Fishbowl Solutions, a PTC Network Alliance member, is proud to announce their new PTC software resell partnership. Through this partnership, Fishbowl is now an authorized reseller of PTC Vuforia, which is the industry’s most advanced and widely adopted AR technology platform. Fishbowl will market, sell, service, and support PTC Vuforia for customers in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

PTC Vuforia enables customers to visualize, instruct, guide, and improve interactions with physical things. The Vuforia product portfolio includes solutions that provide customers the ability to develop cross-platform AR applications that incorporate CAD (computer-aided design) and IoT (Internet of Things) data, view them on mobile devices as well as smartglasses like Microsoft Hololens, and share PTC Creo 3D CAD content through AR with third parties. Fishbowl Solutions’ PTC partnership enables them to resell the following Vuforia components:

  • Vuforia Studio (formerly ThingWorx Studio) – enables users to reuse 3D CAD content, incorporate step-by-step instructions and IoT (Internet of Things) data, and scale AR authoring and publishing in industrial enterprises
  • Vuforia Chalk™ – enables technicians to get remote assistance from experts

“Fishbowl already has a world class Windchill implementation team and we have Fishbowl apps to automate and integrate PTC solutions to deliver valuable return on investment for our customers. This new partnership is exciting because we will have the opportunity to resell and build solutions around the Vuforia augmented reality platform too,” said Tim Gruidl, president of Fishbowl Solutions. “Fishbowl’s overall understanding of product data management and experience integrating PTC Windchill with 3rd-party systems means that we have the expertise to do the same for your AR applications. Data from Windchill, as well as systems such as Oracle Service and Sales Cloud, can be surfaced to your AR application to create a 360 degree view of your product.”

“We’re pleased to welcome Fishbowl Solutions to the PTC Partner Network,” said Kerry Grimes, Divisional Vice President, PTC Partner Network. Our carefully-selected network of partners allows us to leverage market expertise and deliver the product and service quality synonymous with the PTC brand.”
