The portal does not favor specific manufacturers and is open to all. Neutrality and independence have the highest priority.
The most important aim is to gain credence for end users and content provider. The collected information should remain freely available for everyone. Hilscher operates as a data custodian.
For end users downloading of data remains permanently free of charge. Also after 2017.
There will be no lead generation. As a content provider, you will gain insight into anonymized, statistical data regarding your products. You can understand which of your products is most frequently requested.
The process of data acquisition for the overall system is automated by the web crawler component, which is capable of automatically evaluating device description files and feeding the resulting information into the database. Alternatively, the content provider uploads information to the Device Information Portal on his own.
End users require manuals, data sheets and brief instructions very often. For complex products even videos or whitepapers may be relevant. All this information can be provided by the Portal.
The Device Information Portal displays the version and upload date of the device description files. There are regular queries on the content provider’s websites and Hilscher already plans a real-time update.
