iX Scout is a cloud service that facilitates communication and processes in order processing: Like a digital assistant, iX Scout clearly displays all design data and manufacturing information for an order online in the browser. The special feature: Printed documents become superfluous, communication and information exchange between departments much easier.
iX Scout not only structures and accelerates the exchange of information, but also provides each employee with exactly the information he needs for his work step at any time. Orders can thus be processed more efficiently and securely.
In the 3D view, users can not only view the job model, but also interactively explore individual objects. With intuitive navigation and functions such as isolate and hide, they can quickly find their way around. Elements can be selected by fingertip or click or by scanning a QR code. The properties of the element and the associated chat history are displayed in corresponding sidebars.
A selection of lists makes all order information available in various constellations. Component information such as dimensions, edge information or details of purchased parts contained in the order can thus be viewed quickly and conveniently. All list items are related to the 3D viewer and have a quick filter. Parts can be checked off, with a new list available for each user to check off.
All documents and comments that belong to an order are clearly displayed in the dialog and can be displayed by order, component or article.
With the Custom views, every user can compile exactly the content he needs for his daily work. A selection of the already described iX Scout components is arranged according to a suggested layout and saved internally. A created view can therefore be used by all users.
Everywhere in the user interface it is possible to scan the QR code of a component. Immediately, the associated design and manufacturing details are displayed and the part is color-coded in the 3D viewer. For scanning, users can use their device camera or a handheld scanner.
In the dialog (Chat), each participant can ask their questions exactly where they arise: the selected object in the 3D view - be it an article, a component or a fitting - is automatically assigned to the message so that other participants can navigate from the chat overview directly to the viewer to identify the object concerned. Not only can information be transmitted as text with the chat, attachments such as images and documents can also be easily attached.
