PTC Arbortext Software Product Suite

We are the leading independent source of information about Arbortext software. We have no financial relationship with the product or PTC. Our deep understanding of the product suite–it's functionality, strengths, and weaknesses–comes from decades of experience as customers and former partners. We are the only producers of books, videos, and programs to support the Arbortext community that were not written, commissioned, or otherwise created through a compensation agreement with PTC.


When you combine our Arbortext knowledge, our passion for empowering others, and our experience with nearly every other competitive XML publishing product out there, you find that our knowledge, services, and insight into DITA and XML authoring and publishing tools and practices is unmatched in the industry.

What is Arbortext?

Arbortext Software is an End-To-End, Single-Vendor, Dynamic Product Information Delivery System that everyone can use

Arbortext is a full suite of products, developed in concert to work together seamlessly, that address every phase of the information authoring and delivery process:

  • Authoring tools
  • Delivery and publishing tools
  • Illustration tools
  • Content and process management

Arbortext automates the authoring and publishing processes for the delivery of high quality, tailored product information in the form of operator manuals, service documentation, and eLearning courseware.  Arbortext fits any business size:

  • Enterprise teams
  • Small teams
  • Individuals

What does Arbortext cost?

Arbortext pricing is competitive with leading technical documentation products for DITA and XML authoring tools.

Arbortext can be deployed as a complete integrated product information delivery system or as discrete solutions in conjunction with existing information management technologies. The components of this system are built and tested together, to ensure out-of-the-box deployment with low risk and easy upgrades with a low total cost of ownership.

Arbortext products are available as subscription licenses on a “node-locked” (fixed to a particular machine’s CPU) or concurrent (“floating”) basis.

Pricing varies by product but, in the right configuration, Arbortext is highly competitive with other technical communications products.

How do I know I've picked the right products?

If you have questions about what a reseller has quoted you form a products or services perspective, book an Independent Verification service appointment and we will confirm your needs against the quote that an Arbortext sales professional has provided to you.

We will let you know if we feel the quote matches the need or whether there is a product configuration that better fits your situation.

Because we are not part of the product sale, we can provide an independent review of your situation that you can be confident in. Our Independent Verification service appointments are prix fixe and you can bring as many team members as you want. The time is yours. With us, there are no surprises.
