Benefits of using Viewport for Ultimo

Introduction to Viewport for Ultimo

What if you could view all documentation related to a piece of equipment or a functional location, without having to search for it in various locations, and without leaving your maintenance system?

This is now a reality with Viewport for Ultimo.
This integration will help maintenance staff locate relevant as-built documentation quickly and easily. Tag numbers that appear on P&IDs, loop diagrams, data sheets, certificates, etc. are linked to the right functional location or equipment in Ultimo. A simple click will open the file inside the Ultimo environment and highlight the tag automatically, saving possibly hours of searching in various network shares or document management systems.

Viewport will index and link up data without changing anything for the end users, providing a fully HTML5 web view for technical documentation. All major CAD formats, Office formats, image types, etc. are supported.

"”The way that Viewport automatically determines how our data is connected is very useful! In the past, we had to know the underlying connections and manually generate and maintain links.”"

- Darrell Bailey

Systems Analyst Sr

"Users can get to the information quickly and easily. They don’t need to know the original source. Viewport also shows how the information is connected, all very important for making quick, informed and accurate decisions."

Dave Frazer
