Sovelia Sync

Sovelia Sync has been launched as part of the Sovelia PLM and Sovelia Engineering solution. The primary function of Sovelia Sync as the name suggests is to synchronise files between a windows desktop and the Sovelia server. Accessed from a tray icon in the bottom right hand corner of the desktop or by right clicking on a file in the explorer window.

Use the native program on the windows machine to make changes to the files then on "save" Sovelia Sync will automatically update the file on the server allowing everyone to have access to the latest version.

Want to make sure you have the latest file on your computer?
Subscribe to a file and Sovelia Sync will automatically download the latest version from Sovelia server when it is available.

Perform actions on Sovelia using the file explorer on your device.


The way customers access Sovelia is changing and as people become more mobile we need to make sure the right number of licenses are consumed and not over consumed. We have adjusted the license manager tools to better handle users accessing the system from different platforms. There will be a separate document available to explain the licensing model moving forward.

HTML5 Administration gets easier

With each new release of Sovelia PLM and Sovelia Engineering we increase the amount of HTML functionality available to users. Managing the customisation of the client HTML environment and the method the Symetri Service team upgrade functionality to each new version gets easier from now.  We have introduced a configuration tool to make the upgrade and configuration of the client HTML environment easier. This will result in more flexibility, a standard approach to customisation and a faster, trouble-free upgrade for customers.
