The XDocs Manufacturing Suite unites all systems deployed by manufacturing companies to create a seamless content solution.

Create, Manage and Deliver all your technical documentation including Maintenance Manuals, Illustrated Parts Catalogues, Maintenance Schedules and more.

Manufacturers are using a number of different systems; ERP, PLM, CAD etc. and more often than not they do not talk to one another. Also, the information contained within these systems is needed by Technical Publications for the creation of documentation but is hard to access. Customer specific machinery requires custom documentation based on custom BOMs (Bills of Materials). All of this information is assembled by hand/humans, which makes it difficult and time consuming to generate customer specific information.

These are just some of the reasons it is time to look for a better solution.

The XDocs Manufacturing Suite is a tightly integrated parts and service information solution that allows manufacturers to better address customer needs. A solution that links together your existing systems and provides instant access to up to date documentation and increases the sales of spare parts and consumables through a web-based interactive service delivery portal.

The XDocs Manufacturing Suite unites all systems deployed by manufacturing companies to create a seamless content solution. 

Use XDocs Connectors to bring information stored in ERP and PLM systems into the athouring interface, import Bills of Materials, CAD drawings and other content/data wherever it is stored. Build IPCs (Illustrated Parts Catalogs), Operating Manuals, Maintenance Schedules and IETMs (Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals), hot-spot diagrams and much more. Review everything in a browser based application and easily manage the translation process. Link back to parts-ordering and fulfillment systems then publish to any device or platform, or build customer portals.
