About Compass Points

Compass Points is a premium tool available on the ASTM Compass Platform. Compass Points act as custom bookmarks that give users the ability to pinpoint important components of standards. Automate your process for managing changes to standards with this live link that stays connected to your standards forever. As standards are updated, users are notified, minimizing your risk.

Data is growing exponentially in engineering and testing. We designed Compass Points to help you keep your standards data accurate and manageable.

How it Works

Each Compass Point includes the standard publisher, standard number and title, creator’s contact, date, time plus notes and overlays. Users can name the Point to associate with a project code, part number, or process ID for easy retrieval.

A spreadsheet view by standard and by account makes it easy to sort your standards data. Compass Points will always keep you informed when a standard is updated, reducing risk for your organization.

Compass Points are kept in perpetuity for every version of standards from ASTM, ASME, API, AASHTO, ENs, and others. An ROI savings is generated by creating efficiencies in workflows.
