Authentise, a leader in data-driven workflow tools, introduces Authentise Threads, an innovative collaboration suite that combines communication and project management tools. The new tool promotes agility for R&D and industrial engineering teams that need to collaborate more fluidly in our distributed world.
Andre Wegner, CEO Authentise, outlines that “despite the noise about the need to be more agile, it’s clear there’s a relative lack of software solutions available today to support R&D, industrial engineering and manufacturing to actually accomplish this. If the definition and simulation of product and process is digital, then there’s no reason we cannot adopt similar processes to those pioneered in software and move at digital development speeds.”
Authentise Threads combines with existing engineering and project management systems, provides cross-functional collaboration in Work Threads, shared information resources, and supports collaborative digital decision making and continuous learning and improvement, among other capabilities.
A leading surgical robotics company was able to get up and running with Authentise Threads in less than 30 minutes and achieve a 150% ROI within two weeks. At the same time, the team saved 150 hours and 20 meetings.
Leading one of 90 organisations whose feedback helped to shape Threads, Amit Visrolia, Chief of Digital Engineering for the National Composite Centre (NCC) said that “Authentise Threads provides us with a place for people to communicate and for data to be connected. With Threads decision processes, and their context, are captured, which is critical to our ability to demonstrate certification. Essentially, with Threads we’ve a people and communication work chain”.
“Authentise has delivered the digital thread to the world’s most agile production settings,” says Andre Wegner. “It’s only natural that we extend this capability to help streamline R&D. Authentise Threads balances the flexibility of real-time collaboration needed to adapt to rapidly evolving challenges, with the structure needed to make engineering workflows a success. With it, Authentise is completing its vision of helping companies digitally track, power and integrate the idea-to-part process.”
