Trubiquity and Aras to Enable Secure Collaboration by Connecting Cloud Services Into the Enterprise PLM Workflow

 

Partnership to deliver highly secure Cloud-based solutions for collaboration across the extended supply chain

Rochester Hills, Mich. – December 1st, 2010 – Trubiquity, a leading provider of global Managed File Transfer (MFT) and business process integration solutions, today announced a development partnership with Aras, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider. Together, Trubiquity and Aras will provide a series of solutions that connect Trubiquity’s Cloud-based services for highly secure collaboration and MFT into the PLM workflow inside the Aras Innovator enterprise PLM suite.

The initial offering provides seamless access from within the Aras PLM solution to Trubiquity’s market-leading MFT workspace. Users can share, collaborate and manage CAD files, specifications, requirements and other intellectual property in a secure Cloud-based environment from within their company specific PLM workflows. This capability enables the seamless exchange of CAD files and related product data between thousands of global supply chain partners simultaneously.

“As companies look for better ways to enable global operations with suppliers and outsourced partners, they need simple ways to manage sophisticated file transfers and collaboration processes while ensuring absolute security of their intellectual property,” said Stephen Koons, CEO and President of Trubiquity. “With Trubiquity’s services inside the Aras business processes we achieve a very straightforward approach to multi-enterprise integration for highly secure supply chain collaboration.”

“Making the connection between corporate workflows and Cloud-based services completely transparent to end users is very powerful for both the companies using these services and the service providers,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Together with Trubiquity we are connecting people, information and services in what we call a ‘connected Cloud’ approach which has the potential to truly transform the way people work by enabling new capabilities while masking the complexity.”
