Aras and Trubiquity Announce TRUaras Cloud-based Secure File Exchange Service Embedded in Aras PLM Platform

TRUaras Enables Highly Secure Managed File Transfer for Global Supply Chains

Andover, MASS. and Munich, Germany – September 16, 2013 – Aras®, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, today announced the availability of TRUaras, a Cloud service embedded in the Aras Innovator PLM platform for managed file transfers (MFT). With TRUaras users can securely share and exchange large CAD files, technical data packages, manufacturing data, inspection and test results and other intellectual property with full tracking and traceability.

Included at no charge in every Aras download, TRUaras is an integrated service with no file size limitation for companies that run Aras. Developed for global enterprises seeking to simplify secure collaboration with customers, suppliers, outsourced manufacturing and contract manufacturing partners, TRUaras brings compliance-grade file exchange directly into the PLM workflow.

“TRUaras provides a seamless way for global supply chain partners with thousands of simultaneous users to manage large, complex file transfers such as CAD assemblies while ensuring the highest levels of security for intellectual property,” said Stephen Koons, CEO and President of Trubiquity. “With TRUaras users can collaborate across the extended enterprise with complete confidence from within the Aras PLM environment.”

TRUaras uses Aras’s connected cloud capabilities to embed Trubiquity’s managed file transfer service directly inside Aras Innovator providing an easy and secure means to transfer files and conduct regular data transactions while adding encryption, tracking and traceability. TRUaras can be extended with additional subscription-based services including private corporate communities, direct integration into other PLM systems, and connectivity with the full range of Trubiquity’s online services.

Designed to replace disconnected, multi-step procedures like FTP and methods that lack security such as email and consumer file sharing sites, TRUaras is ideal for companies that need to securely share large sets of files such as CATIA, Creo and NX assemblies with suppliers, or that frequently transmit product designs such as PDX files to contract manufacturers.

“TRUaras puts advanced file exchange capabilities right in the heart of the product development process, giving companies in automotive, aerospace, high tech and other industries with global supply chains the collaborative environment they want with the security, tracking and compliance they require,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras.
