PTC makes its Windchill+TM product lifecycle management (PLM) software. Windchill+ is a new generation of the company’s Windchill software, delivered via a modern software-as- a-service (SaaS) architecture. Windchill+ facilitates collaboration around product data and enables product development organizations to bring products to market faster and to accelerate PLM deployment, the company reports.

“Windchill+ unleashes an exciting new future for our Windchill product line, delivering the full digital transformation power of PLM while simplifying deployment, usage, and upgrades through the use of a modern SaaS architecture,” says Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC.

Windchill+ combines the benefits of a modern SaaS architecture with PLM speed, agility and openness, according to PTC. Customers can reduce or eliminate their on-premises legacy applications and solutions. Customers can move from PLM implementation to full usage with speed and simplicity and can easily accelerate PLM adoption across the organization. Windchill+ also enables faster, easier and more secure collaboration with external supply chain partners. PTC will leverage the SaaS architecture of Windchill+ to deliver new versions and PLM capabilities to customers over time.
