PTC launches Kinex industrial IoT applications
April 20, 2017
Massachusetts based industrial IoT and AR platform provider PTC has launched a family of industrial IoT applications built on the company's ThingWorx platform. The Kinex product family is a new brand that will consist of industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications designed to simplify companies' digital transformation and accelerate time to value.
The first application branded under the Kinex product family is the Kinex Navigate application.
Kinex Navigate, which has more than 125,000 seats sold to date, is designed to allow users across a company to use product data sourced from multiple systems in a role-based interface. Employed with PTC's Windchill system for connected PLM, the Kinex Navigate app is designed to help break down silos in the product lifecycle with universal data access.
PTC will be releasing additional Kinex applications built on PTC's ThingWorx IoT platform.
David Bartlett, North America Head at engineering and IT consultancy KPIT, said "Data from medical device manufacturers resides in multiple business systems. By leveraging the ThingWorx Industrial IoT platform and Kinex Navigate solution, KPIT is able to aggregate data from various business systems and apply our business process and medical device expertise to bring useful role-based apps to the market.”
“Kinex role-based applications will enable customers to rapidly adopt and realise value from their digital transformation initiatives,” said Peter Vescuso, chief customer journey officer, PTC. “Kinex Navigate is seeing increased adoption in the market as companies look to leverage the Industrial IoT to improve their competitive advantage and increase the value delivered to their customers. As we work with hundreds of our global manufacturing customers worldwide, we understand the challenges and technology requirements that Industrial IoT presents. We will deliver more new and innovative Kinex applications that support and enable Industrial IoT initiatives.”
