Arena Solutions Partners with eBOM to Launch Doc Connect for Arena, Streamlining Document Management

Integrated solution helps speed product delivery and improve documentation quality

Foster City, Calif., Jun 6 – Arena, the leading cloud-based product realization platform for complex electronics and medical device companies, today announced its partnership with eBOM to launch Doc Connect for Arena and help streamline document management. Doc Connect for Arena is an easy to deploy and use solution that seamlessly integrates Arena with Microsoft Word® to enable users to quickly create, edit, review, and release Word documents controlled in Arena. 

“As organizations strive to accelerate new product introduction and improve quality, document management can be a bottleneck to innovation,” explains Craig Livingston, CEO of Arena. “Microsoft Word is the most widely used authoring tool in product development and delivery. Our partnership with eBOM creates an elegant connection between Arena and Word that allows product teams to efficiently author and manage critical product and quality documentation while staying in Microsoft Word.”

Doc Connect key benefits include:

  • Ensure product and quality document standardization: With Arena revision-controlled Word templates, teams can quickly author new product and quality documentation in Word, add new files in Arena, and continue the document collaboration process.
  • Increase productivity: Improve team efficiency with easy, fast transitions between Microsoft Word and Arena for document control and collaboration.
  • Improve document management processes: Connect with Arena’s document management capabilities for formal review and release and enable full product team access to the Word documents and their release status.

“This integration with Arena makes it easier to control critical product and quality documentation,” notes Daniel Nihlén, CEO at eBOM. “Doc Connect for Arena, now available in the Microsoft Office Store®, reduces personnel training and connects the user to robust documentation management capabilities.”

Doc Connect for Arena is currently available in the Microsoft Office Store®.
