IndySoft Version 12 Logo
We are happy to announce we are starting the new year with our version 12 release!!  With over 200 major and minor feature additions/enhancements, this is our biggest release ever!   Here are the highlights of the new features and enhancements which are now available!

What’s New!

  • Automated Tech Sync – Easily transfer data between the lab and technician for offsite calibrations.
  • Automated User Management of your Customer Portal (Read Only) – Portal customers can add new Users without interaction with the lab.  A Pin-code system is used to automate this process.  Portal customers can now request lost passwords themselves through an automated process.
  • Branch Support – Branch fields to assist with Workflow/Statistics/Automation of multi-location Commercial Labs.
  • Built-in Version Control System – Version Control for all customizable areas of the software: Reports, Event Configuration, Layouts, Custom Scripting.  Easily track changes, document, and also roll-back to prior versions when required.
  • Charge Template System – For customers needing to split Charges away from Templates, in order to reduce updating, charges can now be grouped across many templates at once.
  • Data Rollback Feature to Account for Pending Document Failures – A failure of the Document Sign-off will roll back Equipment Data so it can be corrected and a new report be generated from the snapshot of the equipment data.
  • Equipment Categories – You can now use Equipment Categories to pre-define Masters/Standards needed for calibration work.  Equipment Categories can be used to specify Capabilities for Branches, Vendors, and Technicians.
  • Hide Certificates Option – Allows Commercial Labs to Hide Certificates until they are completely ready for viewing from the customer portal.
  • Holidays Dialog in Work Scheduling – Holidays can be manually input for Read-Only display.
  • Incomplete Event Status – Any Incomplete Event can now have a custom status indication for easy identification of why events cannot be completed (e.g. Needs Repair, Awaiting Parts, Awaiting PO, etc.)
  • IndySoft Print Server – Install the new Print Server at multiple locations to easier handle Printer Routing.  For users using WebTierTools with WebTier just for printer routing capabilities, this new option can replace that requirement for multiple printer routing.
  • IndySoft Spreadsheet – An Excel clone that will allow for most Calibration Results already written in Excel to be performed without having to actually purchase Excel.
  • Master Scheduling System – Track Masters that are to be used on specific jobs and schedule them using the IndySoft Work Scheduling system.
  • Multiple Test Point Setups per Template/Equipment – Test Points can now be divided up into multiple tabs for different levels of Test Point setups.  Equipment can have a Default to be used or asked for at the time of calibration.
  • New Statistics Utility for Workflows – Easily Track Turnaround, Total Calibration, Masters Used, etc.
  • New Certificate Revision Level Support – Certificates, when modified, can keep the same Certification Number with a changing Revision Level.
  • New Specification System (built off Enhancements of Uncertainty Attributes) – Enhanced to support Parent/Child relationships for Specification Lookups.  Set Items (Gage Block Sets, Weights, etc) also added as a new Specification type.
  • Physical Signature Option for Work Orders and Events – All IndySoft documents now have an easy to access Signature Database Image field to access said signature.  IndySoft Signature iPhone Application can also be used to grab signature.
  • 12 New Event Fields – Branch, Start Date, Start Time, BP, BP Type, Incomplete Event Status and 6 User Defined.
