With CoLab’s Windchill integration, you can securely share design and manufacturing data such as 3D CAD, drawings, Bills of Materials, and product manufacturing information to folks outside of your Windchill environment. No more Wild West of drawings attached to emails or expired download links. Just easy, simple sharing in the browser.
You don’t need to hand over sensitive CAD files to a supplier every time you need a quote. CoLab lets your suppliers review Windchill files—spinning 3D CAD and freely navigating the model—without ever downloading anything. Permissions are fully under your control, and you can shut off access whenever you want. Since files aren’t being uploaded and downloaded all over the place, your IT team always knows exactly how and where data is flowing.
Stop searching through emails and meeting minutes when you need to report on decision-making and prove due process was followed. Unlike using Windchill on its own, with CoLab you’ll have an automatic (and digital) record of when a file was shared, who approved it, and how decisions were made. That means stress-free compliance, without the need to waste time retracing your steps.
