ThingWorx Apps

100% helpful (1/1)

Pre-built apps for manufacturing operations that rapidly deliver value.




Think Big, Start Small, Scale Fast


Getting started on an industrial IoT project can be daunting, especially deciding where and how to begin. After collecting the experiences gained by working with over 1500 companies on IIoT applications, PTC has made the process to get up and running easier. By grouping IIoT capabilities together in functionally oriented programs, PTC built out-of-the-box applications that rapidly deploy and scale across new or existing system infrastructure. Instead of starting from scratch, you can use ThingWorx ready-to-configure apps to quickly lay the foundation for industrial transformation and implement IIoT solutions in as little as 90 days. ThingWorx Apps offer a comprehensive, basic IIoT scheme to connect to your equipment, collect real-time data, create notification work flows, deliver role based dashboards, and more. Need something more tailored to your operation? No problem. You can iteratively extend and customize ThingWorx Apps into additional use cases for continuous innovation.
