Connect Viewport and Ultimo

Now you can connect Viewport directly with Ultimo. It’s easy with the Ultimo Connector.

Reimagine the way you work. With Viewport Ultimo Connector you get a single view with the latest information and you see how that information is connected. Importantly, it requires no training or changes to work processes, resulting in more time to be productive.

This is what the Viewport Ultimo Connector does for you.

You gain access to Ultimo’s EAM information via Viewport. Imagine, a simple click opens a file inside the Ultimo environment and automatically highlights a tag, saving hours of searching in network shares or document management systems. This allows you to make the quickest and most accurate decisions.

You see all the documentation related to a piece of equipment or a functional location and you don’t even have to leave your maintenance system. What’s more, Viewport’s AI technology gives you the freedom to see it on any device.

The Viewport Ultimo Connector not only helps your maintenance system integrate with other systems and locate relevant as-built documentation quickly and easily, but it also, crucially, makes sure tag numbers that appear on P&IDs, loop diagrams, datasheets, and certificates are linked to the right functional location or equipment in Ultimo.

Viewport will index and link up data without changing anything for the end-users and provides a fully HTML5 web view for technical documentation. It supports all major CAD formats, Office formats, image types, etc.
