The main advantage with ENOVIAworks is that it is system is designed for SOLIDWORKS teams that are not currently using a formal PDM or PLM system. It is easy to implement as it is a turnkey solution that allows you to quickly start using a full-blown PDM/PLM system without the need to purchase expensive hardware or install software.
