The MACO Technical Online Catalogue forms a part of the MACO Extranet Customer Portal, a reserved area where you can discover, browse and research. TOM makes it possible to click on a component in an exploded drawing to start a search for key words, to use the menu to jump from one section to another, or even download CAD drawings and product data sheets. Authorised customers can order directly from TOM via the link with the order platform. Access to technical drawings and data sheets is available to all users after registration.
The award-winning offline app for Windows 8.1 makes the information in the Technical Online Catalogue available even when you are far away from UMTS mobile networks and WLAN.
With a view to keeping data quantities to a minimum during synchronisation, the app shows the most important information and functions of the Technical Online Catalogue in offline mode. If an Internet connection is available, the existing data can be updated to allow the user to continue working offline with the current data inventory. With the intuitive touch operation, the user navigates quickly and easily through the required data, on suitable devices. The app can of course be operated using the mouse instead of the touch display. A special function is reserved exclusively for the offline app: the search via barcode scanning function. The camera of a mobile device can be used to scan in the article barcode on the packaging. The search function then provides direct access to the catalogue page with the particular product.
