Document edition is still one of the main collaborative activities in a PLM system. We are still uploading files, lots of spreadsheets, word-based specifications or other documents. Most PLM are known to be painful when you need to have some sort of collaboration over documentations. Everyone just put documents into Microsoft Teams ! Sometimes you get an office integration with your PLM but you have all sorts of files, and documents will become more and more cloud based. In order to make the process of document edition simpler, we built a small utility (compatible with Windows, Mac, and linux) which automates all the check-in/check-out tasks for you. The goal is to make you feel you are editing documents locally and they magically sync with your PLM system like dropbox.
In this video we demonstrate how to easily edit a document using our g-file-sync utility which allows you to efficiently work with any type of file without the complicated check-in/check-out process.
