Are Your PDFs Costing You This Much Money?

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics [1] the mean hourly wage of engineers is $42.69.

A study [2] shows that the average time to search for a file location can be as high as 27.82 seconds.

An engineer, or anyone else, looking at only 50 drawings per day equals an estimated $494.85 per month.

With Drawing Navigator, you can reduce your search time to approximately 0.5 seconds.

The same individual as discussed above now only costs an estimated $8.89 per month.

Not only that but now every person has an extra 11+ hours per month to do something worthwhile.
