CSI are pleased to announce that Checkmate Flexible Engineering, an award winning design & manufacturer of heavy duty dunnage bags in the marine cargo protection field, has chosen DDM for its CAD system SOLIDWORKS to address its short and long term requirement for Product Lifecycle Management.



“At Checkmate Flexible Engineering we were initially looking for a robust PDM system to control our current and legacy, going back to the early days of the last century, design data. DDM ticked all the boxes and more.

Since installing DDM we have automated our development processes right up to purchasing. Replacing our paper-based systems has dramatically reduced development time and given us the control we were looking for.

I would recommend DDM.”
