Adept Explorer is a thin, web client designed for users who need to access documents and information stored in Adept, primarily in a read-only mode. It complements Adept’s full-featured Desktop client, offering a simplified interface that allows users to find, view, print, redline, assign and copy documents based on their permissions in Adept. Adept Explorer provides the same powerful viewing capabilities found in the Desktop client for AutoCAD, Inventor, SolidWorks, Word, Excel, PDF, TIF, and hundreds of other formats. Adept Explorer users can view version information, file relationships, the status of a workflow, and the audit trail of any document throughout its lifecycle. Adept Explorer is a great fit for read-only users in purchasing, manufacturing, maintenance, sales, marketing, and outside vendors.
Adept Reviewer includes all of the Adept Explorer functionality, and adds several key capabilities to the Adept web client experience. Adept Reviewer users can fully participate in workflows and approval processes, with email notification and time-based alerts supported. Adept Reviewer supports both upload and download of documents, and allows users to edit metadata in an Adept Data Card.Â Adept Reviewer includes Related Fields, which allows you to create hierarchical relationships or dependencies between data fields in your Adept Data Card, and to create auto-fill relationships between one to many fields. Price is per concurrent license.
Adept Creator is the top tier web client in the Adept product suite.Â It includes all the functionality of Adept Explorer and Reviewer, and adds complete check in and check out functionality for users who need to create and modify documents.Â Itâ€™s the best solution for all non-CAD users across any department who need to create or edit documents of any type, and for CAD users working with self-contained drawing files that donâ€™t contain external file relationships.Â Price is per concurrent license.
Note:Â Adept Creator is not intended for users who create or edit CAD files that have complex relationships like AutoCAD XREFs and Inventor or SolidWorks parts, assemblies, drawings and configurations.Â Those users require an Adept Desktop license.
