Secure Product Collaboration for Your Teams



Arena provides one place to manage your product development and quality processes. With Arena Scribe, your team can discuss the product during the in-between spaces of formal processes. Team members can begin Scribe collaboration discussions on the product record and invite others to participate. Through a chat interface, dispersed teams can discuss concerns and then document decisions. Email and dashboard alerts keep hot topics visible. And partners can participate in comments that are made public, leveraging the entire team to solve problems and create better products, faster.

Take Back the Day

Fewer calls. Less email. More happiness. Your team will be more connected and productive with product discussions as they happen—all in an easy-to-follow flow. That visibility includes seeing who is and isn’t following the discussion. Recapture time spent copying and pasting email threads and determining your team’s meeting availability just to have a quick discussion.

Go to the Same Place

With your product and quality records in Arena, you manage your formal change processes, new product projects, quality actions, and more. Why wouldn’t you want the informal, yet critical, discussions on products to happen there, too? Team members can create new Scribe conversations on almost any Arena record—Items, Changes, Requests, Supplier Items, Projects, Quality, Files—and invite other team members to participate in the discussion. No need to constantly reference an assembly or corrective action in email. Your team will always know the latest status of the product being discussed. They can review entire discussions and conclusions in one place.

Expand the Discussion

Easily invite your design and manufacturing partners into your conversations—without worrying about time zones, contact information, or privileges. When you make comments public, Scribe accesses the existing permission settings in Arena. If the supplier has permission access to a given record, then the supplier can view all public comments in the Scribe discussion around that product.

Gain Continuity

Provides an informal team discussion and decision trail, connected to your product design record. Now you can ramp new team members faster for minimal loss in productivity and continuity. New members invited to Scribe conversations see the entire discussion history and can jump right into the work.
