Provide easy access to product data

Enable collaboration across the digital thread. Provide non-expert users with simplified access to PLM content and workflows through an easy-to-use interface that requires little to no training. Users can experience product information in multiple formats — whether on a screen or in augmented reality.

Democratize data

Deliver what is needed for common PLM tasks, tailorable by role. The out of the box apps are organized based on the functionality they provide; viewing PLM information, actively participating in PLM processes, and custom apps with UI components,

Connect to other enterprise systems

Because ThingWorx Navigate easily connects to other enterprise systems, such as ERP, you can provide a variety of information from non-PLM sources; requirements, analytics results, drawings, 3D models, display cost, inventory information, etc., without replicating the data.

Choose from flexible deployment options

Deploy on-premises or in the cloud. SaaS (Software as a Service) is also an option. With SaaS you can share consistent data and insights across disciplines, divisions, and external partners with pre-configured secure instances ready to jump start collaboration needs.
