Breaking Down the Barriers

Critical tasks like engineering changes function best when team members can view and discuss the proposal before making decisions.

But files created by specialist authoring tools (like MCAD/ECAD) are not generally accessible to other team members, and there are no easy ways to securely share comments in context.

Security. Control. Context.

Visual collaboration provides the fastest, simplest way to collaborate securely across disciplines, locations and organizations.

Teams from engineering, quality and the supply chain can communicate about products more effectively, make decisions quickly and solve problems faster.

Key Features
