Every design engineering team right now is navigating a world where product development is more complex, collaborative, and multidisciplinary than ever before. Products are increasingly more technically sophisticated, but the tools and processes for collaborating on design have not kept pace with the evolution of product development. Today’s teams are faced with the growing challenge of trying to modernize their collaborative methods so that product decisions are made with the best information available, while taking into account a wide range of stakeholders and expertise. Yet, for the teams who tackle this challenge head-on, there’s also an enormous opportunity to create more innovative products—faster and more economically.
CoLab Software was founded in 2017 to help teams accelerate the pace of engineering innovation by creating better tools for collaborating on mechanical design. CoLab’s web-based platform makes it easy to securely share and review CAD with anyone, while dramatically reducing the manual administrative work needed to do so. Feedback happens right on the design file so there’s always full mechanical context, and it’s all tracked for you—automatically creating a history of critical design conversations that aren’t captured by CAD or PLM systems. Instead of the clutter and chaos of generic tools like emails, PDFs, and slideshows, CoLab brings design review and collaboration processes together into a central hub.
As part of our Technology Leadership profile series, we spoke to Adam Keating, co-founder and CEO of Co-Lab Software.
