PTC, a global provider of technology platforms and solutions, has announced the availability of Tech Pack Access App, its first role-based app for FlexPLM 11, the latest version of its product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for retail, fashion, footwear, apparel, and consumer products. Tech Pack Access App is enabled by PTC ThingWorx technology.

Role-based apps improve the user experience by getting the right product data and on-point features to more stakeholders—faster, easier, and in context with the work they do every day. The first of several planned app releases, Tech Pack Access provides vendors with access to product specification data, such as bill of materials, measurements, construction details, and imagery. Finished goods manufacturers can quickly view critical product data without delay, enabling better accuracy, collaboration, and efficiency during product sampling and production. Generation capabilities allow users to maintain product integrity and reduce costly errors.

Leveraging the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), Tech Pack information can also be linked to other sources of information. For example, material data in the specs can be connected to availability and pricing of mill vendors.

Quach Hai, senior director, retail product management, PTC said, “With Tech Pack Access, we're seeing the continued evolution and maturation of FlexPLM 11 to allow retailers to rethink the way they develop products and work with suppliers. For example, this app makes it possible for a vendor to easily retrieve the latest construction details for a garment without even having to leave the shop floor. FlexPLM 11 provides product development and sourcing departments access to the same, updated information, allowing them to work in parallel and reduce the overall time to-market.” (GK)
