Is this your situation?
It can be hard to justify a full time CAD technician
Are you are letting down your clients as you do not have a reliable CAD resource? Have you tried an array of solutions? You know you need to produce good quality CAD drawings on a regular basis but can’t justify another salary. There are not 40 hours of CAD work per week on a regular basis to employee someone else. There might only be 4, 8 or even 16 hours a week. To conclude the best option will be hiring a Part time CAD technician for your business. If you are interest you can contact us on 01462 514 300.
Contractors want continuous work
You could get a freelancer/CAD Contractor either via an agency or direct. They would request continued work. The contractor or agency will want 5 days per week with a certain committal for a few months. The agency would like their fees.
You could train an in-house staff member in CAD
We have often seen existing staff members receiving CAD training to deal with occasional CAD work. They are sent off to training for a few days and are then expected to deal with the CAD requirements of the company. The issue is that they will only use CAD occasionally, which then results in their already very limited time (due to their other commitments) being spent on refreshing their training than actually carrying out the CAD work.
Can be difficult to justify the software and hardware investment
Personnel cost is one thing, a CAD Workstation is substantially more expensive than a standard office PC. At Jensen Consulting we pay between £2,000 to £3,000 for our standard CAD Workstations. In addition to that, there is the CAD Software which can easily run into five figures depending on requirements (Solidworks & AutoCad setup).
