Sinequa Partners with Leading Manufacturing Technology Provider

The Partnership Amplifies the Power of Intelligent Search to Enable Greater Manufacturing Efficiency

New York, NY and Orange, CA – February 08 2021 – Sinequa, a leader in intelligent search, today announced its partnership with vdR Group, a leading engineering, manufacturing, and AEC solutions provider. With a focus on driving digital transformation, Sinequa has built a robust integration with one of vdR Group’s core solutions, CADnection. The partnership will enhance Sinequa’s powerful intelligent search platform, which is already trusted by some of the world’s largest manufacturers.

Manufacturing mistakes and delays come at a very high cost. Engineers need access to all relevant information to make informed decisions to produce optimal designs from the start. To do this, they spend hours or even days searching across many repositories, references, and systems, only to find partial, obsolete, or even inaccurate information. With Sinequa’s Intelligent Search Platform, employees access mission-critical content – wherever it lives and regardless of format – all in one place. Sinequa drives measurable improvements in efficiency by elevating employee productivity, increasing quality, and minimizing duplicate work.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) models are data-rich. They reflect intellectual property, design intent, spatial relationships, purchasing considerations, quality and inspection criteria, manufacturing processes, change history and much more. Sinequa’s integration with CADnection unlocks this information, making it fully usable, on its own or combined with other organizational knowledge.

“Sinequa and vdR share the belief that highly complex manufacturing organizations need a highly intelligent search tool and we are excited to partner with them to build on our fast-growing momentum in the manufacturing industry. Sinequa’s platform has created entirely new ways for employees to make better, more informed decisions,” said Xavier Pornain, senior vice president, North America at Sinequa. “Given the complex nature of CAD models, using text to find images is a challenge that CADnection solves. This is a tremendous added value for our customers.”

“This combined solution has been years in the making,” said Martin van der Roest, president of vdR. “It is the exciting convergence of powerful technologies, including CAD model data extraction and enrichment, browser-based 2D and 3D visualization, search, natural language processing and AI. We are thrilled to be partnering with Sinequa to deliver on the unmet needs sought after by engineering and manufacturing organizations.”
