Making the right decision on the default Agile PLM interface with hundreds of fields can be daunting. Users go through new unfamiliar processes or create documents with complex attributes without any guidance on the rules. This unfamiliarity makes it difficult for them to differentiate between critically important or informational data. So, they have to rely on time consuming and rigorous training. Even with training, new functionality and rapid updates to data fields can rattle experienced users. Xavor’s Assist+ is a unique navigation solution to combat PLM assistance challenges.
Xavor’s Assist+ guides users at the field level during object creation and updates for a flawless user experience. It provides mouse-over hover (help) text for Agile objects, which include all types of changes for content messages for important objects and edits.
