PTC Arbortext differentiator: Digital thread

What is the Digital Thread?

Digital threads seek to create homogeneity and simple universal access to data. They follow a single set of related data as it weaves in and out of business processes and functions to create a continuity and accessibility.

With Arbortext you can create a single flow of data and resources that will enable the linking of content all the way out to someone in the field.
