Digabit offers Documoto, a software as a service that allows customers to consolidate all of their technical documentation into a modern, high-performance database and present it via a secure, easy-to-use web application. The Documoto solution enables cutsomers to organize, view, maintain and search large quantities of documentation including manuals, electronic parts catalog and multi-media libraries.
With Documoto, related documents can be dynamically linked, allowing customers to graphically navigate large quantities of documentation in a fast and efficient manner. For equipment manufacturers and maintenance companies, Documoto provides the ability to navigate through an entire assembly down to a single bolt, in order to quickly obtain the correct part number.
The solution is also designed to drive after market parts sales. The electronic shopping cart system encourages customers to purchase related parts through “part kits” and “suggestive part ordering” capabilities. Finding and ordering parts is streamlined and intuitive, and therefore much easier to use for OEM customers. Maintenance manuals, service bulletins, engineering change notices, safety alerts, photographs, video, and 3D renderings can all be linked to give customers additional information before ordering.
Technical documentation is part of the “information explosion” of this era. Companies understand that they will eventually drown in this data unless it is moved into web-accessible databases. Accordingly, Documoto represents an obvious application of database/web technology to a common business problem.
