CAD, IoT, Augmented Reality, and More

Founded in 1985, PTC Inc. is a global software company that aids businesses in the design, manufacture, operation, and service of products. With a diverse portfolio that spans Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality (AR), computer-aided design (CAD), and even a program for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). PTC is headquartered in Boston and has grown to serve a myriad of industries.

Evolution from CAD Pioneer to Digital Solutions Leader

PTC’s journey began as a trailblazer in 3D CAD software. In the late 1980s and 1990s, the company launched Pro/ENGINEER, the industry's first rule-based constraint (parametric) CAD software. This software revolutionized product design by allowing engineers to create 3D digital prototypes of their products, enhancing the overall design process. Over the years, PTC expanded its software suite to include solutions that cover the entire product lifecycle, from conception and design to service and retirement.

Solutions for the Modern Industrial Landscape

At the heart of PTC's offerings is its comprehensive suite of software tools tailored to meet the demands of today's industries. Their CAD solutions, led by the flagship product Creo, enable product designers and engineers to visualize, analyze, and verify complex product designs. Through advanced simulation tools and a user-friendly interface, Creo has become the preferred choice for many enterprises.

Moreover, with the Vuforia AR platform, PTC provides tools for developers to create immersive augmented reality applications. These AR applications can be used in a variety of sectors, from education and marketing to manufacturing and service, making the process of information consumption more interactive and intuitive. When looking at companies supplying similar services, one finds names such as Oracle, SAP, IBM, and many more.

Internet of Things

PTC saw the increasing value of the Internet of Things and the potential of augmented reality in industrial settings. By strategically acquiring companies and expanding their product suite, PTC positioned itself at the forefront of the IoT and AR revolutions. Their ThingWorx platform, for instance, offers a comprehensive IoT solution, enabling businesses to create and run applications for connected products.
