PARTS-PUBLISHER software for spare parts catalogs and service information systems



Since 2000, Docware GmbH has developed and established PARTS-PUBLISHER, an innovative software for digital spare parts catalogs and service information systems. The software allows customers to create and publish their own catalogs, and to identify and sell spare parts quickly and easily. More than 400 customers from the mechanical and plant engineering industry are successfully using PARTS-PUBLISHER.

Manufacturers and operators of machines, plants and equipment are able to import all their service-relevant information such as BOMs, documentation or 2D or 3D graphics into PARTS-PUBLISHER - regardless of which inventory system is used. In this way, they create a data pool that can be edited at any time and reused as often as required. The result is a service information system with a 360° service view of the machines and systems. All information is structured, linked and digitally processed. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, service technicians, customers or distributors can now quickly and easily access all maintenance-relevant information and directly place spare parts orders. Incorrect orders, downtimes and tedious spare parts searches are thus a thing of the past.

Among the extensive features of the PARTS-PUBLISHER software, the following key features stand out in particular:

  • Authoring environment with extensive configuration and customization options
  • Highest quality assurance through preview of the catalog and modification options before publication (WYSIWYG editor)
  • Flexible integration and bidirectional linking of documentation, 3D & 2D graphics, animations, as well as schematics, hydraulic and pneumatic plans including the complete logic
  • Single-source publishing: all data for all catalog media (online, offline, paper) from one source, regular updates with minimal effort
  • Extensive visualization and search tools for easy identification of the required parts
