Every two weeks and in line with the publication dates of new standards, we automatically check whether your standards are still up to date. Withdrawn documents will be maintained in effects 2.0 – clearly highlighted and provided with the date of withdrawal in red and a hyperlink to the new document. You can conveniently purchase replacement documents with a click and, thus, keep your standards portfolio up to date.
When the bi-weekly update check identifies new documents available for or added (automatically purchased) to your personal portfolio, you will be informed by e-mail.
User-definable notification on available updates for the subject fields of your choice.
Keep your company's documents up-to-date in a secure place and make the most recent version accessible to selected employees. Simply upload your documents via docs plus, add user-defined bibliographical data and manage them centrally.
Provide standards and your own documents with helpful electronic "stick-on notes". For example, you can create user-defined note fields, such as date of revision, ordering notes or allocation to corporate divisions, and assign them to your documents. Of course, you can search by these notes and share this information with all users in a targeted way.
This function allows you to read the entire document for a limited time (max. 30 seconds per page) in the reading view. This gives you the opportunity to assess in advance whether a document is relevant for you so that you avoid mispurchases and can selectively acquire individual documents.
Through the auto-update service you already receive drafts long before standards are published – thus you can prepare for new developments in due time.
Upon request, Austrian Standards offers you effects 2.0 with an easyUserAdmin interface that allows you to control your users' access to effects 2.0 securely and easily via your own internal IT infrastructure.
Upon request, Austrian Standards digitizes your hard-copy standards as well as other relevant documents (e.g. internal company standards). Find out more about our Digitization service here.
