Users wanting to properly track scheduled downtime can now plan for specific downtime in the shop. Users can schedule holidays, plant shutdowns, planned maintenance and more. These planned downtimes will automatically be recorded and reported on.  

DataXchange now has an import feature. Users can import the current part, ideal times and work orders by using an  import template. Once that information is in the system, they can see real-time data regarding work orders as well as historical information.  

For shops with older equipment, the hardware can be added to legacy machines to monitor electrical signals. These signals alert users if the machine is running or not running. 

Many other improvements have been made to the software. Modifications have been made with Focas connectivity, charts and reports, RTV screens, user events and more.
