No Need to Replace Existing Systems

Viewport Connect and Search

Viewport can complement your existing document management system (DMS), maintenance management system (MMS) or other information systems, connecting the content and providing a single search box for all the data, regardless of the data quality.

Viewport provides an intelligent and innovative solution to the challenge that Plant Operations Managers encounter all too often: personnel lost in a multitude of software tools and applications, trying to locate the right information, sometimes frustrated to the point that they place more trust in their ‘secret’ copies on their local hard drives.

Most information systems in the process industry are too complex for casual searching and viewing of operational information, lacking integration with other sources. This lack of integration means that content cannot be checked for consistency against other sources automatically, giving a gradual decline in data quality over time.

With Viewport this consistency check happens automatically and is visualized in the source data in an easy manner, empowering end users to detect omissions or mistakes as early as possible. This eliminates the need for large data cleansing exercises, turning it into an ongoing, light weight activity instead.

Add Value to Your Existing Applications

Viewport automatically extracts information from multiple sources, regardless of location or format.

By utilising machine intelligence including pattern, shape and character recognition, even scanned documents and drawings can be indexed.

Viewport also searches documents for references to other documents and data, and visualizes these references in a unique, fully integrated manner. Viewport’s Vertex Engine ‘intelligence’ has been designed to find tag and document numbers even if they are not spelt or numbered correctly.

Viewport can extract data from a wide variety of source files (such as Microsoft® Office® files, AutoCAD® DWG, MicroStation® DGN, Adobe® PDF, 100+ image formats) and a variety of source systems (ERP systems, maintenance management systems, document management systems, etc.).
