Move Beyond PDF to Smart Connected Documents

SWISS TRANSFORMS STATIC ENGINEERING DOCUMENTS INTO INTELLIGENT, INTEROPERABLE DATA

To accelerate project cycles, reduce cost, and minimize risk throughout the enterprise and supply chain.

A Paradigm Shift to Data-Centricity

Companies that shift from shuffling PDF and print documents to a new digital-data paradigm reap significant benefits in nearly every step of project lifecycles.

icons-01

interoperable

Automatically connect silos of internal and external information, across functions, disciplines, and partners.
WHY: reduce search time, pinpoint answers to questions, and uncover “what you don’t know”.

icons-02

Object-Centric

Easily extract and track text, tables, graphs, images, and equations into other applications.
WHY: eliminate wasteful copy/paste/rekey, and reuse common data elements to reduce start-up times and finish projects faster.

icons-03

change-aware

Changes at the source are automatically conveyed downstream so your entire enterprise and supply chain are using the same information.
WHY: reduce rework and project delays while enabling more frequent iterations on-the-fly.

icons-04

API-Ready

The powerful SWISS API automatically delivers critical data into PLM, EPC, and other systems.
WHY: get the exact information you need, right when and where you need it.

icons-06

intelligent automation

Automatically detects differences between versions and shows the impact of changes.
WHY: reduce manual steps and improve speed and accuracy of change management.

swiss solutions

Every piece of data is linked back to the authoritative source, so users always know what’s current and what’s not.

Drag and drop text, tables, equations and more from standards into your own documents and applications.

Artificial intelligence helps you find what you need, without wading through hundreds of pages.

Export tables to Excel in a single click.

One-click redline comparisons between any two documents to see exactly what’s changed.

Navigate seamlessly from your own internal content to ASTM to ASME to API to IEEE and more.

Share with your enterprise and supply chain to maximize consistency and collaboration.

Your internal docs are automatically linked to references in external docs without human tagging and indexing.

STATIC DOCUMENTS HAVE A HIGH COST

THE TRUE COST OF PRINT AND PDF.

Much of your critical engineering content (like internal information, customer specs, and external industry standards) is in dead-text print and PDF, which seems cheap and easy at first glance. But these formats create exponential problems that bite right into your bottom line. SWISS eliminates these problems.

SWISS REDUCES COSTS BY 65%.

SWISS does this by reducing time to find the right information, eliminating late-stage changes and rework, speeding up document creation, enabling re-use of common data elements, and reducing risk by ensuring that everyone uses the right information all the time.

  • Cost of using old data
  • Rework and errors
  • Change management
  • Time and risk from copy/paste, rekey
  • Navigation across documents and silos
  • Initial content cost

“swiss-ify” your company’s internal content

Imagine clicking back and forth from your internal specs to ASTM, ASME, API, DoD, work instructions, PLM, and back. When you convert your own content (in any format) to SWISS®, you’ll have a single source of comprehensive, interoperable engineering data. The results: greater productivity, shorter time to market, and the lowest possible cost of using industry standards.

60%
of engineers use internal content “closely” with external industry standards.
79%
of engineers don’t need to read the entire standard. They need answers to specific questions.
68%
of users have problems extracting data from standards and integrating it with other applications.
11%
of users say that "finding the documents" is the hardest part of using standards.

OUR PARTNERS

What they’re saying about SWISS®

  • “SWISS brings industry standards into the 21st century.”

    Electronics Engineer
  • “We are particularly excited by SWISS… [it] is absolutely crucial in that it enables the mirroring of how engineers work on large projects.”

    Outsell, May 2016
  • “We spend hours trying to extract content from standards. SWISS does it in minutes.”

    Medical device manufacturer
  • “Doing ‘consistency checks’ at the end of a project almost always results in having to do rework. SWISS eliminates that rework.”

    EPC Engineering Firm
  • “Purchasing the base documents is only a fraction of the actual cost of using standards.”
