…delivering core database platform services along with unique CAD System and Reality Capture microservices. Building web browser content transitions to mobile-enabled data and documents while inherently forming digital twins. The platform is designed to accelerate digital transformation by helping companies quickly, easily, and economically deliver data and documents with minimal infrastructure changes. Based upon HTML5 standards, SOCKETWorx offers complete flexibility and control over your choice of LAN/WAN and cloud deployments.

Many Plant Design CAD applications, like CADWorx® PLANT and AutoCAD® PLANT 3D, are configured so they connect to SQL databases.
SOCKETWorx connects to these SQL databases and provides a modern web interface to access data and process it. Users are assigned roles that provide permissions to accomplish tasks.
Access to CAD data centers common tasks such as populating datasheets, generating material take-offs, data driving drawing updates, and marking up documents in a collaborative manner.
Users will adopt SOCKETWorx because it allows them to collaborate in accomplishing tasks using a modern web interface. They will start creating data queries, reports and otherwise consume and produce data to satisfy CAD Project requirements.
The SOCKETWorx 360 module connects users to the reality capture from 3D laser scanners. It integrates with Leica TruView Enterprise in a way to simply link asset database records to scanworlds and the geotags within them.
It solves the problem of finding assets in the realm of reality capture from high definition scanning. It provides users with one interface where they can easily search for assets and then access information, documentation and laser scanworlds.
SOCKETWorx 360 provides the foundation to build data systems around facility assets for operations, maintenance, inspection, and technical services.
Consider the benefits of putting people into a facility from anywhere in the world by finding an asset record in a database. Together, this is what SOCKETWorx 360 and Leica TruView Enterprise do for their users.
SOCKWorx MOC provides microservices to help control the document change process associated with Management of Change (MOC) events.
It is estimated that 95% of MOC events impact critical documents which then need to be changed, or revised. Documents can have multiple MOC events affecting them further necessitating the need for change control.
SOCKETWorx MOC provides this change control.
Users begin the process by creating Document Changes Orders. Once established they can be appended with a list of documents effected, reference documents, markup and attribute data changes.
A built-in workflow helps streamline Change Order processing while collecting time spent on them. SOCKETWorx inherently helps reduce operational bottlenecks by identifying hold-ups.
It also solves the age-old problem of managing change on data-driven documents such as drawings, datasheets, and reports. SOCKETWorx collects changes users make to database field values which have been flagged as document visible.
SOCKETWorx fills the document change order processing void that exists in most Management of Change (MOC) and Engineering Change (ECN) systems. It is most often deployed as a companion rather than a replacement but is robust enough to stand on its own.
The SPECWorx module processes CADWorx® Project Files (PRJ) and makes them, and their contents, available to users.
Piping specification contents is presented in 3 SPECWorx views:
- Projects list all the PRJ files uploaded over time
- Groups list all the piping components group by size range
- Parts list all piping components individually
SPECWorx roles can permit downloading the PRJ files and their companion files such as Usershapes and Topworks. This service provides a piping specification delivery method via the web.
Piping specification can become the foundation for SOCKETWorx pricing catalogs, material inventories and more. See the Material Management System for more details.

SOCKETWorx connects to SQL databases so Users can gain access to the information within using robust microservices.
Connecting Users with powerful querying and reporting will empower them to find and deploy information otherwise unavailable.
If permitted, Users can also change data centralizing many tasks. SOCKETWorx streamlines data population processes.
Within SOCKETWorx Roles are used to establish security for each connection. In this way, user groups are assigned privileges like viewing, editing, extracting, etc.
Once Users are assigned a Role they can easily access and switch between databases from their desktop or mobile devices.
SOCKETWorx reads all SQL tables and provides many microservices for them.
Tables are set active automatically open them for viewing, editing, reporting, datasheets and much more.
Users can add table records too, so SOCKETWorx makes populating SQL tables with new information very easy.
User Roles govern table access so SOCKETWorx controls access and processes like viewing, editing, and exporting.
Users easily adopt global data views and data views they create on their own. Empowering users to query and organize data to their liking promotes system adoption.
Click the Edit button and user transition into Edit Mode, where they can modify data using many worksheet controls like formulas, fill down, copy paste, etc.
While in Edit Mode, SOCKETWorx monitors every modification. Once users click ‘Save Changes’, every previous and new value is logged creating the foundation for managing changes and notifying information stakeholders.
Extracting data to Excel workbook has never been easier. Click the Export button and they are emailed directly to users and anyone they put on distribution.
Excel workbooks can be configured on the export so they can be imported allowing users to work on data offline and sync whenever they are ready.
Report templates are setup so header information is completely configurable. In most cases, SOCKETWorx deployment can import legacy reports as templates.
Extracting data onto in-application datasheets is a very popular and purposeful feature.
Users can import Excel workbooks to establish datasheet templates or simply create the templates from scratch. They are associated to data tables and then users can embed table fields, static fields, and ‘special’ fields. All these fields can satisfy just about any datasheet content.
Datasheets have all the worksheet functions available too, so making calculations, replicating data, etc. is all possible.
Since templates are global, any changes will automatically update every assignment.
Users easily issue revisions individually or in mass using a multi-select feature. Either way, SOCKETWorx captures all the revision history and makes it available for every Datasheet.
Companies generate PDFs daily, so deploy SOCKETWorx so consumers can easily access them.
SOCKETWorx delivers PDF drawings and documents in a very effective manner so users adopt it very quickly.
Document control and user can organize files by connection, by table, or both, providing virtually unlimited groupings.
SOCKETWorx offers a modern interface to view PDF files.
It has all the markup and commenting tools users need to collaborate with each other.
Add clouds, sticky notes, highlights, and even customizable stamps.
All markups are centralized onto one canvas, so users see each others markups, comments and replies encouraging collaboration.
SOCKETWorx streamlines the management of change process associated with PDF markups.
Visible markups can be searched and filtered by document, by users, by type, and user specified tags
Users process markups by updating their status, adding comments, adding references, changing colors, and making invisible. When making them invisible, users effectively rendering markups complete, obsolete, or no longer relevant closing the loop on the markup process.
One or more markups across all documents can be processed at once, so users can quickly process them.
In many situations, PDF files are associated or reference one another. SOCKETWorx provides users the ability to attach one to many, or many to one.
This attachment capability can be applied to database records too.
Attaching PDFs to other PDFs or to database records enables users to quickly access them from the Viewer. Having them attached to each other helps in so many ways.
LINKWorx is a Worx Plugin and one of its features is to add SOCKETWorx hyperlinks to symbols and objects within AutoCAD and BricsCAD drawings. These hyperlinks make the PDF files published for consumption SOCKETWorx ‘smart’.
When publishing ‘smart’ PDFs from CAD the hyperlinks become embedded and highly functional within the PDF Viewer. User will click on them and SOCKETWorx will load associated data and PDF files so they can be quickly accessed.
