DISCUS Software Announces Major Update with DISCUS 2022

DISCUS 2022 is a powerful evolution in manufacturing and quality engineering software solutions. It represents the next generation of tools for reading all the information in a drawing and generating full, compliant, and appropriate documentation. Through artificial intelligence (AI), DISCUS IDA™ is laying the groundwork to make the information extraction process almost completely automated.

FAIRBORN, Ohio, June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Fairborn, Ohio-based, DISCUS Software is proud to announce their latest software update, DISCUS 2022. DISCUS 2022 is a huge update to the software and makes great strides in the speed and accuracy of DISCUS. In DISCUS 2022, we're moving from OCR to Intelligent Drawing Analysis (IDA™). The move to IDA™ represents a powerful evolution in manufacturing and quality engineering software solutions and comes with several important benefits for you. Why the switch? OCR technology has limitations and IDA™ offers endless room for innovative solutions and improvements with its underlying AI technology.

This major upgrade includes enhancements to DISCUS Desktop and includes a major release of a new module called DISCUS IDA™. According to Jake Hart, Director of Sales and Marketing for DISCUS, "This release focuses on the feedback we've received from our customers and responds to a critical and long awaited industry need: Intelligent Drawing Analysis of PDF and Tiff files.

Hart adds, "The goal of this latest release is to push DISCUS to a new level. DISCUS 2022 allows users to automatically balloon entire drawings in just a few clicks. This technology is groundbreaking in the 2D world of PDF drawings and shows our commitment to our customers and their needs: ballooning automation."

DISCUS customer, Mike Parsley from 110 Metalworks, commented, "DISCUS IDA™ is extremely impressive. It provides tremendous productivity improvements in the extraction of information from 2D drawings."

DISCUS 2022 is the result of internal and external feedback from nearly 2000 customers. We strive to enhance the DISCUS experience across all of our DISCUS modules.
