We designed Bommer for the engineer first with the belief that saving valuable engineering time will necessarily produce a better bottom line for your business. Everything we do is done with a strong eye towards how to help the engineer stay focused on where they can add the most value.
This is not your average engineering software. Bommer gets you exporting BOMs within 4 minutes of installing it (seriously, watch!) and can be adapted to your workflow without hiring expensive consultants.
Once set up, Bommer can save hours — if not days — of engineering time otherwise spent getting the BOM right. The cost of Bommer is much less than the cost of a mistake on a purchase order, making us one of the easiest ROI decisions on the market.
Bommer uses existing property storage inside your CAD files - such as SOLIDWORKS custom properties - to store your BOM data. Where that isn't possible, Bommer will utilize the best storage mechanism available to ensure you have control over your data.
Since your Bommer data lives with your design data, you don’t have multiple sources of truth to consult. You reduce the back and forth needed to verify that everything and everyone is on the same page. And the work you have done inputting property data can be leveraged further by including those parts and subassemblies in new designs.
We strongly believe it is not our job to tell our users how to do their job. Do you like to fill out your BOM as you work? We can support that. Do you wait and detail your BOM all in one shot? We can support that too. Some customers have built entire workflows around Bommer, from project checklists inside the add-in to cost estimators in our Excel-based export templates. For many, though, it’s just a really solid custom property database editor.
