Contextualized Feedback

Whether you’re working with team members, suppliers, or customers, CoLab makes it easy to give and receive feedback that everyone can understand.


How it works

Communicate in context

Pin issues and comments directly on any 2D or 3D file, so conversations always happen with full mechanical context. When you leave feedback on a 3D model, it ties directly to the geometry and view state. That way, when another reviewer looks at your feedback, they see what you saw.

Stop giving the same feedback twice

Have you ever sorted through design feedback, only to find the same feedback in three different places? How about feedback that contradicts other feedback? When you leave feedback in CoLab, colleagues can see it instantly, so you’re all on the same page without having to save or re-upload files.

Keep feedback from multiple sources in one place—confidentially and securely

Imagine collecting design feedback from multiple customers and suppliers. You don’t want all these external people to see each other’s commentary. But you do want your internal team to have access to everything. That’s where Portals come in.

Instead of duplicating a file and getting feedback 2 or 3 different times, you can share a single file across multiple Portals. Your internal team can see everything, while your external collaborators just see their own feedback.


You don’t need yet another disconnected software solution. That's why CoLab does two things: 

  • It integrates with your CAD and PLM software to create a connected tech ecosystem.
  • It replaces the 5-10 apps you use to complete a single process workflow with 1-2 apps (CoLab + PLM, for example)

CoLab supports more than 70 file types, including native and neutral CAD and integrates with many PLM/PDM systems. 

Aside from engineering system integrations, CoLab also integrates with Jira and supports security protocols, like SSO, user permissions and more.

Product Redesigns

“The way we were doing our work is the same way that everyone else has traditionally been doing their work. Take screenshots [of a design], put that into a slide deck, and send that slide deck around for comments. Then you’re getting 10 people in a conference room for an hour. That's how we were doing things, but we knew there had to be a better way.”

Better products start with better design conversations.

If you’re ready to see how CoLab can transform the way you work with suppliers, here’s how the process works.

  • Every conversation starts with a discovery call. During this call, a technical expert will understand your team’s challenges with design review today
  • Then, we’ll tailor a demo to address those challenges. This demo includes you, of course, but also some key members from your team who can speak to your challenges in greater detail and vet CoLab as the solution.
  • Finally, we do a workshop with more members of your team. This is the fun part! During this workshop, your team will each have temporary CoLab licenses and participate in a sample design review. You and your team will be guided through key features and use cases right inside the CoLab platform.
