by Rick Garvey on Sep 12, 2016

On average, engineers spend 15% of their time reviewing and managing data. Some even waste up to the equivalent of one day a week or more. 

With many engineering and manufacturing tools on the Windows platform, engineers feel that Windows should be plenty when it comes to managing data. The reality is, Windows Explorer wasn't made for engineers.
