By Jen Groisman

We are excited to announce a new strategic partnership with TeamViewer. TeamViewer a leading global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalization solutions.

TeamViewer’s software has been installed on more than 2.5 billion devices around the world since the company was founded in 2005.

Teamcenter is partnering with TeamViewer to bring the power of enterprise AR platform Frontline to our customers.

How will it benefit you?

This collaboration allows you to enhance your product development processes with immersive experiences. You can create interactive, 3D content connected to the digital twin of a product.

We are very excited to collaborate with Siemens in the PLM space and to help their customers to increase their productivity, efficiency, and process quality. This strategic partnership underlines once more our leading position in cutting-edge technologies such as AR and MR and our relevance in the global tech ecosystem, which is a major driver for our growing enterprise business.

The 3D models of products can be easily modified, enabling more teams across the product lifecycle to collaborate and thus driving more informed product decisions and innovation.

Augmented reality for PLM

Providing our customers with rich, immersive experiences is key to broadening the adoption of the executable digital twin. Our collaboration with TeamViewer brings another way for our community of designers, engineers and managers to engage with their product data using the latest interactive Mixed Reality technology.

How can you use it?

The Spatial module within TeamViewer’s enterprise AR platform Frontline enables employees wearing Mixed Reality smart glasses, such as the Microsoft HoloLens, to execute tasks in a more intuitive, interactive way.

It provides the users with digital information, three-dimensional elements and multimedia content in an Augmented or Mixed Reality environment.

Virtual information or holograms are placed on top of objects in the real world to enrich each employee’s reality for visual process guidance.

Is it user-friendly?

Thanks to the built-in no code editor, process owners can easily manage and update the underlying workflows without using IT resources. For example, you can create digital twins from CAD model data.

Leverage your existing CAD and PLM with an added TeamViewer Frontline Spatial module for increased productivity, efficiency, and process quality throughout the product development process and in aftermarket service and maintenance.

It enables AR content creation based on PLM information without programming knowledge.

TeamViewer is a leading global technology company. It provides a connectivity platform to remotely access, control, manage, monitor, and repair devices of any kind – from laptops and mobile phones to industrial machines and robots.

The solution is expected to be available later this year. Take a look at the press release to learn more.
