PTC Windchill PLM Connector

Exchange product information across different PLM systems

In today’s world of global manufacturing, product development teams need to exchange information with multiple groups, including external partners and internal teams. Yet, each different organization will often use its own PLM system. Friction and miscommunication may arise when one group imposes software usage requirements on the other, or when both organizations opt for a “shortcut,” and work outside the context of a data-managed environment.

PTC Windchill PLM Connector offers the ideal solution because it enables you to exchange PTC Creo Elements/Pro files and associated metadata across PTC Windchill-based systems, dramatically improving communication and collaboration between internal departments, as well as external suppliers and partners.
