ViaData is excited to announce that WinDOT, The Pipeline Safety Encyclopedia, is now available as a web based application.
The new WinDOT-on-the-Web will look and work in much the same manner as the current hard drive installed version. There are some new features as well.
-No installation necessary.
-Viewable on desktop, laptop, smart phones, tablets using Windows, Android or Apple devices.
-Search now includes phrase searching using quotes and Boolean operator AND.
-No more downloads for updates.
Starting March 1, 2015 users will be sent their login credentials. This will be ongoing for a week or so, please be patient. If you have not received a user name and password by March 15, please contact us at email@example.com.
The Rapid Update System will continue as is.
The current installed system will be supported until May 1, 2015. After that date it will no longer be updated, all updates will only be in WinDOT-on-the-Web.
Your subscription will continue uninterrupted to its current expiration date.
Why are we doing this? The current system is in Windows Help and has been an excellent platform for WinDOT. However with Microsoft discontinuing support for WinHelp, installation and maintenance have become more difficult. We now see a number of situations where Help systems no longer work effectively.
WinDOT-on-the-Web expands your ability to use WinDOT on mobile devices, improves the search function and allows for more content to be delivered easily without requiring a program installation.
On a final note, ViaData and WinDOT are celebrating their 20th Anniversary in 2015.
WinDOT. Get it all in one place.
