This helps enterprises be more productive and profitable by facilitating sharing of and access to information throughout the lifecycle of any project. Vault provides designers, architects, engineers, builders and manufacturers with a complete view of their information, while enabling access across the entire organization through SharePoint. </p> <p>As a Microsoft Partner Network member and ISV with Gold and Silver competencies and Autodesk Gold Partner and Authorized Developer, Cadac Organice has 25 years of experience in creating, managing and sharing CAD design information. Paul Smeets, CTO Cadac Organice BV: “Already in 2004 we based the development of our software suite for Engineering Document Management and Control on Microsoft SharePoint; Microsoft’s solution for Enterprise Content Management and Collaboration. Since then we have become industry leader in SharePoint Engineering Solutions, and we received early recognition from Microsoft for our leadership in these solutions. The integration between Vault and SharePoint shows that Autodesk recognizes SharePoint as the perfect solution to share design information with the extended enterprise. We are specialised in managing and sharing design information in SharePoint and can support customers with the right functionality and business process support.”  </p> <p>The Cadac Organice Product Suite enriches Microsoft SharePoint with a vertical market solution for engineering industries, providing additional functionality for Engineering Document Management and Control and support for engineering business processes. Through the integration between Autodesk Vault and Microsoft SharePoint customers are now even better capable of managing design and engineering information and documents throughout the extended enterprise and in collaboration with external partners. Cadac Organice makes it possible to manage published design information from Vault with all other (project) documents in SharePoint, including Microsoft Office, email and CAD, and provides functionality for transmittal and workflow management to share and exchange information with the extended enterprise and to provide feedback to the design team working with Vault. </p> <p>Clayko Group, an Australian Cadac Organice partner, reseller and provider of SharePoint solutions, looks forward to being able to meet the needs of Australian companies who wish to integrate Autodesk Vault with Microsoft SharePoint</p> <p> </p> <p>For further information, please contact:</p> <p> </p> <p>Clayton Dorrington</p> <p>Business Development Manager</p> <p>+61 8 9385 2059</p> http://clayko.com.au/Blog_News_and_Events/News/11-07-08/Cadac_Organice_Enriches_Vault_-_SharePoint_Integration.aspx clayton http://clayko.com.au/Blog_News_and_Events/News/11-07-08/Cadac_Organice_Enriches_Vault_-_SharePoint_Integration.aspx 32ab042c-f5ba-4b44-bc5c-355f6760a785 Fri, 08 Jul 2011 01:23:20 GMT SharePoint Framework for the Mining Industry <p><strong>Perth, Australia, May 13, 2011</strong> –Following the recent announcement by Cadac Organice,  Clayko Group, a Cadac Organice partner and reseller of the Cadac Organice product suite (a SharePoint based solution for engineering document management and document control), announce implementation services for the Cadac SharePoint framework for the mining industry. </p> <p>The Cadac Organice Product Suite offers solutions for engineering document management and document control and is entirely based on Microsoft SharePoint. Leveraging SharePoint as the platform for Enterprise Content Management and Collaboration, Cadac Organice is especially suitable for project-driven engineering industries like the mining industry. Over the years, it has been implemented worldwide by several mining companies, mining projects and suppliers to the mining industry. Examples are Exxarro, Koniambo Nickel SAS (a joint venture between the government of New Caledonia and Xstrata Nickel and executed by Hatch and Technip), and Sinclair Knight Merz, providing engineering consulting services to the mining industry. </p> <p>Based on their experience with these companies, Cadac Organice has developed a SharePoint framework to manage all operational documents in mining projects, such as engineering (CAD), quality, regulatory, specifications, and vendor documents, procedures, policies and external communications. The SharePoint document and content structure, as well as predefined libraries and lists, content and document types, metadata fields and values are aligned with policies and working methods in the mining industry. The framework gives mining companies a head start in using SharePoint and Cadac Organice for the engineering document management and document control needs. </p> <p>“The Cadac Organice framework for SharePoint will allow implementation partners like us (Clayko Group) to deploy solutions faster and at a reduced cost” advises Clayko General Manager Sheryl Frame.  </p> <p>“With the high cost of constructing, operating and maintaining operations, the ability to bring a project forward,  even by a few days, equates to big dollars in savings that we can help customers realise”. </p> <p>The SharePoint mining framework is part of Cadac Organice Explorer (a smart client for Microsoft SharePoint and enhancing SharePoint with functionality for engineering document management), and available from May 1st, 2011. </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>For further information please contact:</p> <p>Mr Clayton Dorrington </p> <p>Special Projects Manager </p> <p>Clayko Group </p> <p>+61 8 9385 2059   +61 419 295 974 </p> <p><a href="mailto:Clayton.dorrington@clayko.com.au">Clayton.dorrington@clayko.com.au</a></p> http://clayko.com.au/Blog_News_and_Events/News/11-05-13/SharePoint_Framework_for_the_Mining_Industry.aspx Clayton Dorrington http://clayko.com.au/Blog_News_and_Events/News/11-05-13/SharePoint_Framework_for_the_Mining_Industry.aspx c7315a8f-2d5d-4eec-97fe-a58b18a19b72 Fri, 13 May 2011 01:22:59 GMT Clayko Group Joins Women in Technology, WA as Corporate Sponsor <span style="font-size: 13px; "> <div style="color: #4a4f52; font-family: verdana; "><span style="font-weight: bold; font-family: helvetica, tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; color: #04507e; ">Perth company wants more women in the technology sector</span></div> </span> <div><span style="font-family: verdana; font-size: 13px; color: #4a4f52; "> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 10px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 12pt; margin-left: 0px; color: #4a4f52 !important; font-size: 10pt !important; font-family: verdana !important; overflow-x: auto; "><span style="overflow-x: auto; line-height: 17px; font-family: calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; color: #4a4f52; ">PERTH, Western Australia (7 April 2011) </span>Formalising a long history of support, <a href="http://www.witwa.org.au/" style="color: #4e96e6; outline-style: none; outline-width: initial; outline-color: initial; ">Women in Technology, WA (WITWA)</a> is thrilled to announce <a href="http://www.clayko.com.au/" style="color: #4e96e6; outline-style: none; outline-width: initial; outline-color: initial; ">Clayko Group</a> <span style="font-size: 10pt !important; overflow-x: auto; font-family: verdana; color: #4a4f52; "> </span>has signed on as a corporate sponsor of the women’s technology group.</p> <p style="margin-top: 10px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #4a4f52 !important; font-size: 10pt !important; font-family: verdana !important; overflow-x: auto; "></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-top: 10px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #4a4f52 !important; font-size: 10pt !important; font-family: verdana !important; overflow-x: auto; ">“<em>We’ve had a close relationship with Clayko over the years.
