Maintenance

Canvas Envision for service and maintenance teams

maintaining flawless communication

Cut delays, reduce errors, and optimize essential maintenance processes by communicating with visual precision. Create, share, and collaborate using digital service, repair, and maintenance manuals that give your audience the ability to interact with real 3D CAD models.

communication that helps you improve reliability and uptime

Maintenance teams across the ecosystem depend on precision information to get the job done efficiently.  Whether they’re customer employees, part of a dealer network, third-party contractors, or part of your own team, the need for absolute clarity in the documentation that guides their work is paramount.

“We’ve cut the time we spend on documentation by 25% – 50%, freeing our engineers to focus on what’s most important.”

Text-heavy, printed manuals can be time-consuming and off-putting, particularly if your audience spans a range of language skills, education, and expertise. What everyone involved in service, maintenance, and repair requires is a way to make sophisticated data and ideas easy for the entire audience to understand.

Visual communication is more effective but flat, static drawings or screenshots of CAD models just don’t show everything you need to see.

Canvas Envision takes visual communication of complex information to the next level by letting people interact with 3D models on any device. With a single click, they can pop 3D models out of the document and interact with them to view them from any angle, view metadata, and even isolate or hide individual components. That’s communication that leaves nothing to chance.
