Why do we do what we do? How did the product AutoCal+ come about? What developments are planned for the near future? In our roadmap you can see a brief overview of our history and our future
AutoCal, first in operation in 1987,used in company only to guide the calibrations with our own Death Weight Tester (DWT) and to save data. The software was written in MAI basic programming language. Soon customers showed interest in this program and we put it on the market and start selling it. The AutoCal product was born.
After a few years, AutoCal is written for MS-DOS. This created new possibilities such as entering standards, make corrections, control instruments and automatic calibration. From the start, AutoCal has always been able to operate with Tradinco products and products of other manufacturers. Being truly brand independant software.
In 1995 AutoCal became compatible for Windows, written in delphi which allowed the customers to execute multiple calibrations at the same time. A big advantage. Customers can now also make reports themselves.
Over the years, new drivers for different measuring instruments, standards and smart transmitters from different manufacturers have been added. Next to this, a variety of database types became available offering increased compatibility with the customers IT network.
The decision is made to renew AutoCal. Changing customer and market requirements, decentralized working, user-friendliness, technical possibilities and quality are the motives. A start is made with drawing up all specifications.
The development of AutoCal+ begins.
A customer panel has been formed, consisting of users who use AutoCal daily. AutoCal+ is demonstrated and feedback is collected. More will follow after this meeting.
