Our community projects

We give away information like candy

Our committment to fostering strong community relationships differentiates us from our competitors. We donate 10% of our time to community educational efforts. This is a list of projects that we have founded, created, and organized for the technical communications and Arbortext communities:

Single-Sourcing blog

The Single Sourcing blog is focused on information about Arbortext, the community, and the best practices for successful implementation of dynamic information delivery projects.

The TC Dojo is a series of webinars where the topics are chosen by the community and driven by community needs. In the TC Dojo-Arbortext Edition, we cover topics of interest to Arbortext users.

In these exclusive, members only, confidential learning sessions, participants talk about real time issues and share ideas for possible solutions. There are three Masterminds available: TechComm General, Arbortext, Windchill. Apply to join.

Other Resources

Lots of other resources are available, too.

Arbortext has always had a very active community. Users and developers support each other, answer each other's questions, and present at conferences. We talk about everything: We talk about Arbortext, but we talk about all the related technologies that come into play as well. The community is more than just Arbortext customers. One of the strengths of the community -- and of the Arbortext product line -- is that PTC's Engineering team also partcipates in the community. You'll see them answering questions at all times of the day and night, right alongside us.
