Start Delivering Smart Connected Documents.
PDF has been the prevailing format for over 20 years. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right format.
Standards are published, distributed, stored, and shared as static, standalone PDF documents. But engineers actually use standards like data, regularly copying/pasting, and manually rekeying text, tables, graphs, images, and equations into other applications like MS Word, Excel, PLM, and more, with constant references to internal and external content.
PDF makes these tasks difficult, time-consuming, and even risky since engineers are copying static information that never gets updated. Using outdated or inconsistent data in the supply chain causes mission-critical slowdowns, rework, and compliance issues. PDFS are “zombies”: dead-text documents that can come back to haunt you later.
A 21st century solution is needed. SWISS® is what’s next.
It’s Your Platform.
SWISS® is a neutral content exchange platform, partially funded by the US Department of Defense, and supported by ASTM, ASME, IEEE, and others.
When you make your content available on SWISS®, it becomes part of an interoperable network of smart connected documents; ASTM standards link seamlessly with ASME which link seamlessly with API, which can link seamlessly with internal corporate standards, and so on. Now you’re not just selling documents, you’re selling smart connected documents.
You can sell your own “SWISS-ified” content on the platform, and you can also provide your customers with any other content available on the platform. For example, if your customer needs your standards plus XYZ and PDQ standards, you can sell those to them directly, just by being a member of the SWISS® exchange.
Now that you’re a one-stop source, you can win back and maintain customer relationships that had migrated to resellers. And now that you’ve won back customer relationships, you can start earning more revenue at higher margins.
SWISS empowers publishers. Join the Revolution!
