Spix.PDF app

SPIX industry presents:
“Spix.PDF app” for the field workers

The Spix.PDF app provides a vocal interface to manipulate PDF documents, and access to drawing and instructions. This voice interface gives the possibility for the workers in the shop floor to navigate in the document, reach a given page, zoom on a page section, and eventually access search functions for specific terms inside the document.
