Authentise, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the release of new integrations for Authentise Threads, the company’s workflow management software that allows users to share, discuss and manage engineering projects. The integrations with Plyable and the Google Docs Suite aim to streamline engineering processes, enhance collaboration, and reduce the time from idea to manufactured part.

The integration with Plyable, an online platform for designing, quoting, and sourcing composite molds, is anticipated to enable greater efficiency in the mold development process. Engineers can now access Plyable’s features directly within Threads, allowing them to receive a composite mold design, pricing and timelines while collaborating with their colleagues on Threads. They can then complete the order for molds online within seconds.

This integration streamlines the entire design process by enabling engineers to get the information they need when they need it, ending separate mold development workflows entirely. This reduces lead times and improves collaboration between design and manufacturing teams.

“We are thrilled to partner with Authentise and integrate Plyable with Threads,” stated Martin X, CEO of Plyable. “This integration greatly benefits designers and engineers by making the designing and sourcing of composite molds as an intrinsic part of their product development process, not a time-consuming separate step. By combining Plyable’s expertise in mold development with Authentise’s powerful collaboration platform, we are empowering engineers to work more efficiently and bring their ideas to life faster.”

Google Docs Suite

The integration with the Google Docs Suite brings additional real-time collaboration to engineering teams. User’s comments in Google’s Spreadsheets, Docs, and Presentations are now immediately visible within Authentise, like annotations on 3D models, which Authentise announced in April. By leveraging the familiar Google Docs interface, engineers can work together more easily regardless of location or device, while the integration with Threads makes it easier to tie in colleagues and build new product ideas collaboratively.

“We are excited to introduce these new integrations for Authentise Threads,” said Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “By connecting Threads with Plyable and the Google Docs Suite, we are providing engineers with a unified platform that streamlines their workflows and enhances collaboration. These integrations are a significant step forward in our mission to create a seamless digital thread from idea to manufactured part and are just the first in a slew of planned integrations.”

The integration of Plyable and Google Docs Suite with Authentise Threads offers several benefits noted by Authentise:

  • More streamlined mold development: Engineers can design composite molds, request quotes, and manage sourcing directly within Threads
  • Real-time editing, commenting, and version control
  • A more comprehensive digital thread, connecting various stages of the product lifecycle and enabling data-driven decision-making

Authentise Threads with Plyable and Google Docs Suite integrations is now available to all Authentise customers.
