thing I've seen so far that it can't do out of the box is serialise file naming of CAD parts.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

upchain will bring structure to our design process, and ensure that products and designs consistently improve. It will also cut down on rework, and duplication of work.

The organization and checking in, checking out feature

What do you dislike?

The help page is not very helpful, and some of the buttons in the program do not work.

Lack of communication as to when something needs to be completed and by who. We are very early in our experience, so no real benefits have been realized yet, but i am sure this will happen once we start using Upchain more.
